Martin Solveig: The Night Out
The video's a treat for any fan of Paris, that most cinematic of cities. Although as a long-time francophile I accept my judgement may be somewhat open to question.
Anyway, another catchy dancefloor filler and a raft of remixes that remodel the track.
Whether it's as big a smash (sorry!) as Ready to Go or Hello really doesn't matter as the album's raised Solveig's world DJ Rankings - as the Hello video would have it - to the premier league.
Since the Smash album came out he's collaborated with Madonna and while Give Me All Your Luvin' might not have been the hit that it was expected to be, the other tracks on the album and Madonna's tour will certainly keep the spotlight on him.
The new video also brings the Smash video story cycle to a happy ending, with Solveig getting the girl and Lafaille getting to steer the ship.
