This track is receiving heavy rotation on MTV Base, at number 3 on the Base chart, and is labelled as being one of the biggest tracks out now.
‘Heartbroken’ is a catchy track. It takes me back to 1999/2000 when Garage Music was at it’s peak and people were flying out to Ayia Napa in their droves, eager to get their grooves on.
The video: I like it, its simple, it wasn’t filmed on a council estate and you can see they invested a few pounds into the project.
Oh and of course no UK black music video would be complete with out the incredibly light skinned/Causcian love interest, or in this particular case the “other woman”.
This seems to be the current trend here…. if you’re a dark skinned model/actress, with 100% African features and beautiful, then don’t bother auditioning for roles as the love interest/leading lady in UK black music videos. There’s no point. They don’t want you! Your nose is a tad bit wide, your lips are too big – Your face doesn’t fit.
But for the background scenary… you’ll do!
Take yourselves off to the US where video directors and artists actually seem to appreciate the many different shades/features of the black woman!
