Back in May, Helena Paparizou plugged her latest track “Don’t Hold Back on Love” on The Voice, the Greek version of the popular TV talent show. Now the single and video are properly out, and it is a real pop banger. It has rhythm and drive, and a catchy melody you won’t forget. The relatively calm verses build nicely to a thumping chorus, giving you just enough time to catch your breath before it’s time to bust a move. This is hot.

Jimmy Jansson has penned a single that works well for Helena. Jansson, a Swedish popstar who has had several unsuccessful attempts at Melodifestivalen, has found the right vessel for his work in Miss Paparizou. Visually she goes sci-fi and futuristic, and she honours her Greek heritage by working with director Alexandros Grammatopoulos. Her grand prix-esque race in a sports car is given a fashion edge with a metallic outfit, and some killer shades. Is Helena about to slay? YESS!!! It’s enough to make me overlook the random rollercoasters, lollipops, sunsets and a galaxy of stars.

DON’T HOLD BACK ON LOVE LYRICS — Helena Paparizou

Tonight
I’m gonna hold my breath
I see the light
Over the edge
There’s something, I feel it and it’s in the air now
I hear the clock and it’s ticking and it’s getting so loud
(ooh oh oh oh yeah)

Let’s don’t hold back
Don’t hold back on love
Don’t hold back, what we need more of
We can shine through the night
Up to the satellites
Let’s don’t
Hold back on love

It’s time
So take my hand
You’re heart in mine
The promise land
Oh pour gasoline make the flame get higher
Oh make me believe in love and desire

Let’s don’t hold back
Don’t hold back on love
Don’t hold back, what we need more of
We can shine through the night
Up to the satellites
Let’s don’t
Hold back on love

La, la la, la la la la la la
(ooh oh oh oh yeah)

This is a visual wonder and at first glance it looks like a more meaningful and universal version of her 2008 single Pirotehnimata. So beautiful, dreamlike and ethereal – it’s pure eyecandy…with a very nice message. I have already watched it countless times and I have safely concluded that it is my favorite video of hers to date! Totally loving the brilliant photography (it’s stunning throughout the video – the black and white-green contrast looks very cinematic and sets the mood from the very beginning), the dreamy landscapes inserts, Helena’s expressions while seated in the car, her beautiful moves while… Read more »

Guys what kind of music klip do you expect from Helena when artists like Beyonce, Shakira, Rihanna, Madonna etc. also filming cheap music clips. When was the last time that you saw a music clip and said ” WOW, what a production” This clip lacks of originality and this is a problem of the stage director.

I love this song, it’s so good but the music video looks cheap 🙁 kinda surprising to see from an artist like Helena!

Anyway, her latest album “One Life” is pop perfection, check it out on iTunes and Spotify.

if she wants to be on top in Greece she cant afford music videos like this
hope she will find other people to work on her music videos

ChArleSSHOLE? ChArleSSHOLE where are you ? Won’t you once again express your repulsion about her and her songs? (Or her music clips?)

Let me guess. You always expect someone else to comment so you won’t show that you are obsessive with her.
