5 August 2010

So far David Archuleta’s “Something ‘Bout Love,” the first single from his upcoming The Other Side of Down album, is an overlooked pop gem. It just debuted this past week at #4 on the Bubbling Under the Hot 100 chart. The music video to accompany the song was released today, and the spirit of the clip matches the song perfectly. David Archuleta appears and sings as love is working its magic through the crowd around him. The success of “Something ‘Bout Love” and The Other Side of Down will likely play a role in determining whether or not David Archuleta has staying power as a mainstream pop artist.

David Archuleta has released the video to “Something ‘Bout Love,” the first single off his upcoming third album “Other Side of Down.” The clip finds the ‘Idol’ runner-up walking around a city before stumbling upon a gorgeously lit apartment party. “Hang on, hang in, for the ride of your life,” Archuleta croons with clenched fists. The slow-motion shots nicely capture the romantic vibe of the track, and Archuleta makes for a compelling pop presence.

David Archuleta’s Chords of Strength, Chapter 9, “The Joy in Sound,” Summary and Commentary
by Goldstar for Archuleta Fanscene

I had to cover some of it, but if you can’t remember what he said, it’s time to view it again! (Small echo of “Something ‘Bout Love” there, LOL.)”
