Dev premieres video for "Dancing Shoes" [Video review]

Dev looks stunning and downright gorgeous in the brand-new video for "Dancing Shoes," a track taken from her forthcoming debut LP "The Night The Sun Came Up."

Even tough Dev's duet with Enrique Iglesias on "Naked" is her official (and very good) new single, the Los Angeles singer and proud mama has plenty of fresh material to share and to tease us with until her album drops on March 27.

After the party-starting "Bass Down Low" and the sultry grooves of "In The Dark," this new "Dancing Shoes" shows off a much softer side of Dev. It's a pop lullaby of the sweetest kind that is perfectly prepped with Dev's candy-coated vocals and lush, dreamy arrangement courtesy of The Cataracs.

"Dancing Shoes" is really a song for her fans in which Dev opens up and talks what it is like to perform for them night after night all across the world. She perfectly captures that exact moment of anticipation right before going on stage. She sings, "I'm putting on my dancing shoes tonight and a thousand people are waiting for me. I can hear them outside from the curtain I sit behind. The drums kick in and the lights go down and my heartbeat drowns out the sound (. . . ) I sing my song and a thousand voices singalong."

The video for "Dancing Shoes" brings the gentle tones of the song to life by telling the story of a young boy performing in front of a crowd. Instead of cheering him on, the audience boos his performance and one audience member even throws a banana peel onto the stage, which causes the boy to trip. Always rooting for the underdog, Dev hurries over and catches the boy's fall and joins him on stage to graciously finish the performance together. It is sweet video for an equally sweet tune that emphasizes that Dev sure isn't a one trick pony.
