Hot Video Alert: Lee DeWyze - Sweet Serendipity
It's 'new music Tuesday' and what do we have? A new music video from American Idol Season 9-winner Lee DeWyze of course. The video actually premiered on VH1 yesterday but it's online today, the same day his debut album, Live It Up is released. The video is cute, featuring a snapshot in the day in the life of DeWyze and a pretty girl. The video has the girl running all around the city, following clues he's apparently left for him, all leading up to the inevitable meet-up, where the two (OF COURSE) walk away hand in hand.
While the video might be a tinsy bit cliche, my biggest complaint about the video is the blatantly obvious product placement shamelessly displayed throughout the clip. Cars with voice activated radios, fancy cell phones, etc. OVERKILL. It felt a bit like an American Idol Ford music video and not in a good way (if there is a good way). All of that aside, the song is STILL catchy and a big freakin' deal, considering DeWyze is the FIRST Idol winner to date to receive songwriting credit on a debut single. The David Glass-produced song has yet to make a dent on the Billboard Hot 100 but it has charted on both the Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart (#37) and the Adult Pop Songs chart (#38). Lee DeWyze is a talented guy with a great voice so I wish him all of the success in the world. I just wish the video played a little bit less like a commercial. Lee's debut album Live It Up is out now. Get yourself a copy.
