Cheryl – “Under The Sun” Music Video

Cheryl’s music video for Under The Sun premiered today on her official VEVO. Under The Sun is the second single to be taken from Cheryl’s third album, A Million lights.

Under The Sun’s video is reminiscent of Girls Aloud’s The Promise with it’s 60’s theme. The video isn’t at all what I expected it to be like. Nothing really happens in it except Cheryl walking around a diner and the streets with guys checking her out. For a song called Under The Sun, the video doesn’t have much sun in it. Cheryl breaks into a dance routine for the second pre-chorus and chorus where it turns to night time and begins to rain. Cheryl then returns to looking pretty in the diner.

Overall it’s a decent video but it’s just a bit boring compared to the highly energetic Call My Name video. Cheryl’s nice to look at though.

You can watch the video for Under The Sun below:

Under The Sun will be released on September 3rd through Polydor.

Cheryl – “Call My Name” Video Premiere

Published May 02nd 2012

The video for Cheryl’s new single Call My Name premiered today on her official VEVO channel. The video was shot in downtown Los Angeles and shows Cheryl dancing with a group of dancers and in a tunnel. There’s not many scenes in the video. The only other main scene is Cheryl driving at night.

While there’s not much of a storyline, the video looks really well. The dance routine fits the song perfect and has little homages to the routine for Fight For This Love. The video really emphasises just how big this song is going to be.

Call My Name is out June 10th followed by the album A Million Lights on June 18th.

Cheryl Cole – “Messy Little Raindrops” Details

Cheryl Cole’s team sent out a newsletter today with details of her upcoming album, Messy Little Raindrops. It’s an eleven track album again, featuring three duets with Travie McCoy, August Rigo and Dizzee Rascal. Everybody, Everyone was described in the newsletter as a “sure-fire hit” and a “killer collaboration with the one and only Dizzee Rascal“, so we can assume it will be the third single following Promise This and The Flood. The album cover and list of producers are yet to be revealed.

The track listing as announced in the newsletter:

01. Promise This
02. The Flood
03. Yeah Yeah (feat. Travie McCoy)
04. Better To Lie (feat. August Rigo)
05. Everybody, Everyone (feat. Dizzee Rascal)
06. Raindrops
07. Cold Heart
08. Hummingbird
09. Amnesia
10. Happy Tears
11. Waiting

One thing about the track titles which stands out immediately is the fact that a lot of the titles are similar to recent songs by other artists. The Promise by Girls Aloud, The Flood by Take That, Hummingbird Heartbeat by Katy Perry, Amnesia by Britney Spears and Waiting by Girls Aloud. This is either a coincidence or else Cheryl’s lyrical inspiration for a number of tracks is heavily influenced by other artists’ ideas.

Messy Little Raindrops is released November 1st through Fascination Records.

Cheryl Cole – “Promise This” Music Video

Cheryl Cole’s music video for Promise This, the lead single from her upcoming album Messy Little Raindrops, premiered last night after The Xtra Factor.

The video keeps a similar theme to the 3 Words era, but also fits the song perfectly. While the song is uptempo, lyrically it’s quite dark and the video enforces this very well.
