Chart Mondays: Jess Glynne - Take Me Home

December 14, 2015 Critic Jonni 0 Comments

Again, Justin Bieber is still at number one with "Love Yourself". and still no official music video. Which means I review any song in the top 10 of the UK singles chart... Unfortunately this leaves me with two songs. I have practically been avoiding this one, as I am not that interested in Jess Glynne, as well as this being the official Children In Need song of 2015. The song is performed beautifully and effortlessly. Jess Glynne is stripped back in this music video, as well as stripped off, naked, vulnerable, exposed and innocent, she shines through with her vocal, asking a guy if they would take her home.

Jess Glynne's career has only just started, but it will continue. She is currently the British female artist with the most number ones, slowly followed by Cheryl, who also has the same amount of number ones, only Jess Glynne has achieved this in the less amount of time. I am interested in what Jess Glynne will come out with next, she has stiff competition to keep her title, especially with Rita Ora being third in this list. She is going to have to come out with a banging tune that will smash the charts. Unfortunately, with the backing of Children in Need, this song only hit number six. It was written by Jessica Glynne, Wayne Hector, Steve McCutcheon and Nick Tsang.

The music video, directed by Declan Whitebloom, it's extremely personal. A perfect performance piece, with a lot of emotion entailed. As previously mention it shows her at her most vulnerable. Totally exposed. And so so so brave.

However, it feels low budget. This is a star, right here before us, and even though it's emotionally impacted, she still fails to make me excited by her song or the video. I just want to shake her and make her connect to the song through the music video, it's just not working.
