Enrique Iglesias and DEV Release Video for Song Collab “Naked”.
It seems like all the big hit artists these days are really into cross pollination, you know, collaborating with as many other popular or soon to be popular artists as possible, and one of Las Gringas’ favorite, Enrique Iglesias is no exception. He has a whole variety tray of recent collabs from his Euphoria album including WyY, Usher, Akon, Nicole Scherzinger, and claro, Pitbull. The most current single floating around is “Naked” with indie-pop singer DEV, and now we’ve got a Las Vegas themed video to go with it.
DEV originally got recognition after being sampled in the nonsensical but mercilessly catchy Far East Movement hit “Like A G6“. Or maybe you know her from her single “In The Dark” from her current album The Night The Sun Came Up (released March 26th, 2012) that gave us the irritating “sex drive…push to start” line of lyrical genius. Regardless, it looks like “Naked” with the added star power of Enrique may be the best her album has to offer because it actually, sort of…if you listen really hard, has a good message. I think its saying follow your heart, be with someone you can be yourself around, don’t worry about living up to other people’s standards…
IF that’s the case then the Las Vegas setting is kind of appropriate. The city of sin, where everything is artifice and show! And then you have these two people wandering around (rather depressed looking…especially for being in Vegas) surrounded by crowds but they’re not really into it. I don’t know, maybe I’m reading a little too much into this. Maybe the song is just about a one night stand, and they wanted to shoot the video in Vegas because its sexy. Check out it out below and see what you think.

This video is packed with product placement! Check it: CK beauty products (maybe DEV is a rep?) Planet Hollywood, Atlantico Rum (Enrique is definitely a rep). Product placement in music videos always amuses me.
