James Arthur Gets Cozy with Dutch Model Kim Feenstra in Video for MOKS Collabo, ‘Otherwise’ (Premiere)
For anyone who's kept up with The X Factor UK over the years, you'll no doubt remember James Arthur, the winner of the ninth season of the series. Upon taking the crown in 2012, the singer dropped his Top 5 self-titled debut the following year, featuring his #2 UK hit, "You're Nobody 'til Somebody Loves You."
In the next few years (and a quick label switch-up from Syco to Columbia), the singer's taken some time to explore some new sounds, including a foray into the electronic scene with rising Dutch duo, MOKS.
Armed with a super infectious whistle hook — which would have fit in perfectly with Hilary Duff's "Sparks" whistle mash-up we premiered a few weeks ago — "Otherwise" merges Arthur's soulful vocals with a solid, understated pulse to craft a damning post-break-up ballad for the dance floor.
Today, PopCrush is happy to bring you the video premiere for "Otherwise," starring the X Factor crooner and Dutch model Kim Feenstra. (Think she's real pretty? She just so happens to be the winner of 2007's Holland's Next Top Model.) Together, the two go through the motions, going from head-over-heels to looking all contemplative and introspective. Are these two in it for the long haul or not? Based on these lyrics, we're thinking otherwise.
Check out the premiere of MOKS' "Otherwise" with James Arthur up top.
