Let’s state the obvious with this video, it really needed Cee-Lo and B.o.B in it. It comes off as cheap without them in there due to them both contributing heavily to this hit song. The video has some splices of Bruno playing various instruments for different shots and is well done but lacks cohesion with the message of the tune. As for the song, if you haven’t heard it yet it seems to be almost an assured smash. The only thing I see possibly hindering it is an overkill of B.o.B and Bruno collaborations due to “Nothing On You” but I still think the different vibe on this one will make it unique enough for fans to like it. “The Other Side” is certainly a pop hit but the catchy chorus always gets me and it is hard to deny it.
Almost everyone I have talked to about this song, in the industry and outside of it, has agreed that this song is smash and will be all over your radio speakers this summer. I still have no idea who Bruno Mars is but I do know that he is the perfect style of singer for this chorus and adds the perfect amount of pop and radio friendliness to the song. The video itself is original with the torn paper look (for lack of a better description) and the shot where pieces of different girls faces come together also plays well to the theme of the track. The Great Adventures of Bobby Ray drops on April 27th so be sure to cop it.
