Jameia - Antonia |

Okay, I'm still catching up on my blogs and here is a Thursday Revisit. I am not going to lie, I have never been so keen on this song. I do have it on my iTunes, it's just not all that catchy. However, she absolutely nails it in this music video, which I haven't seen before today, and now I'm in love with the song. This is why I love music videos, it can really change people's conception of certain songs, both in a good way and a bad way. Watch Antonia bring it as she dances in the street looking smoking hot and sexy, all the while expressing the meaning of the song in this brilliant music video for "Jameia".

Antonia, full name Antonia Iacobescu, is one of the top female Romanian artists around at the moment, and she has fully captured me recently as she releases fired-up tracks on Global Records. She's had plenty of hits in Romania and even went international early on in her career. Now, Global Records are certainly capitalising on all their artists, and I expect one of them will hit charts all over the world with one of their songs until then we'll treasure every single one of them, as well as the artists' previous musical releases. I am hoping that Antonia releases a new album soon - we definitely need one from her!

This music video is definitely a surprise. Antonia looks beautiful throughout and she clearly had one of the best times on this set as she moved about and danced, both with the dancers and without them. It has this 90's / 00's street theme going on that I truly am loving, and hope a range of music videos bring this theme back in the near-future.

This street scene is intersected by profile and performance shots of Antonia in a totally different place; yet, still looking fantastic. She seriously can pull off anything - if you don't believe me, check out G Girls' "Call The Police".

She brings the party to the street, and we can't help but enjoy it from start to finish. The dancing is on point throughout, the choreography is nailed in every way and it's pure fire. We miss this side of Antonia because we haven't seen her dance in a music video for some time. She can certainly bring it as much as the professionals.

I also love the fact that everyone on the street is watching her and putting up posters of her. And, let's not forget about the children who pick out a tattoo design for her - which she has done and still has today - although she covers it over with make-up during some of her shoots.

Overall, this music video is full of energy and really shows off Antonia is a positive light. It also made me like the song too, which I wasn't sure it would be able to. A slight narrative would certainly have made this visual that little more intricate.
