Remember the girl band Blush? They got their new album now! The first video from ascendant, pan-Asian girl group, Blush, receives its world premiere on Channel V July 1, as the channel launches its new HD service in selected regions.
The video is for the group’s first single, ‘Undivided’, which has already reached no. 47 on the Hot Dance Club Play Billboard chart. The song was co-written by hip-hop icon Snoop Dogg, who features on the track. Some of the biggest names on the club scene, Alex Gaudino, Morgan Page, Sander Kleinenberg, Manny Marroquin, Chew Fu, Eddie Amador and Wolverine (aka Junkie XL) have released club remixes of ‘Undivided’. Snoop Dogg also appears in the video, which was filmed in Los Angeles and directed by Taylor Cohen (winner of the Breakthrough Video Award at the MTV VMAs 2009).
‘Undivided’ can be heard online at Blush’s website www.blushband.com, on Blush’s facebook page www.facebook.com/blushgroup and is available on iTunes.
Blush highlights Asia’s diversity and talent. The five members represent China (Victoria Chan), India (Alisha Budhrani), Japan (Natsuko Danjo), Korea (Ji Hae Lee) and the Philippines (Angeli Flores). ‘Undivided’ is sung in English but concludes with the refrain sung in Mandarin, Korean, Japanese, Tagalog and Hindi. The group, which came together as the result of the Project Lotus talent search, leaves for the US next week, where they will be making a series of high profile appearances, including a showcase performance on top-rated TV show, ‘So You Think You Can Dance?’ (July 21th).
‘Undivided’, released on the FarWest Entertainment label, was recorded at Avon Studios in Hong Kong with Steve Schnur (Grammy Foundation Chair Emeritus) and Darrell Brown as co-producers. Snoop Dogg recorded his vocals in LA in March.
