(Video) The Wanted - Glad You Came
What better way to show you're a cool, trendy boyband than a video for a new single where said band goes and lives it up in the clubbing capital of the world?
Yes, that's right - for The Wanted's new track Glad You Came (resists innuendo laden joke), they're going to Ibiza! (resists singing the Vengaboys song).
There's a real LADS on a night out feel here, with lots of hot girls dancing around the boys (we imagine all The Wanted fans will be massively jealous of these girls right now) and there's even lasers! Actual lasers!
In many ways, Glad You Came is a kind of male version of J Lo's On The Floor, channelling that same glorious strain of EuroDance. It's also a very natural evolution from Gold Forever and you can easily imagine the two tracks sitting side by side on the band's forthcoming second album. That said, I don't think it's quite up there with Gold Forever (still my favourite The Wanted track), but a good record nonetheless.
Glad You Came is released on the 10th July.
