Hot Video Alert: Katy B - Movement
Six singles? Really Columbia? Don't get me wrong, I love me some Katy B but releases six singles off of one album? Completely unnecessary. I'm all for listening to an artist's entire debut album over and over again until their second album drops, but I don't need every single album track released as it's own single. That kind of seems like a waste of money on the label's part, doesn't it? Especially given the fact that the last single didn't even crack the top 100. Come on people. I'll say it again. COMPLETELY UNNECESSARY.
"Movement" is the sixth single to come off of Katy's debut album, On A Mission, which came out back in April. Produced and co-written by drum and bass/breakstep DJ Zinc, "Movement" is probably the least exciting single to come off the album, not to mention the least exciting corresponding video. Shot in Ibiza, the video basically chronicles Katy letting loose with her girlfriends in a beautiful, tropical setting. Beautiful scenery but blah everything else. It is nice seeing a more laid back, not-heavily made up Katy B but I'm going to just be honest. I'm ready for album #2. Download Katy's album on U.S. iTunes HERE.
In other more exciting Katy B news...get excited about a rumored Katy B/Mark Ronson Olympic collaboration. According to Katy in an interview with music.geeks.co.uk, Ronson traveled all over the world and sampled sounds made by various athletes doing athletic things...like swimming, archery arrows hitting targets, etc., "then he made the samples into drumkits." Wow. Very cool concept indeed. The single is expected to come out sometime in 2012 in advance of the London Olympic Games. Bring it on! Mark Ronson + Katy B surely will equal auditory genius.
