BEST NEW VIDEOS: LIZ “WHEN I RULE THE WORLD”
Sorry PC Musicians, but if your name is not SOPHIE, you’re shipping an inferior product... as the virtuoso producer proves once again with his beat on the insanely catchy new LIZ tune, “When I Rule the World.” The video ain’t half bad either.
Like the lovechild of Charli XCX and pre-Capitol Liz Phair on meth, “When I Rule the World” is all bombast and pop goodness. SOPHIE’s sensationally trippy beat gets you hooked from the get go, but it’s LIZ's attitude that makes the song work so well. And her swagger transfers over to the video too, a splendid send up of 90’s teen pop princesses. The whole thing looks and feels like a highly suggestive Old Navy ad mixed with a Bop It commercial.
What’s so great about “When I Rule the World” is that, unlike most songs in this genre, it's an actual song. This isn’t just some marginal pop song sped up with chipmunk effects, it’s a quirky, lively ear worm that’ll burrow its way into your very soul.
Well maybe it’s not all that, but it’s a hell of a way to pass three minutes. Check it out below:
