Cody Simpson Releases Surfboard Video

(Radio.com) Cody Simpson may have been eliminated on Dancing with the Stars this week, but the Australian singer isn't bumming too hard; after all, he has a new music video out.

Monday night (April 14), the pop star revealed the clip for "Surfboard," Simpson's newest single. With a name like that, one might expect the breezy, sunny pop Simpson is usually accustomed to dispensing, but the song's neither that nor a Beyonce reference and the video reflects the new approach.

"Surfboard" starts with quickly strummed electric guitar before breaking into a comparatively slow hip-hop beat, acoustic guitar wafting gingerly in the background. There's even a breakdown featuring more of an electro beat and catchy whistling.

Despite the departure from brighter pop for a more grown-up feel (though the whistles keep it rooted), the video's contents are still fairly standard Simpson. The 17-year-old is getting down and dusty, creating his own surfboard from scratch. His skills attract a fine lady, portrayed by model/girlfriend Gigi Hadid, and together the duo goes out for a night on the beach. There's plenty of water kicked around, as well as some choreographed dancing. more on this story
