First Love (feat. Sabrina Carpenter) - Lost Kings |

Sabrina Carpenter has been on form recently, to the extent where she's slightly grabbing me as a fan; if she keeps dropping bangers then I might just have to start buying all her music. Well, that depends on the money I have and whether I can actually afford all her music, so I'm hoping she drops something I dislike soon so I that decide not to buy all her music. This collaboration is amazingly perfect, and I'm sure that after a few weeks rotation, the song will go viral and chart well globally. Watch Sabrina Carpenter and Lost Kings show off their festival gigs whilst bringing an expressive performance scene in this music video for "First Love".

Lost Kings are an American DJ duo consisting of Robert Abisi and Nick Shanholtz. They have been releasing music since 2015 and have collaborated with some big stars, including Emily Warren, Fifth Harmony's Ally Brooke, Tinashe, and now Sabrina Carpenter. They have been building up their career since they launched in 2014, and I'm pretty sure it won't be long until they start to get chart hit after chart hit. As for Sabrina Carpenter, she's best known for starring as Maya Hart in the Disney Channel series Girl Meets World. She, too, has been building up her music career, and after a really tough start, she released "Thumbs", which got a whole lot of attention and charted well around the world. Since then she's gone from strength to musical strength, and I'm literally excited to see what she releases next. The song was written by Norris Shanholtz, Robert Abisi, Rami Yacoub, Kristoffer Fogelmark, Albin Nedler, and Brittany Amaradio.

The music video sees interspersed scenes of Sabrina Carpenter and the Lost Kings. The former is walking down the street, singing on her balcony, and just generally going about her day. As for the latter's scenes, they are chaotic, to say the least, full of energy, prepared to show off any way they can.

Sabrina Carpenter keeps her cool throughout, attempting to bring the emotion to the song, although not quite hitting it. With the Lost Kings going all out, she fails to keep the audience in. Both artists fall flat because their scenes are on totally different spectrums.

I feel like the Lost Kings are giving us backstage gossip and an insight into their chaotic life; whereas Sabrina Carpenter is actually trying to film a music video. The mesh of the scenes just plays around with the viewers and doesn't quite keep them engaged. They're lucky the song is a complete banger of a tune because that is the only reason viewers make it to the end of the video.
