Just last month, Jessica Mauboy released a new video clip for ‘Can I Get a Moment?’ under Sony Australia. The song hit #1 on iTunes after the debut performance on X Factor, and it’s easy to see why.
The songwriter, Kenny Edmonds is behind the success of such artists as Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey and Ariana Grande. Jessica clearly owns ‘Can I Get a Moment?’ with confident delivery and a stellar vocal performance.
This upbeat track has a big-band feel, with a few jazz instruments to brighten the sound. Fittingly, the film clip looks like a 70s band performance with the men donning purple suits and the celebration of afros.
There are unexplained billowing sheets in the background of clips that I’m hoping is a parody. If not, then someone needs to talk to special effects guy. However, the film clip should win an award for being so racially diverse and for only showing tasteful dancing.
Maybe, if the close-ups of Jess weren’t so close-up, the video would be pretty great because it really plays up the sassiness of its pop-star. We hope the rest of the album is just as good!
