Rather Be | #MusicMonday

Monday has came and with that, comes another song to get the week started off right. 
This weeks choice of song is....

'Rather Be' by Clean Bandit feat. Jess Glynne 

This song was released on 17th January this year as the fourth single from the British electronic group, 'Clean Bandit''s upcoming debut studio album 'New Eyes' (Released earlier this year).

The song debuted at number one on the UK Singles Chart, and is the fastest-selling single of 2014 so far, and the highest selling single in January since 'Spaceman' back 17 years ago, in 1996 by Babylon Zoo.
'Rather Be' spent four weeks at number one, selling excess of just over 400,000 copies since released and now sits at number three on the UK's official charts. It is also the first song to spend four consecutive weeks at number one since "Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke in June last year and the first UK based act since "Someone like You" by Adele 3 years ago,in 2011.

For those who are not clear about what the video is about exactly (I know I wasent) here is a little insight that the band said. "The video is about a Japanese fan of the band who becomes delirious and has hallucinations of band members and our logo appearing unexpectedly in her daily life as a chef. Filming in Tokyo was an amazing experience: we spent almost a week there and everyone was so helpful. We made it ourselves as always, which was quite scary as we've never produced anything so far away before. We had a bit of trouble filming the scene on the train though. Turns out it's considered incredibly rude to make noise on a train so when we started dancing around to the track in the carriage with the extras, it didn't go down well!!!! Got shouted at :("

Hope you liked this weeks song choice and I will see you next Music Monday with a brand new song!
