New artist Christian TV's 'When She Turns 18': Could this be a summer smash?
Image Credit: Bryan SheffieldNew Motown signee Christian TV (real name: Christian Berishaj) has a warning for fathers all over: Keeping your daughter cooped up in her room is only going to lead to her busting out and going nuts once birthday number 18 hits and the law allows.
The 24-year-old’s debut single, “When She Turns 18,” is like the aggressive synth-pop version of John Mayer’s 2003 tune, “Daughters.” Back then Mayer explained to dads that parenting the beautiful young ladies in your home poorly is going to make them damaged adults.
Seven years later, Christian’s “18” promises that restricted girls will pack their duffles and leave their prison homes.
“She just wants attention and you won’t give it to her,” Christian sings on the cut. “Living in detention, she’s gotta get away. She’s got her life in a bag and she’s on the run. Girls really do just wanna have fun.”
Christian recently shot a new video to support the first single from his forthcoming as-yet-untitled debut album. But before he earned his record deal, the Detroit native made his own. So while we wait on the new version, check out his raunchy slumber party (NSFW) clip after the jump.
If the new video is as great as the song, “18” might become one of the songs of the summer. Katy Perry kicked things off. This guy might be next.
Think Christian’s got a shot? Let us know.
