Mere days after teasing us about his future Eurovision plans, Russia’s Sergey Lazarev is back on our radar, as he releases the much anticipated music video for “Breaking Away”.

Scroll down for video

Looking every inch the action hero, the music video sees the pop prince do everything in his power to win back the woman of his dreams. He plays the piano, stares pensively and runs purposefully, but to little avail. Instead, the elusive lady leads him along a corridor and down some stairs, before coming to a halt at an artistically decorated fountain. There she teases the “You Are The Only One” singer with a series of seductive glances.

Sergey grabs her in a passionate embrace but, despite a palpable frisson between the pair, they never kiss. She runs off once again, this time to the sea. As Sergey follows her, we’re treated to shots of him singing passionately on the coastline and flashbacks of the pair in bed. The two board separate boats, resulting in a James Bond style chase. We then cut to the couple in bed once more, but there’s a twist. His lady friend is nothing but a memory. The video ends with a naked and despondent Sergey staring blankly into space. She doesn’t know what she’s missing out on!

Sergey Lazarev “Break Away” Official Music Video

And what of the song itself? “Breaking Away” has actually been around for quite some time, featuring on Sergey’s 2015 The Best collection. It’s an up-tempo pop number, not hugely different from his Eurovision effort. Lyrically, the track tells a message of hope and fulfilling one’s dreams — breaking away, we’re getting stronger every day… So now we spread our wings, we’re flying high, breaking away — which is slightly off kilter from the video’s theme of lost love. Nonetheless, this is a welcome helping of slickly produced feel-good man pop in a world of miserable Ed Sheerans and Justin Biebers. For that we’re thankful… along with the lasting shots of a topless musclebound Sergey in bed — don’t judge!

Sergey Lazarev — Breaking Away Lyrics

Another moment that I stopped to say you’re beautiful
So hold your breath, we’re gonna reach up to the sky
Another minute till we’re counting down to wonderful
And disappear beyond the clouds into the night
I will take you higher, where stars are shining brighter
If you’re scared then don’t look down
Rebel, you can be a rebel
Calling like an angel, see the world go round

Breaking away,
We’re getting stronger every day
No way on earth that we could ever say goodbye
So now we spread our wings, we’re flying high
Breaking away,
We’re getting stronger every day
We’re running wild into the night
No turning back, we gotta hold on, hold on tight
This time we’re gonna break away
We’re gonna break away

Another second till you’re standing right in front of me
Together we can make it high off the ground
Another reason to be flying to eternity
Don’t say a word, don’t say a word
Don’t make a sound
I will take you higher, where stars are shining brighter
If you’re scared then don’t look down
Rebel, you can be a rebel
Calling like an angel, see the world go round

Breaking away,
We’re getting stronger every day
No way on earth that we could ever say goodbye
So now we spread our wings, we’re flying high
Breaking away,
We’re getting stronger every day
We’re running wild into the night
No turning back, we gotta hold on, hold on tight
This time we’re gonna break away
We’re gonna break away

Hold on tight, hold on tight, hold on tight

Breaking away,
We’re getting stronger every day
We’re running wild into the night
No turning back, we gotta hold on, hold on tight
This time we’re gonna break away

In my opinion Sergey doesn`t kiss this actress because it`s artistic intention.

This is a wonderful video showing Lazarev, btw, as a good dramatical actor (have you seen him acting in theatre? I would advise you to use any opportunity to do it) besides that he is a really good singer. And he does what he wants. No more Eurovision for him of course=) Let somebody else go there.

I admit I have made many mistakes in the past mainly because I’m quite irritable but trust me, I do respect different opinions. Have a nice day and I hope that someday I will earn your respect because you have earned mine 🙂

You don’t talk politely I peoole on here unless they agree with you. There are loads of articles on here with you picking fights with other commenters. There is a bit of a pattern emerging I think. And I have the utmost respect for all of the commenters on this site, I always have. But respect is earned and some people on here (cough) have yet to earn it from me. Good day.

I talk politely to people who respect me. Unfortunately, you are not one of them. Please, be a little bit more friendly in the future and you will realize that most people will return the favor 🙂

And is it a must that Sergey kisses the girl? Probably he doesn’t do it besause the video is about an unfulfilled deam. I don’t think he just supported some definite community for that hell lot of monew her participation could have cost.

Haha “scums”? What even is that?

If you mean scum, well that just shows what an aggravating @sshole you actually are. I didn’t call you any names I simply asked why you are commenting on a Sergey article of you really don’t like him, but I think you have nerve trouble or something because you completely went on the defensive. I hope you learn some manners and basic conversational skills, because you cannot have a normal conversation without going crazy or getting abusive

I’m not here in order to insult people, unlike others (*cough* *cough*).

You could have ignored my comment and gone on. But what did you do? You responded with a disdainful comment in order to irritate me.

Anyway, the “discussion” ends here. I don’t like talking to scums like you. Leave me alone and go on with your poor life.

I don’t dislike you, but you do just come on this site to aggravate other users. It’s obvious.
Pulling me up on my spelling is really mature “Mr Know-it-all” I guess you don’t make one spelling mistake. But anyway, I’m not here to talk to kids, you only come on here to p!ss people off anyway. Take care xo

@Darren, my version of ‘why no kiss’ is in my previous comment below. Just a speculation though based on people’s comments on her Instagram account

“If you really dislike home”

What? That makes no sense.

If you mean that I dislike Sergey, then you are totally wrong. I don’t dislike him but it’s really tiring and unfair to read so many articles about him and absolutely nothing about other participants.

I just wanted to express my opinion, is there a problem, mr know-it-all?

I am going to second you and say: if you really dislike me and my comment, why did you go to all of the effort of replying to me? Just to give out?
#AttentionSeekingMuch? 😉

If you really dislike home that much and think he is boring, why did you go to all of the effort of clicking on the article, scrolling to the bottom, just to give out? #AttentionSeekingMuch?

Anyway, returning to topic, I wonder why Sergey never kissed the girl? Hmmmm 😉 it’s better than My Only One though, but I knew he had the potential for that anyway.

Well, there is a rumour on social media that Toni, the actress, is trans and was born with a different gender officially assigned to her. Just wondering whether the choice of her is Sergey’s gesture of support for the community and actually there is s deeper meaning in what seemed to be a light pop on the surface? Just wondering…
