Natisse Interview: Follow Me Video

// May 6th, 2010 // News

With Follow Me still being hammered on the nation’s dancefloors, we grabbed a moment with Nat to talk about her music, her dreams and that saucy video…

‘Follow Me’ has been causing a bit of a stir, not least because of the video, which shows more than a flash of bare cheek in the street. How was it shooting the video?

I felt a little bit uncomfortable to start with… but only as I was wearing some new heels! After couple of practice shots I forgot I wasn’t wearing much and it all felt pretty normal. Obviously passers-by didn’t think that though! We had some looks. One guy got in trouble with his girlfriend for staring. You know what girlfriends are like about stuff like that. Then we had a truck driver who stopped and tried to take a picture, a cabbie who kept driving past and a van-load of young guys making rude jokes.
The funny thing was we filmed outside when it was freezing, but I was the only one not complaining about the cold because I was walking around in time to the music all day!

What reaction to the video have you got so far from friends and family?

My friend have been nice, the usual comment being ‘nice bum’. Some have moaned that it’s too revealing, but then I tell them if it was Cheryl Cole in the video they wouldn’t think twice about it, and they usually agree.
My grandparents were a bit ‘ooh-la-la’ when they first saw it – and my parents too – but after the first shock they were fine. I think it was more a surprise to them that I’d actually do something like that than anything else.

You’ve been busy recording an album and lots of singles to come. Tell us a bit about which are your favourite tracks so far and why?

I think the next single, ‘Kiss Me On The Lips’, in my favourite. I’ve got a great songwriting and production team, but I didn’t like it at first. Hearing it with the music was totally different and it sounds very funky. It’s also more upbeat and it’s funny too. Having said that ‘Follow Me’ is so catchy I think it’s going to be a lot of people’s favourite out of what I’ve done so far.

Look out for part 2 of this interview tomorrow…
