Mexican singer-songwriter Aleks Syntek is channeling eighties rocker Robert Palmer in his video for “Loca,” the first single from his upcoming album, Metodos de Placer Instantáneo (out Feb. 9 on Capitol Latin). The homage features the 40-year-old Yucateño suited up and backed by four beauties with slicked-back hair, thigh-high skirts and white guitars like in Palmer’s “Addicted to Love” video. Syntek, who was just 16 when the iconic video premiered, isn’t the first artist to cull inspiration from it. Beyoncé and Shania Twain borrowed elements from the video, too, for their “Green Light” and “Man! I Feel Like a Woman” music videos, respectively.
Syntek’s version, which is now available on iTunes, also features some seemingly crazy, yet sexy, women that blend into walls, get their feathers ruffled and cuddle fake babies. Watch it below and let me know what you think.
