Inna - Sun Is Up

13 October Critic Jonni 0 Comments

It's time to revisit Inna on a Thursday. It wasn't exactly my plan to do another Inna song, but I actually can't believe I haven't reviewed this music video yet, and since it's over five years old and is probably going to be a guarantee on the set list in Dublin, Ireland; I have to do this! This is one of Inna's biggest songs, next to "Hot", it gave her a second shot at international fame, but unfortunately, it didn't stick around. Inna is sexy and provocative in this music video for "Sun Is Up" as she poses for pictures and videos for her love interest, Tore Frisholm Jr, who is behind the camera.

Inna, real name Elena Apostoleanu, has had a lengthy career, she is one of the biggest female singers from Romania and in 2011 became the richest earning female singer in Romania and Eastern Europe. She's had many hits and worked with some of the world's biggest stars. Now, she's gearing up for the release of her fifth studio album, and there's no stopping her. Her versatility is inspiring, she has sung in a few different languages to show originality and to appeal to a wider audience. I can't wait to hear what she has in store for her new album release. This song was an international success, having charted all over the world. It was written by Sebastian Barac, Radu Bolfea and Marcel Botezan.

Directed by Alex Herron; shot in Marbella, Spain; it features the love interest, male actor and model Tore Frisholm Jr; this music video has it all.

This is a full performance piece, with Inna singing in a few different sets, from the stunning pool scene to the bedroom scene, Inna doesn't miss a step or a beat. She performs like she's on a stage, looking incredible throughout and giving high energy vibes even when she isn't moving much.

She is posing for video shots and photos with her on-screen love interest Tore Frisholm Jr, who acts as the photographer, capturing her every movement. I like how we have the makeup scene as if gearing her up for the photo shoot. The party scene at the end suggests that there was an afterparty, maybe leading on to the bedroom scene later on. There's a slight narrative but not by much.

Overall it's a slightly relatable piece, it's a club song and there is a party going on. The sun is up in the scenes as well. It's a great interpretation of the lyrics, but her music videos haven't advanced all that much. Many of them are very similar only difference being the scenes and the settings. Regardless, I am literally so excited to see her live in December in Ireland.
