Is This The Biggest Mess Of 2012?


Romanian pop legend Inna has a new song called "INNdiA". Is she for real? I can't even fathom the tackiness of this mess! For starters, she looks like Michael Jackson on the single cover and the scintillating anthem begins with the line "welcome to INNdiA". It just gets worse from there. Sure, there is something magical about the so-bad-they're-breathtaking lyrics ("oh la la la la I hear you calling INNdiA") and the cheap Eurotrash production but I expect better from her. Inna is a pan-European pop sensation with a string of top 10 hits across the continent.

I love both of the dance diva's albums but if this is a taste of her third long-player, I'm gonna have to smoke a lot of pot to enjoy it. The video (below) is just as mesmerisingly awful as the song. The stunning beauty plays a stripper who saves a fellow pole dancer from abuse and then drags her to a high class lesbian club. It's the Eastern European music video equivalent of Showgirls. Actually, when I think about it like that, "INNdiA" becomes infinitely more appealing. So what's the verdict? Is this a trash triumph or tacky turkey? I'm more torn than Natalie Imbruglia...

Cover art is hilariously bad. Video is... better left unwatched. But I find the song to be decently catchy. She could've done worse.

Better than Kelly Rowlands last album tbh.

I thought the album cover might mark a move away from the Boobage Maximus Inna of old, but the video would show that that isn't the case.

Full disclosure: Inna is my Romanian princess and can do wrong in my eyes whatsoever, but considering she can actually sing, has sold a fair amount of records and has videos on heavy rotation, I thought she'd be branching out a bit more then this.

Loyalty is admirable, but I think she's gone as far as she can go with Play and Win. There surely must be other producers she can be working with*.


*Not that arsewit Guetta, mind.

I don't think the song is that awful either if you ignore the lyrics but she can do so much better.

I agree that she needs to work with new people ASAP!
