Belgium Entry: Loïc Nottet - Rhythm Inside

December 14, 2016 Critic Jonni 0 Comments

There are two music videos for this song, this is the original one, whilst the other was released months after his performance on the Eurovision stage. This was another favourite of mine at the Eurovision  Song Contest 2015, and was definitely worthy of winning; instead, Loïc Nottet came fourth with 217 points for Belgium. In this video for "Rhythm Inside", Loïc Nottet gets all wet and sexy whilst contrasting similar types of people.

Loïc Nottet first made a name for himself in Belgium by coming second in The Voice of Belgique third series. He was chosen through internal selection to represent the country at the Eurovision Song Contest 2015. Since coming fourth, he has gone on to release a second single titled "Million Eyes", as well as announcing some concerts. With a voice like his, Loïc Nottet deserves international fame, and he must never give up. I love this song and it's follow-up single, and I cannot wait for an actual album from him. This song was written by Loïc Nottet and Beverly Jo Scott.

Directed by Josh Brandão & Nicolai Kornum, this music video is a pure performance piece, with actors showing differences between similar people, all the while Loïc Nottet giving a very sexy performance as he gets wet and looks sultrily into the camera.

There isn't an awful lot going on in this music video. People are displayed wondrously, showing complete contrasts in people who look similar. It just goes to show that what you see isn't always what you get. It's quite comedic at times.

As usual, Loïc Nottet's performance piece is intense and exciting; although, it was so much better on stage at Eurovision 2015. The water makes him totally sexy, and even the red paint does things you wouldn't expect. I hope more sexy music videos are on their way.

This music video totally differs to the other one that was later released. The other music video is purely narrative and totally interesting if a little confusing. This one, however, is quite stripped back - although not as much as the single cover suggests - and could've done with more of a narrative.
