Marija Serifovic has taken to the streets and sights of Stockholm in the music video for her new single “Mrs”. We’ll take this over a Lonely Planet video any day of the week!
The 2007 winner’s new single is a far cry from the sounds of “Molitva” and follows the general change in her sound she’s been cultivating over the past couple of months, following on from previous single “Ja volim svoj greh“.
In this case, it’s not really a sound that suits her. The song itself is probably best described as “Jamiroquai-esque”, with an attempt of making a catchy chorus earworm through the repetition of “Mrs”. But this Mrs. is not a “Gentleman” – it just all feels a little bit too forced and Marija’s natural talent struggles to shine through.
Also, we strongly suspect that Marija got paid to do this video by the Stockholm tourist board. From the random selfies to the repeated shots of attractive Swedish women, it all just feels a little bit forced. There’s no rhyme or reason to anything here and it ultimately just leaves you feeling disappointed.
“Mrs” is not a bad song by any means, but it’s not Serifovic’s best effort… and that’s what makes it stand out. For someone who very rarely misfires, it makes it all the more obvious when she does.
