Hot Video Alert: Anoop Desai - All Is Fair (Crazy Love)
American Idol Season 8 alum, Anoop Desaireleased a new video for the song, "All Is Fair (Crazy Love)" off his Ian Schreier-produced debut EP, All Is Fair. The single was written by Desai and David Mikush and was the featured track in September of last year when Clear Channel Music and iheartradio chose him as an "artist to watch." "All is Fair (Crazy Love)" is Desai's second single and serves as the follow up to "My Name," co-written by Brandon Rogers and Desai and released in March of last year. The video starts out fairly typical, with Anoop, wooing a pretty girl with his voice. Then she whips out two pistols and shoots 3 holes right through him. By the time the video is over, Anoop's been set aflame and electrocuted. I guess this is where the "crazy love" part of the song title comes into play.
I love Anoop Desai (always have) and think he has a terrific voice. The problem with his singles is that they lack a certain amount of originality - both songs drift into generic R&B territory. That's not to say that Anoop doesn't sing them well, I'm just disappointed with the material. I think Desai has a great R&B voice - smooth and sexy - and he has a great look too. Both songs are well produced, however that's not enough. Anoop needs to step it up a bit on the next one. Check out the fun video BELOW.
