Monday was a good day for music lovers as No Doubt and Madonna released two new music videos almost at the same time. As everyone would expect, No Doubt’s first single in a decade “Settle Down” has drawn all the media and the public’s attention, so there wasn’t much left for Madonna. We hope that won’t make her cry in her future concerts.
At first, I was reluctant to listen to No Doubt’s new song, but I eventually pushed the play button for it was either this or work. Strangely enough, I was seized by an indescribable sensation. Flies hit my two-inch thick bug-eyed glasses as I ran after my colleagues and tried to get my sandwich back. Then, it struck me. The first vision of “Settle Down” has brought me flashbacks from the 90s and made me feel young again. Sadly, by the end of the music video it was only Gwen Stefani who was still young.
Judging by the looks of the video, Gwen Stefani, Tony Kanal on bass, guitarist Tom Dumont, and drummer Adrian Young have all preserved their initial style. At the beginning, they are shown driving their own trucks towards a meeting point where they have a secret party. The song has been well-received by fans as it has become Nr. 7 on iTunes’ Pop 100 chart within hours from its release.
“Settle Down” is the first single from No Doubt’s first album named “Push and Shove”. The record has been prepared for almost two years, so the bandmates are happy they will be able to place it on the market this month. Their first concerts as a band will be held on July 26 and July 27.
As for Madonna, her new single is called “Turn Up the Radio” and that is precisely what people should do: listen to her song on the radio because the video is just as uninspired as the previous ones.
