Imani Williams Featuring Sigala & Blonde - Don't Need No Money

Imani Williams dropped her debut track a few weeks ago, which she later followed up with this awesome music video, that I can't stop playing. Having already published articles for Outlet Magazine, as well as CelebMix, as well as an article about the video, I feel like I haven't got much else to say about this video, let alone this song, however I am still loving it, this song will never get old. Especially with Imani Williams' outstanding vocals. Imani Williams don't need no money when she's got us as her fans, with full dance choreography and perfect performance vibes, this girl is going to go far!

Imani Williams is just 16, can you believe how young she is? She first came on to the music scene, with the help of Sigala on the awesome track "Say You Do", now she's released her own single, this one features Sigala and Blonde. Her vocals are on point on this track and the song is fire! We'll definitely be hearing more from Imani Williams, for sure! Sigala, real name Bruce Fielder, has had many hits, and pretty much launched Imani Williams' career. Having already had many chart hits, Sigala's future looks bright. And so does the other feature, Blonde, a producing duo consisting of Jacob Manson and Adam Englefield. They have had global hit after global hit. They've worked with the stars and the rising stars, and they will definitely continue hitting the charts hard. This song was written by Bruce Fielder, Patrizia Helander, Jacob Manson and Hampus Lindvall. It is currently stuck in my head once again.

Directed by Carly Cussen, the video is definitely high quality, with Imani Williams looking fresh!

With a full choreography, that is performed to perfection along with amazing technique, Imani Williams has the spotlight on her, and boy does she work it!

The choreography relates effortlessly with the song, whilst Imani Williams sends out performance vibes sure to make you want to see her live.

The visual scenes where it's just her, is stylish and sexy. I love the denim jacket she is wearing, and she totally suits it much better than I ever would.

The last scene is a shock, how the hell they managed to control her hair into a plait is unbelievable and proves that Imani Williams has an amazing style team behind her.

Overall what else can I say about this video, I've literally exhausted every comment I can make amongst all the published articles on Outlet and CelebMix. But Imani Williams is worth it, she deserves promotion and she deserves recognition, because a vocal like that going unheard in the world will mean the end of good vocalists in the music industry. Imani Williams is FIRE in every way, and I cannot wait for more new music, for now I'll just keep this and "Say You Do" on repeat.

Blonde Featuring Alex Newell - All Cried Out

The final big announcement for Birmingham Pride 2016 was Blonde! This duo has been setting the chart alight in recent years and they are releasing banger after banger. They will be the perfect act on the main stage as they are definitely not short of hit singles. Blonde and Alex Newell collaborate on this awesome track which relinquishes a woman's past love, she's all cried out and is over it now.

Blonde are a house production duo consisting of Jacob Manson and Adam Englefield. They hit worldwide success with "I Loved You" which features Melissa Steel. Continuing on with that success, they have recently released a song with Craig David, "Nothing Like This", which is firing up the UK singles chart. This duo is the one to watch, they're current, they're releasing hit after hit, and I'm sure a number one is going to be their next step. Alex Newell features on this track, he is going much further than we all first thought he would when he appeared on The Glee Project, and later Glee. He has pushed for a music career and boy has he got one, he is making waves on both sides of the Atlantic, more so in the UK. Alex Newell is the name we're all watching out for, a vocal superstar, he is a talent that will reach new heights soon enough. This song hit number four on the UK charts and was written by Lucas Secon, Cass Lowe, Jacob Manson, Adam Englefield, D. McLean and Rachel Keen.

Directed by Can Evgin, and features Louise Monot as the actress in this fully narrative music video.

The story develops as the song continues. It fully relates to the lyrics, as we watch her pack a bag, that contains a photo and a gun. Louise gets alcohol from a store before going to a garage and holding a mechanic hostage whilst stealing a gas cylinder.

The whole experience doesn't make sense especially since the getaway could be easily spotted by any police car. They arrive at a dock to which they get on board a speed boat, and just as I think the storyline has nothing to do with the song, they send the bag on it's floating merry way and shoot at it from a far distance.

This is where the budget was not blown. They spent so much money on everything that leads up to this monumental point, that they clearly didn't have enough to afford a special effects team or an amazing animation team to make the explosion look real. Instead we are left with an obvious fake blast that fails in every aspect. Very unexciting ending, with an incredible anticipated lead-up.

Overall, a perfect narrative video that epically fails at the end, and yet it's still believable regardless. The ending may look unrealistic, yet it answers all our questions and relates it right back to the song.
