“Tropical Storm” is as hot as the desert and as refreshing as its title.
This single introduces a Yetundey flirting with mainstream Pop. While one might expect the music to reflect the force and violence of a tropical storm, on the contrary, Yetundey places us in the eye of the cyclone from where we watch the storm rage.
The music video of the single “Tropical Storm” juxtaposes the sensuality and lust sung on the inside with the harsh reality represented by the dancers set in bare concrete halls. The dance was self-choreographed by Yetundey. She chose to tell a story of seduction, love and passion. A very sober version of the ups and downs, push and pulls one can experience during an emotional tropical storm. The vulnerability of the woman is the focus here –just count the number of times she is seen laying on the floor. Yet her energy and ability to rebound show that –be it tropical or polar – no storm can suppress the strength of a woman. Nonetheless the electric moment at the very end of the video offers a happy ending: both tired of the dance, they lie down and accept their vulnerability, and so love becomes a true possibility.
Sehnsucht und Begierde
“Yetundey kann auch dramatisch, wie die epische R’n’B-Ballade Tropical Storm beweist – Ein Song mit Chart-Potential.” (DER ALBRECHT)
