"Not Giving Up On Love" video premiere

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nh5R6VBn63E

It's a bit random, but hey, its okay. Sophie looks amazing. The club bits were unnecessary, but still, it's a decent video. Nothing spectacular. Sophie looks amazing though. Worth watching only for that. Oh and boat - very Dannii Minogue

why has there been no campaign for this track? Unless you are an avid SEB or Armin fan, you wont know that there is a song being released on Friday :S. And, honestly, Armin isnt a big name here in the UK

@Craig - I don't know why there's no promo for the song. I guess Armada are relying only on Armin's fanbase for this. Majority of Sophie's fans are unaware about the release. They will probably come across the video and the song on blogs such as these and decide to buy the track.

Fortunately, we are getting a CD Maxi and not just iTunes donwloads.

I thought the boat scenes where the best. She looked absolutely fantastic. I just wish that the song was longer.

Oh, the vid's out already=?

Hmm.. I agree totally Kau, it's a quite random group of clips put together. Nothing special, but Sophie looks rather good in some of the clips, and I like her outfits, too. :)

But yeah, this is after all mainly an Armin van Buuren release, so no wonder the vid ain't any more special than this, atleast when it comes to Sophie. A bit weird though, if they had cut the club scenes out and tried something different with the existing ones, this could have turned out a bit more stylish and perhaps a lot more solid. Now it just feels like a promo video with no intent to make it to the top10 anywhere.

But I'm very very glad about the maxi-single, already ordered it from armadamusicshop.com. So, this time we got the opposite of Bittersweet: Mediocore video, but decent physical release. :) And there's no telling about how this'll make in the radio, but it's always better than nothing. :]

I think the video makes the song better. I'm really impressed with all the outfits Sophie's wearing. They all look fantastic. It proofs again how stylish she is without being trashy. The clip reminds me of Music Gets the Best of Me, though that song was better than this. Also, the red scarf reminds me of Move This Mountain. I thought it was a nice detail. Overall, it is a nice video, but not that original. With Sophie Muller involved, I was hoping for a story line.

I don't know how well the song'll do, but like a lot of her singles the promo and timing is rather messed up. I'm still a Sophie fan, but I'm sure not a Armin fan.

I actually liked the video , it was done very artistically and the scenes made a lot of sense if you think about it : It's a summer anthem hence Sophie at the pool and on the boat and it's also a club anthem hence the scenes from Amnesia. I wouldn't call it random at all , just stylish ;)

I don't like much the scenes in the club... seems like those videos that make with scenes of concerts, as when they not have money to make a good video. If Sophie Muller wanted scenes in a club, she would have made a simulation in the house of Armin: he on the decks and a lot of excited people there, Sophie goes with her melancholy face, they look at themselves and smile. I think something like that...

The scenes of Sophie are AMAZING, her movements, her face, she has the best expressions in this world, is fantastic!

Although I notice that the movement of her mouth goes a little slow with the song in the video, has anyone else noticed that?

Anyway... is already done, I enjoy only those scenes of Sophie :)

out of topic but worth mentioning:

chart update:
CFTF topped the chart and took over the #1 place on www.nrjlebanon.com, but now it's at #3, but you can see that peak position was #1.woohoooo

Have you watched the rest of Armin's videos!? My god i couldn't sit through even half of them. For an Armin fan, this video is like a breath of fresh air. It is his best video ever.

But, for us Sophie fans, this is very much below average. Especially after videos like CY, TTSOU, Bittersweet etc., this seems so silly.

That said, i think Sophie looks gorgeous in this video. I love her hair being pinned up like that. I wish she uses that hairstyle again in some video. I think she looks really hot like that.

...and @Eden - thanks. I'm going to keep this trend going. With every new video, i'll have a new layout.

I agree with you, guys, the video is an "OK" video. But she's so stylish that it's awesome to see her. And JUST BECAUSE OF THIS I'm wearing my red lip gloss tomorrow. She's so inspiring!! :)

Fran said...

Just pre-order a copy of the CD Maxi!! :-) I'm so happy!! Hope Sophie & Armin have success with this song, cos' it's amazing, & Sophie well deserves that!! :D x
