Tom Hanks. Not your usual music video star. At least until now! The A-List actor has just landed himself a role in Carly Rae Jepsen’s video and it’s part of Premiere One PR’s ‘Must Listen List.’ Also joining the list this week are The Script and Maverick Sabre featuring Joey Bada$$. Don’t say we never spoil you!
1. Carly Rae Jepsen “I Really Like You”
Last time we heard from Carly Rae Jepsen she was asking us to call her, maybe? Well now she’s back with something else to tell us. “I Really Like You” is her brand new single and to make sure we get talking about it she’s only gone and enlisted Tom Hanks for the video! That’s right! Tom Hanks! The whole video is lip synced by Tom as he makes his way down the street meeting fans and eventually joining Jepsen for a bit of a dance. It’s really cute and full of the best kind of cheesy pop we all love. P.S Watch out for Justin Bieber towards the end.
2. The Script ‘Man On A Wire’
The Script rise to dizzying new heights for their latest video ‘Man On A Wire.’ We see frontman Danny O’Donoghue as said man trying to reach his beloved while bandmates Glen and Mark perform on a rooftop and the side of a building. The single is taken from the Irish lads’ fourth studio album ‘No Sound Without Silence’ and hears the groups signature anthemic sound pouring out once again.
3. Maverick Sabre feat Joey Bada$$ ‘We Don’t Wanna Be’
Maverick Sabre and Joey Bada$$ have teamed up for a track which Sabre describes as “…an anti-oppression, anti-systematic song—a voice for what’s going on in our world in the current climate, which we are all living and dealing with daily.” The video, shot in black and white, shows clips of protests, marches and Joey and Maverick spitting their empowering lyrics about unity. It’s definitely one to watch!
