It's Gotta Be You - Isaiah |

He won The X Factor Australia and later represented his country at the Eurovision Song Contest 2017, but it was this song that was his debut single, his X Factor winner's single. It did moderately well around the world, charting in many different countries, which totally made him an obvious choice for Eurovision. He managed to place ninth, which isn't bad going. This music video is sweet and relatable. Watch Isaiah sing this beautiful song to a woman in this performance based music video for his winner's single of The X Factor Australia, titled "It's Gotta Be You".

Isaiah, full name Isaiah Firebrace, has only just launched on the music scene, after winning the eighth season of The X Factor Australia. This launched this debut single, which was then followed up with a debut album, which also charted well. His follow-up single, and Eurovision song, didn't chart as well this one did, which just goes to show that even Australia wasn't impressed with his song. However, this one has a lot more soul in it; although, personally, I much prefer "Don't Come Easy" over this one. This song was written by Anthony Egizii and David Musumeci.

Directed by Anthony Rose, the music video is a pure performance visual, that sees Isaiah singing this song to a woman, who is dressed very sexily. She's just as cute as he is, but he's way more adorable; especially as he sings this song with such passion and soul.

There's plenty of beautiful scenes; it was shot near some water, and so the sun reflects off the shiny surface creating this amazing setting. There's not a lot going on, the woman he is singing to is just moving about on the rocks, whilst he sits there - or stands - singing the song.

It feels more like a Manel Navarro song than an Isaiah song, considering the acts of Eurovision 2017. Comparing this one to "Don't Come Easy" certainly shows how far he has come within a year and the direction of his new music. I cannot wait to find out what he releases next.
