Jonas Brothers Featuring Big Rob - Burnin' Up

November 24, 2011 Critic Jonni 0 Comments

This song is really catchy, as much as I hate to admit it, it is. The Jonas Brothers are a three piece band who are currently on hiatus. They consist of Joe Jonas, Nick Jonas, and Kevin Jonas. Currently they are on solo projects, Joe Jonas has released some solo material. Nick Jonas is in a band called Nick Jonas and the Administration, and Kevin.... Well he got married, but that's it... Maybe he's waiting for the brothers to get back together, since he never sings and maybe he can't sing much, if at all.

This song is the group's second best charting single in the UK, however this song was a B-Side to their other song "When You Look Me In The Eyes". Personally I see this song as the classic Disney song. Anyone who comes out from Disney, such as the Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez; is guaranteed to end up singing a song similar to this. That is why this song has been criticised to being similar to a lot of different songs. Besides these sort of songs tend to be extremely catchy, and I have to agree.

The song was written by the brothers themselves, which makes it personal to them. The song is about being at a party or somewhere and there is this girl, and you feel this automatic connection with her and she does to you. I think it is clever to write a song based only on that.

This music video links in pretty well with the song even though it is a little absurd, especially with all the film similarities. But this is what makes it good. I'm not entirely sure if the UK music video version has Big Rob, as the single doesn't have his rapping, but maybe the music video does, I'm not entirely sure, but I think it's nice for it being a collaboration.

I especially like the start, the use of making the Jonas Brothers think about what their music video is going to be like and them visualising it is an extremely interesting way of starting a music video, and I think most of the Jonas Brothers' music videos are very well thought up.

I like how Nick Jonas becomes James Bond, Joe Jonas becomes a Sonny Crockett parody and Kevin Jonas becomes a Kung Fu Master. I also like the fact that a lot of people make cameos including Nick Jonas' (now ex) girlfriend Selena Gomez. The other people who appear are David Carradine, Robert Davi and Danny Trejo. I bet you there are more cameo appearances but I can't quite find them.

Overall I like the song, it's very catchy, and it's accompanying music video is just as good, it's a little over the top and is only slightly linked in well, but some bits are funny including when Big Rob does all three. I think it deserves this rating, and I hope you guys agree with me.
