Inna - Rendez Vous

February 07, 2016 Critic Jonni 0 Comments

Inna dropped this music video on Friday, and I've been waiting for today to review it. She hit one billion views on YouTube on Friday, so as a thank you to her fans she released this music video. Sultry, sexy and scenic, Inna displays herself like she usually does, she loves to have fun, meet guys, look back on the past and drive. You'd always have a good time when Inna is around.

Inna, real name Elena Apostoleanu, has become the richest recording artist in Eastern Europe. She continues her success by releasing this single. Again she proves how amazing she is by infusing the French language into an English-sung song. This is her follow-up to "Yalla". Inna recently announced a new album for the summer, which I'm totally excited for. This could be her last single from her self-titled album. The song was written by Thomas Troelsen and Andreas Schuller, and in English actually means: Appointment, although Rendez Vous sounds so much sexier.

The video is directed by Michael Abt and John Perez, it is filmed in Pura Vida, Costa Rica. This is a typical Inna music video, and they all are becoming pretty similar, and yet she exudes confidence and passion for the music she is singing.

The video has amazing summer vibes, which is exactly what the song portrays. Inna always gives us the perfect summer anthems even if it is winter. However she makes me totally jealous seeing these videos whilst I'm in the wintry UK.

Inna is travelling and having fun, we've seen this in "Crazy Sexy Wild / Tu Si Eu" as well as "Un Momento", "Wow" and "More Than Friends". It seems she needs at least one of these music videos per an album, and considering her catalogue, it's hard to imagine her music videos to all be different. Although most of her music videos are performance based, with extremely little narrative structure.

The field where Inna performs is probably where the video loses the audience's interest. She looks sexy as always and yet once again is given no choreography and the camera angles just doesn't work for her. It's almost as if she doesn't know what to do in front of the camera, which frustrates me as we all know she can perform much better than this.

There's a slight narrative to her travelling. She finds a guy on a beach, relatable to the lyrics of the song, and their group of friends join together and travel to a few places together. Inna is stunning as usual, but I feel this video lacks depth and has been done a few too many times before in Inna's case.
