The belgian queen of trash, Kate Ryan, is back with this horrible diddy that I refuse to finish listening to. In this crusade against the eardrums she's aided by Dutch Dj Robert Abigail. The video does nothing to relieve the aggravation, instead it adds to it. Watch at own risk.
Like the title says. This is atrocious. This 'song' sounds like a spoiled kid made her daddy buy a music studio for her. When Hadise is not busy talking, her vocal ability is quite disturbing. She even resorts to barking. If I once praised her for innovation, I'll denounce her now for regression.
Hadise, once in the top 5 of the Eurovision song contest after a lousy vocal demonstration, is back, Demet Akalin style. Even if she's very young, she used (and abused) liquid make-up and post production retouch. Oh vanity. The song is nice however, not too fresh, but nice.
Or better, a lot. Not known for her state-of-the-art videos, Kate Ryan's latest is no exeption. This video would've been great back in 1999, but now it just doesn't measure up. It was better to save money on graphics and invest on camera work. Also the clothes are way wrong. Why does she insist on sexy when she's clearly not able to pull it off anymore. Kate, I really don't hate you, please take this as constructive critique.
I do admit one does not have to re-invent the wheel all the time, but there's something in between inspiration and stealing. Belgium's Basto has a hand for copying the sound Tim Berg/Avicii did on his single "Bromance" and "Seek Bromance", which on its own wasn't completely original, but at least not blatently stolen. That's the difference between inspiration and being a copy-machine.
Hadise started her singing career in Belgium, where she enjoyed some moderate succes, along with a top 40 entry in the Netherlands. But nobody could appreciate her as much as her second-mother country. Many may know her from Düm Tek Tek, but she already had massive hits in Turkey before that. Now she's back with a truckload of platinum blond extensions and sex-appeal. We know from her Eurovision performance she's not the greatest singer (she had a quite nasal quality to her performance) but she does innovate the Turkish pop-music scene, so thumbs up for that!
