David Archuleta is “Movin'” and Groovin’ in New Music Video
The majority of the video is based around Archuleta and his background dancers as they do some synchronized choreography to the song. When he is not seen dancing with others, he’s seen alone lip-synching.
This video honestly gives me fresh off of a talent show vibe. It seems like he’s trying to revive his career in the new era of singers that also dance. The only way I can describe Archuleta in his video is Bruno Mars in his 24K Magic album era, but with choreographed dancing.
Don’t get me wrong, this new groove looks great on Archuleta. If you loved him before this, you’ll love him even more after seeing this video.
There are a few things that Archuleta deserves snaps and claps about when it comes to this video.
First, he kept the number of dancer in the video to four people. It’s possible the amount of dancers is only for the vibe he’s going for, but it could very well be in relation to the on-going pandemic. This video seems so empty because he has such a small amount of people in it with him, but we can appreciate him for being cautious with the Delta variant cases rising.
Second, Archuleta made sure to give credit to every person who was on set for this video. Not only did he spell out the departments within the YouTube description, but he also included them on in a pinned comment his Instagram post.
“Movin’ After Hours”
Remember how Archuleta announced that he was premiering something special on Instagram? It turns out one version of this song was not enough for him. He released another version of this song. These songs are so similar that it’s hard to really know what’s different other than the techno beat of the song.
The “After Hours” version of this song contains a more laid back approach to the song as a whole. Although the term after hours may make some think this tune is acoustic, it’s far from that. Archuleta’s vocals are lifted more above the music in this version, creating an angelic emphasis on his voice. Many fans said it has an 80’s groove which makes differ from the original.
Archuleta has since asked his fans which groove they’re moving to more in a recent Instagram post. Although a lot of fans have individual opinions on which songs are their fave, the general conscientious is that the original is a daytime version of the song whereas the after hours is the nighttime version of the song.
