Divas need to surprise us like this more often: Just a couple of weeks after the out-of-the-blue duet between Kylie Minogue and Italian pop star Laura Pausini, the ladies released the video for Limpido (Clear) Saturday evening.
The mid-tempo rock ballad is about moving forward in relationships (“letting go, no more fighting”…”deep inside is a love you don’t even know”) and has the gay-favorite Aussie delivering killer vocals in English, while Pausini sings in Italian with equal flawlessness.
Written by Pausini and Virginio Simonelli, “Clear” was released on September 10 as the lead single from Pausini’s greatest-hits album, 20: The Greatest Hits. The song was also recorded in Spanish (as Limpio) and Pausini has released a solo version in Italian. “Limpio” marks the second time Minogue records and releases a song in Spanish—she released “Los Amores” in 2010.
As for the video: If looks could kill, these ladies would slay us with their contrasting outfits—Kylie in black-lace dress and Pausini donning a white dress suit. Other visuals feature the divas in a pool of glittery, metallic water (where can we get that?), as a shirtless rope-covered Adonis dances on sand.
