Well, they got their own spotlight now. It's a pretty damn good song, to say the least.
Music video for We Own The Night.
So with the new music video, The Wanted FINALLY announces the date for their next album, and it's dropping September 23. Now that's stiff competition from already in-bound rock band Kings of Leon, but I'm sure The Wanted can handle the pressure, and it's the decade old rock band that should be feeling the heat. After all, this song is pretty reminiscent to the start of their careers.
We Own The Night is just a disco-ball and sets you in the dance mood in a club or at home. The Wanted never lets you down (Walks Like Rihanna - I know, I know), but at least now it's finally back to what they do best. Chasing The Sun was just riding under the shadows of Glad You Came, and I Found You to be honest, at one point I thought the song was the best song of the summer. I was so wrong and Walks Like Rihanna was just a radio jam, nothing spectacular nor shabby. So if you're releasing an album in a few weeks, you want people to know who you are right? So the boys hailing from UK stare down the clubs back in their hometowns as kings of the night as they intend to take over the place and really just make it their own. This song though, does one thing right: the vibe. I felt nothing with Chasing The Sun, I Found You and not even Walks Like Rihanna. This one hit the right notes, the right points and it's probably why I really wanted to listen to it more when I heard the snippet. The song starts off with Max's usual solo-rendition, before the crowd vocals starts ripping apart the production of the song through the gears, and that's the part I got through to the song. However, the lyrics did put off the composure, and I know most people who are double-standards to the words might have an issue with 'Tonight, we own the night', in which night is rhymed twice. Sure they're creatively drawn like One Direction, but make no mistake, comparing the two of them sure is not going to help, so maybe I'll refrain it from now. I still am enjoying this track, and this might be the point in which The Wanted will finally stop the people from recalling their past hits.
May our hearts be full like our drinks tonight
ORIGINALITY: 7/10 - Face it, it wasn't original when you've got a top 3 Billboard Hot 100 track that's just staring at you waiting for you to repeat that feat. Inspiration has to come from somewhere.
SOUND: 8/10 - The vibe is just stringing through and is probably one of the reasons why this song is still stuck in my head.
LYRICS: 8/10 - Well, there's effort and I commend them. There's nothing like a party song with relevant lyrics, right David Guetta?
OVERALL: 23/30 - The track is an abundance of joy, and it's really pleasant to finally listen to The Wanted with really their style. I just can't say enough of their previous single as it's just a downer. We Own The Night is just great, and you're going to have a great time listening to it. Play it for days guys.
Benny Ong: Just your regular guy who likes soccer more than most people, and also a little downtime is pretty nice.
