Hot Video Alert: Belle Amie - Girls Up
As far as girl group singles go, "Girls Up" is fun. As a trio, Esther, Rebecca and Sophia hold their own vocally speaking, which I knew wouldn't be an issue. When watching them perform live on The X-Factor, there was no question that they were talented individuals, but there were shaky performances. At the same time, I'm no fool. I know how that there are a lot of...errrr....modifications that occur during the recording process. I knew that with the right producers, songwriters and creative team - Belle Amie could be a marketable girl group, it was just a matter of time. Well, seems like that time is now and I'm pretty happy with the results.
Each girl has her own unique personality that comes through in the video for "Girls Up," which while not ground breakingly original (how many 'dolls come to life' videos are there?) is still a lot of fun. While I'm not sure how far Belle Amie will go, "Girls Up" serves as a nice introduction and could be the basis for a long career in pop music. Let's just hope their label doesn't squander their talent, UK radio takes notice and fans of The X-Factor buy their music. Buy "Girls Up" on August 7th in the UK and look for remixes by DJ Q, JME, Soulshaker, The Squatters and TM.
