The All American Rejects new video for “The Beekeeper’s Daughter” is less of a fail than their moniker would have you expect. The video is an all singing, all dancing extravaganza; there’s impromptu synchronized dances in the street, explosions of color and a whole lot of sex appeal. The poppy beat will almost make you forget that the song is about an inability to commit to a relationship and have you dancing instead, much like the girls in the video. “The Beekeeper’s Daughter” is The All American Rejects’ first single off the album Kids In The Street, and while it’s not much of a romantic track, it’s definitely a fun one. We’re really loving the joy of the video — especially the final scenes where the band is playing on a parade float, a giant inflatable bee buzzing above the celebrations!
If you’re looking for your daily dose of goosebumps then look no further than You Oughta Know artist Gotye performing “Somebody That I Used To Know” with Kimbra on Jimmy Kimmel Live. With both artists singing just as powerfully and flawlessly as they do on record, it’s no wonder the crowd in the theatre didn’t seem to know whether to cheer or watch in reverent silence. Now that we’ve addressed the massive talent that is undoubtedly about to take America by storm, let’s talk about Kimbra’s dress — where do we get one? The singer’s sparkling cocktail dress spoke to old Hollywood glamor with an avant garde edge, which resonated perfectly with “Somebody That I Used To Know,” a song that is bolstered by its references but propelled forward by small, nuanced innovations. We’re looking forward to having the spine tingling pair at VH1 headquarters this week, so stay tuned for all the Gotye and Kimbra action as it unfolds for You Oughta Know!
