A few new hits in today’s chart.
Lewis Capaldi – Grace
It’s a bit saccharine and slow for me, but it’s quite a nice tune.
The video is brilliant! It’s about Lewis Capaldi covering a job shift for his poledancer friend who’s got a bad knee. Not at all NSFW – it’s completely hilarious.
NSG and Tion Wayne – Options
The backing track’s quite nice and upbeat, with some retro-sounding lines, but the vocal’s pretty dull.
The video is a split-screen headache of dancing around in expensive cars and expensive trainers and ludicrously blingy watches.
Chris Brown – Undecided
Another classic song, in this case Shanice’s I Love Your Smile, ruined by a misplaced sample in a boring modern track. It’s just really bland and insipid.
The video at least has an actual story though, with Chris Brown breaking into an abandoned fairground where a ghost balloon takes him back to the past to dance with his (ex? dead?) girlfriend.
Headie One and Dave – 18 Hunna
It’s extremely repetitive, with no melody.
There’s some occasional nice arty touches in the black and white video, but on the whole it’s a bit brand-flashy and wealth-braggy for my liking.
