New Release: Tulisa - Young

30 April Critic Jonni 0 Comments

I have watched this music video over and over and over again the past few weeks on the music channels. The song is extremely catchy and the music video's not bad either. Been waiting to review this one on my blog but decided to wait until New Release.

Tulisa Contostavlos used to be in a band called N-Dubz, they have recently split with Dappy, also going solo. For those of you unaware, Tulisa and Dappy are cousins and share the same last name. As for the third person in the group, it is Fazer who used to be Tulisa's boyfriend and who is writing songs for quite a few artists. Tulisa recently won the X Factor UK with her act: Little Mix, and she has been confirmed as one of a few returning judges. As for what the future might bring... It looks extremely bright for this person, she is going to reach the top pretty soon.

"Young", previously called We Are Young, is released this week, and it's off to a flying start and currently number one on the UK iTunes chart, but with big competition from Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe", which has been number one for the past 4 weeks, can Tulisa stay up there? There is also competition from Fun. Featuring Janelle Monáe "We Are Young" and Cover Drive's "Sparks", it's definitely going to be a chart you do not want to miss. The song was released just after her sex tape got released. This got everyone thinking it was a PR stunt since one of the lyrics in this song is "I make mistakes that I learn from". However it wasn't a PR stunt and merely a coincidence. The sex tape also features MC Ultra.

The music video relates really well with the song, it's all about having fun and enjoying your life no matter what, even if mistakes happen you learn from them as you are young and at the end of the day there's nothing you can do about it.

There's a lot to like about this music video, the fact that Tulisa looks sexy and strong at the same time. There's the start when her bags get left behind, but at the end of the day it wouldn't fit in that car. I like how they take that card from the cleaning lady, which get's them into the best hotel room... I also love the goat, it's so adorable, but also the fact that she wrecks that beautiful artistic black paper! What am I talking about? She made it better. But what makes that scene is the footage just before she writes "The Female Boss AKA Tulisa x" as she makes the "shh" sign and she has shifty eyes too.

This music video and song reminds me a lot of Cascada's "Summer Of Love". There are also a few look-a-likes, such as at the start the old guy looks like Harry Redknapp, didn't really notice him until a YouTube commenter mentioned it. And I also think one of Tulisa's friends looks like Kirk Norcross. There may be a few more, any suggestions, comment below!

Overall a great catchy song, but quite a bit of competition for number one, can Tulisa do it? As for the accompanying music video I haven't got a bad thing to say about it, it's funny, great and FUN. I can't think of a single thing that's not good, and therefore this rating is clearly deserved.
