Christina Aguilera Featuring Demi Lovato - Fall In Line

16 September Critic Jonni 0 Comments


I really do like to just browse through YouTube, sometimes, and a music video will just pop out at me and this is certainly one of these days; I didn't even know that there was a music video to this awesome collaboration! "Fall In Line" by Christina Aguilera and Demi Lovato is full-on powerful! Their voices are some of the strongest in the music industry and they both manage to blow us away on the verses of this song and then they turn it up for their killer harmonies! The track is also highly emotional with the lyrics filled with female empowerment, and it is just super inspiring to all who hear it. What's also shocking is that it wasn't a chart success around the world, hitting number 99 in the UK and number one on the US Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles, and 97 in Canada - I mean, seriously? This should'be been top 10 around the world! This is one absolutely amazing collaboration and totally deserves to be heard more.

Accompanying the song is this amazing music video, directed by Luke Gilford. The opening scene sees two children playing in a field together who look like younger versions of Christina Aguilera and Demi Lovato (although there is an 11-year age difference in real life however this music video makes it out like they're the same age), who are taken away by people in black. The song kicks in and we see that both artists are now all-grown-up and living in a containment facility and held prisoner. At times, they are forced to sing on a set - which could relate to the music industry as a whole (especially women) where artists are forced to sing certain songs that are likely to become hits and to also look a certain way and to act sexy on-screen. Christina Aguilera and Demi Lovato make a plan to escape and end up breaking out of their chains and escaping the facility, and finally seeing daylight again and to breathe fresh air. A well-crafted music video with a brilliant concept. They could've added a bit more here and there but they brought it regardless and made a truly unforgettable music video! I could watch this again and again and again!
