Blake Shelton Releases 'Sangria' Video
. (Radio.com) Blake Shelton is turning once again to alcohol to help fuel his latest single. But it's not beer or whiskey that's providing the buzz this time, it's "Sangria." And what a buzz it is, at least if the new "Sangria" music video is any indication. The video premiered last week on new site Vessel, and it posted today on YouTube.
Written by J.T. Harding, Josh Osborne and Trevor Rosen, "Sangria" is a song about seduction, coupling a laid-back groove with lyrics that leave little to the imagination.
We're buzzing like that no vacancy sign out front / Your skin is begging to be kissed by a little more than the sun / You take my hand in yours, you lean in and / Your lips taste like sangria
The accompanying "Sangria" video matches the lusty mood of the song…and takes things even further. It begins in the bar of what looks like an upscale resort, showing a young couple who may or may not have just met but are obviously enamored with each other. They stare into each others' eyes, they touch, and then before you know it they're in the hallway kissing. As the friskiness escalates, they eye an open room (presumably theirs?), head inside and shut the door.
Now in many a country music video, what happens next would be implied. In "Sangria," however, we step right into the room with the two lovers, watching as they pull off clothes and get down to business, lips to lips and skin to skin.
Yes, the "Sangria" video is risque. But that's not all--there's something unsettling about it, too. Read more and watch the video here.
