Unthink You - Wiktoria |

I had no idea what to review today, so I let YouTube recommendations decide. Now, Wiktoria first came to my attention when she performed in Melodifestivalen 2016. She is performing once again in Melodifestivalen 2017, and maybe she'll do better. Her song last year was "Save Me" which definitely was catchy. Hopefully, her new one will be just as good. This song was released recently, as a little bit of promotion for her before she graces the Melodifestivalen stage. Her voice is phenomenal as always and I cannot wait to see how she does in the contest, can she go all the way and represent Sweden at Eurovision 2017? Wiktoria brings all her stage presence in the performance music video "Unthink You" that also introduces a talented dancer who interprets the song into dance effortlessly.

Wiktoria, full name Wiktoria Johansson, is fairly new to the music scene, with only a few singles, but she has already made her name known. "Save Me" was quite the banger of Melodifestivalen 2016 and it charted well in Sweden, managing to get to number three and going on to achieve a platinum status. She has released a few singles since, including this one; but her main focus is on Melodifestivalen 2017, where she will perform "As I Lay Me Down". She is hoping to win and become the representative of Sweden for Eurovision 2017. She also voiced Moana in the Swedish-dubbed version of the Disney film of the same name. This song is a banger of a tune and should've been big. She has a killer voice that just oozes future success.

Directed by Michael Sjösten, this music video easily displays Wiktoria's amazing performance vibes, all intercut with an amazing dancer who does look quite like Troye Sivan, but it's not.

The dancer takes on an interesting interpreted dance that is so intricate that it just goes to show how technically great he really is. He kind of takes the spotlight from Wiktoria, though. His moves are incredible and we just want to keep watching, which totally distracts us from the artist.

As for Wiktoria, she brings her usual flair to the music video, seriously giving the camera all the great shots, and performing the song with all she's got. It works well but if the dancer and Wiktoria met in a final scene, it would bring an unthinkable narrative that is clearly missing in this music video.
