Natalie La Rose Taps Jeremih for ‘Somebody’ Video
Raunchy videos are nothing new, but it's nice to see a visual that steers away from the scantily-clad ladies yet is still pleasing to the eye. Singer Natalie La Rose delivers just that with her video for "Somebody."
The Jeremih-assisted song draws inspiration from the Whitney Houston classic "I Wanna Dance With Somebody," and gives it a nice updated twist. In the clip, Natalie hits some tight choreography while brushing off the hate she receives. "Walking everybody knows what's good / But some gonna hate, what's new? / We just do our thing, no time to waste / Always playing cool," she sings.
The setting appears to be a college campus, as the Amsterdam-born singer grooves in front of a dorm building and other eye-grabbing architecture. Director Luke Gilford also uses pops of colors in each scene, giving the visuals a nice warm texture. Jeremih and Flo Rida make an appearance, but both artists play the background and let the R&B songbird do her thing.
The "Somebody" video has already scored over 1.4 million views on YouTube. Not to mention, the song has been streamed on Spotify nearly 3 million times.
Watch Natalie, who's signed to Flo Rida's I.M.G and Republic Records, bust a move.
