“Everybody Wants You,” Johnny Orlando‘s mountainous new single, shares 75 p.c of a repute with “Everybody Here Wants You,” an immortal, silken entry in ’90s alt-crooner Jeff Buckley’s all too transient, staggeringly gorgeous profession. The songs don’t sound much alike, but seeing the title of Orlando’s blown up in bleeding purple textual convey material at the entrance of his new video effect me in a Buckley mindset; the mood rapid adopted.
While Buckley’s tune leaves an unmistakeable R&B footprint, Orlando channels extra up to the moment bedroom pop, imbuing his most modern decrease with lo-fi rhythm chops that yield to a booming stadium refrain. Within the cinematic new video, directed by Alex P. Smith, Orlando is the star, embodying a dusk romantic vibe as he drives round his metropolis and tries to absorb the final little bit of a summer eve.
Orlando, a 17-year-mature Toronto abilities and Juno nominee, belongs in an pretty class alongside fellow DiCaprio-circa-Powerful heart-half Gen Z heartthrobs Greyson Likelihood and Ruel — and, come to concentrate on it, Buckley will most likely be a stylistic spiritual Gen X godfather — even though his sound is extra within the vein of fellow Canadian Shawn Mendes, if extra outright pop-leaning.
The “Everybody Wants You” video arrives merely as Orlando begins his senior year of high college, and he marked the event on Instagram.
