Elen Levon unveiled her "Like A Girl In Love" video clip this afternoon and it's a big step up from "Naughty". Filmed on location in Cambodia, the moody visual plays like a PG version of Rihanna's "We Found Love" - you know... without the sex, drugs and nudity! The 17-year-old is shown cavorting (fully clothed) in the bedroom with her boyfriend, before roaming around the Asian wilderness on the back of a truck. I particularly love the beautifully filmed scene on the world's shabbiest ferris wheel. It's apparent her label was going for an edgier, more adult style while staying age-appropriate and it works. She looks gorgeous - the American flag outfit is hot - and the exotic location makes it unusually atmospheric. My only complaints are the slow beginning and lack of choreography. Elen can dance like a demon, it would have been nice to see a Janet Jackson-esque solo routine. Anyway, it's a huge step forward. A great clip for an even better song.
