New Release: Stooshe Featuring Travie McCoy - Love Me

March 05, 2012 Critic Jonni 0 Comments

Stooshe are the new girl band on the block, ready to storm the charts like mad. They follow after Little Mix, who managed a number one thanks to The X Factor. It's definitely the year for girl bands. Stooshe is a pop group consisting of 3 members who are Alexandra Buggs, Karis Anderson and Courtney Rumbold. They were put together last year, and although they have already released one single (that didn't do all that well), this one is known as their first single, and it's going to be big, if it isn't already.

The song "Love Me" was originally called "Fuck Me" and was first released on YouTube, however it wasn't released as a single, deciding to choose "Betty Woz Gone" instead. It was then re-recorded with additional vocals from no other than Travie McCoy (known for "Billionaire") and has been released on iTunes this week. The song was written by Alexandra Buggs, Darren Lewis, Iyiola Babalola, Joe Perry and Karis Anderson.

The music video isn't amazing, I have to admit that, but it is good and links in with the song, but there's just alarm bells that ring, pronouncing that it's a low-budget video. However, the girls have made it look a lot better, and although they don't look like they suit one another, with no prominent girl band style, it really works. But I definitely suggest they need to look more like a group, the individual band members look totally different, and suggests that they're more of a collaboration group than an actual girl band, suggesting that they may split up in the future, fingers crossed that doesn't actually happen.

This music video is set, in what looks like a hotel, and the girls are both staff, and guests. The corridor makes me laugh, as it is quite narrow, and the girls can barely fit, and it's so funny when they come to a doorway/arch as they have to go through it one at a time.

Travie McCoy adds his spin to things, although I don't know how it helps, if Stooshe did it all by themselves, with no collaboration, I reckon it would have been better. I also like the fact that the guest Stooshe's all have their own rooms and are doing their own thing, however it furthers the point I made about them not being a collective girl group.

Overall, there isn't a lot to say about this music video, it looks low-budget and not in a good way. The song is catchy and interesting, but the video isn't so.
