– Craig David’s video for “Insomnia” dropped this weekend, and while I am still loving it, there is no new ground broken here. Can anyone say “Closer”?
– While we are talking about Davids, let’s talk about David Cook on Saturday Night Live last night. While I think he did a good job, it seemed like there were some serious nerves keeping him from putting his performances over the top. Single “Light On” was really the stronger of the two, but “Declaration” was a solid track as well. I’m concerned about the band, though. If this is the band that is going to back him up at all live events, I think he might be in for a bumpy ride. No video for the live performances, but that’s become normal for SNL. Here’s a video that contains that track of “Declaration”, followed by a rough video of “Light On”.
On the subject of David Cook videos, look for the premiere of “Light On” tomorrow morning on DavidCookOfficial.com. The video was shot two weeks ago at L.A. Valley College football field, and director Wayne Isham was behind the shoot. For those of you who might be curious, it appears that David and former American Idol contestant Kimberly Caldwell are still an item, as Caldwell was spotted hanging out with Cook on the set. [UPDATE: Here’s a sneak peak at the video…] [UPDATE #2: Here’s a link to the full-length video.]
What i don’t get is why the single is out and then the video comes several weeks later? Insanity! Or maybe the record company thinks, ah but the video will boost it way back up the charts now. I fear they may be mistaken and their marketing mismatch may cost the cookie a decent chart position.
not interested in Kim Caldwell at all. What a bad choice. Why his name is being marketed next to her is terrible.
Bad PR….very bad. Caldwell is one of the most annoying non talented losers ever from Idol.
Who knows, Paul. It has been a rough ride with the marketing.
Cynthia, I appreciate your concern, but I gather with Cook that he genuinely wanted to go out with her, and didn’t do it just for publicity.
I think Cynthia mean’t that his PR people should tell him to shut up. The girl is not well liked or respected. He is A list but will tankr to her D List level very soon.
Let’s start with his Light On sales, and now his 3rd place finish. Not exactly the best stats… I love how RCA is trying to put a spin on everything. He is in 7th place…behind other idols..
Caldwell is killing his credibility, Trust Me…
