This is not an “Advertising Space” for Robbie William’s latest track, “Party Like A Russian”, taken from his 11th studio album, “Heavy Entertainment Show”.
Earlier today (Friday, 30th September), the veteran singer dropped the music video for his latest single via Facebook and it is elegant af!
“Party Like A Russian” is described as one of William’s quirkiest songs an it is “an audacious, tongue-in-cheek take-down of Russian president Vladimir Putin and his friends”. In an exclusive interview with The Sun, the “She’s The One” singer claimed that he might offend the Russians with his new song, adding that he had to censor the song to avoid becoming a target in Russia.
“I had to chisel and whittle at the lyrics. There’s 147million people in Russia and I don’t want to upset them in any way and I don’t know what kind of sense of humour they’ve got. I’m not making fun of anybody but I had to take a few things out just to make it more PC (parental control) — and this is the PC version you’re getting,” said the 42-year-old musician.
The music video features Williams being surrounded by 2 types of ballerina – one rogue and wild (dressed in black); one poise and sophisticated (dressed in white). It’s only fitting to feature ballerinas in the video, as ballet is symbolic in Russia.
In just 5 hours of its release, the video has been viewed 1.2 million times!
