Arjun – “Vampire” (Featuring Starz)

Burban, R&B, Rap, Soul, UK Asian

Score: 8.1

Is “Vampire” going to be Arjun’s breakthrough moment? Probably not. Is it, however, another marker detailing his progress towards genuine stardom? Absolutely. The strong beat is reminiscent of a stringless “Candy Shop” and the video, incidently, is a huge step up in quality. The inclusion of Starz works pretty well, and Arjun commits to the central concept (the vampyrical tendencies of his next alluring target) enough that it is consistent but not cheesy. There are a couple of caveats that prevent it from being top notch – the mixing/mastering of his vocals is very “Rishi Rich” in nature, and is almost too layered and compressed. As for his own vocal performance, we know that he can sing better than this, but it’s still relatively fitting for the dark subject matter, and hey, it’s a club track (though it does heavily borrow those “da-da-da-daa’s”). Now that it is here, we’re not entirely sure that “Vampire” works as a potential “big single” (mainly due to the lack of a soaring chorus) but it will fit perfectly into an album – and it is a quantum leap forward, in every respect, from this time last year. We predict that you will be seeing Arjun on T4, MTV, Kiss TV and other such mainstream music portals within 18 months, for this is an Asian singer you can be genuinely proud of.

ARJUN – VAMPIRE LYRICS

(Rap verse by Starz)
Yeah, uh
Baby, I ain’t playing a game, I love the way that you say my name
OK, you’re a (++VAMPIRE++) – I call the shots, I’m an umpire
You can burn with the kid cos I’m on fire
You can shine bright, in the limelight
Throw the clocks out the window – time flies
You know I can treat you better
A vampire, so baby we can live forever

(Arjun)

Body shaped like a coke bottle
Baby girl you’re a role model
Guess you’re rocking with the most swagger
All the guys up in here wanna get to know you
All the ladies wanna do it like you
Girl, come here, let me get up on you
Yeah, everybody’s talkin’ bout you
They wanna know…

Can you work that back, baby?
Can you give that body to me?
When you bite that lip, lady
I’ve never seen a thing so sexy
Can you bring that fire, baby?
I can see your body burning
Can you feel my body yearning?
Can you do it like…

Now I ask you to wait, it’s too little too late
Cos I’m well on my way, to being your next victim
I’ve got to run away, already going insane
Da-da-da-daaa Da-da-da-daaa

Cos you’re a Vampire (can you be my darkest fantasy?)

And now you’re coming on strong
Girl you’re gonna get it cos you got it going on
I’ve been up in here watching you grind
And I ain’t gonna lie, girl, I wanna get dirty
I’ll suck the blood out my veins
Girl you must be famous
Ya blud clot
Your body is so tight that it’s making me thirsty

Can you work that back, baby?
Can you give that body to me?
When you bite that lip, lady
I’ve never seen a thing so sexy
Can you bring that fire, baby?
I can see your body burning
Can you feel my body yearning?
Can you do it like…

Now I ask you to wait, it’s too little too late
Cos I’m well on my way, to being your next victim
I’ve got to run away, already going insane
Da-da-da-daaa Da-da-da-daaa

(Rap Verse 2 by STARZ)

Baby understand…
I could be your wonderman
I can see that you’ve got a smile like a hundred grand
I’m just trying to let you know that I’m the man
We can fly like a G6
Cos I need this, and you need me
So if we “Connect” like BT
We can fly outta this world – ET

(Back to ARJUN)

Body move like a scorpion
Baby girl you’re the champion
Lick a bum like a Vampire
Got your eyes on the prize and there ain’t no stopping you

Now I ask you to wait, it’s too little too late
Cos I’m well on my way, to being your next victim
I’ve got to run away, already going insane
Da-da-da-daaa Da-da-da-daaa

Can you work that back, baby?
Can you give that body to me?
When you bite that lip, lady
I’ve never seen a thing so sexy
Can you bring that fire, baby?
I can see your body burning
Can you feel my body yearning?
Can you do it like…

Cos you’re a Vampire (can you be my darkest fantasy?)

  1. I heard it for the first time today and I was quite impressed by it. The sound is great, I agree Starz was an excellent choice. Catchy beat, definitely is a club track. Arjun is very good-looking, following in Jay Sean’s footsteps no doubt. Would have been even better to see him in a final extended dance out or something before fading at the end. Great job Arjun.

  2. I HEARD IT THE FIRST TIME AND IT DROVE ME CRAZY ITS BEATS AND THE LYRICS ARE AWESOME AND ARJUN HAS ROCKED THIS SONG!! ITS ON MY MIND EVERYTIME !! ITS JUST GR8!
