When you think about the music and music video offerings that Luke Bryan has given us, you can see that he has offered up fun, funny, pensive, heartwarming and even sexy songs and visuals. But being a man of mystery isn’t necessarily something he has done before.
So, he’s doing it now.
Luke has just released a new song “What She Wants Tonight” and, based on the song alone, we believe we have another uber-sexy and romantic tune to keep us warm as winter approaches. Co-written with Ross Copperman, Hillary Lindsey and Jon Nite, the steamy ballad paints a picture of a late-night hook-up that takes the control away from the man for the evening and puts it in the hands of a strong, empowered woman who knows exactly what she wants. And the lyrics come from the vantage point of her target…
…or victim, if you’re watching the music video. Yes, in an interesting twist of fate, this exotic beauty does put the red dot of her crosshairs on a certain gentleman and begins her pursuit. Viewers feel almost voyeuristic as the seduction begins in an upscale night out and continues into a dimly lit room in the well-to-do gentleman’s home. As the vixen taunts and teases, removing his tie and pulling out handcuffs, for a fleeting moment viewers wonder if Luke is putting his spin on 50 Shades of Grey, however, things quickly go south when we see that our raven-haired protagonist is less interested in bondage and more into theft.
Props to Luke and his team for elevating this steamy new smash with a clever interpretation of a song that stands strong on its own.
