“Stop Me From Falling” Is Kylie Minogue’s Best Video Since “All The Lovers”
Kylie Minogue’s Golden era is full of surprises. Just when you thought the Aussie pop icon had settled into country-pop, she switches lanes again — experimenting with Latin music on a new remix of “Stop Me From Falling.” The idea of blending those genres is a little unorthodox, but it works. Shockingly well. Gente De Zona deserves a lot of credit. The Cuban duo imbues the song with new energy, which makes it even catchier than before. At a time when Latin artists are taking over the charts, this could be big for both of them.
And then there’s the glorious video. Directed by Sophie Muller, the clip begins with Kylie on a boring date. Another man suddenly catches her eye and, before you can say “Body Language is underrated,” the blond bombshell is on a beach in Cuba. From there, we’re transported to a street scene in what looks like Havana. What comes next is an explosion of looks, choreography and pure, unadulterated fun. After taking a less-is-more approach to recent visuals, this is the 49-year-old’s best since “All The Lovers” — a video that remains untouchable for now.
