In our previous post, we boldly declared that XLR8 will give SS501, Super Junior, Big Bang and other Korean boybands a run for their money. What prompted us to make such strong statement was based solely in their vocals. Back then we only heard their debut single “You’re So Hot” and that was it.
Last Saturday, XLR8’s “You’re So Hot” music video debuted on MYX Premier. Shot at Lazer Xtreme in Manila, we’ve seen the 8 boys namely Francis Ramos, Carlo Lazerna, Hideaki Torio, Caleb Santos, Arkin Del Rosario, Melmar Magno, Meljohn Magno and Adrian Muhlach showcased their talents. Although they looked too young compared to other Korean boybands, their vocals were better naman. And I must say, their voices are as good as their looks. They are a complete package and they indeed have the potential to revive Pinoy pop!
However, there’s one thing they need to improve in the music video – the dance step. It lacks intensity. They are not hitting the beat as hard as what we’ve seen in their rehearsals (as seen in their dance teaser video). Maybe it’s because of the limited space inside Lazer Extreme Manila where the video was shot.
Overall, pasado naman ang concept ng music video. It has all the ingredients to be sensational. If they can improve the dance routine then we may see the “swagger” that we are looking for.
Watch the music video below and you may share your thoughts afterwards.
