Austin Mahone Review “Say You’re Just a Friend”


Austin Mahone: Say You’re Just A Friend
Reviewed By: Lexi Segal

From the streets of La Vernia, Texas, to becoming a huge YouTube star, the 16-year-old boy has begun his big break to stardom. His first single, Say You’re Just A Friend featuring FloRida, was released December 3rd, 2012. This new teen sensation is the one and only Austin Mahone.

Austin Mahone was just like any other child. He went to school, got good grades, and loved music. Alex, Austin’s best friend, started a YouTube channel together called “Shoot Us Down” where they uploaded videos of Austin’s covers. His first recordings were remakes of top songs. He covered all different artists, including Justin Bieber. In 2011 Austin covered Justin’s Mistletoe, with more views in a week than Bieber himself.

Say You’re Just A Friend, a catchy, rhythmic song that was perfect for music video entertaining. Austin described it as “an up-beat song that you can party to.” The music video is colorful, action packed, and has terrific choreography that makes you want to get up and dance. His body language and facial expressions convinces the viewer that he truly wants the beautiful girl to be more than “just a friend.” The true meaning of his hit song, explores an issue that all teen boys experience at one time or another. Austin wants one of his friends to be more than that but he doesn’t want to ruin their friendship. The music video depicts how Austin will get the girl and wow her and his fans at the same time.

By far the best part about this video is Austin’s dancing skills. He showed, through his dance moves, that he is talented, not just another pretty face. Looking forward to listen to his upcoming album being released in the near future.

Austin Mahone “Say Something” and Jamie Dee “Tip Toes”
Music Review
“Say something” by Austin Mahone is the definition of today’s music, party addictive beats accompanying this Justin Bieber/Drake type voice make this song an immediate hit. A weird combination but it works in a way that gives a fresh new look at today’s up in coming artists. The song to sum it up is about a teenager who has eyes for that special girl, a common theme in recent years. Justin Mahone is quite new with only 2 confirmed songs the other being “11:11”. “Say Something” is the kind of song where you walk into a room and when it comes on, it becomes a party. Its got a vibe that makes you want to dance, although my only complaint is that the lyrics could have been touched up. Overall Austin Mahone’s hit song “Say something” is definitely an example of a new era type song and I hope we get more similar to this song soon. Here’s a link Austin’s video.

When I first started listening to Jamie Dee’s single “Tip Toes” the thing I tried to do most was figure out whom she sounds like, who she is reminiscent to, and I concluded that she is like no one I have heard in a while. Her song is about a girl who likes a guy who has her on her “tip toes”. I personally had mixed feelings for the song itself, although I love Jamie Dee’s voice. Her song has a dance type beat to it and will definitely get you in the mood to, but at the same time I felt like the song was kind of relaxing which is strange. I also found Jamie’s Youtube channel which has most of her songs and covers. I hope to see more from her in the future and a song that really captures her beauty inside and out, and her amazing voice and range.
