Charley says SONG! Betty – Déjà Vu

AATW has just uploaded Inna’s ‘Déjà Vu‘ video to their YouTube channel. Now don’t get me wrong, I love this little Eastern European popstar that could. She took Europe by surprise with ‘Hot‘ and is one of the front runners in the current Romanian pop invasion. However, it does slightly annoy me to hear yet another song mispronouncing the word ‘déjà vu’. Beyoncé, I’m looking at you as well.

Once and for all, people, ‘déjà vu’ DOESN’T rhyme with ‘you’. ‘Rendez-vous’ does, ‘déjà vu’ doesn’t. There.

One track that does get it right is the Betty song posted above. ‘Déjà Vu‘ was the last track on the Flemish ‘Big Brother’ superstar’s debut album. It sounds very different to the rest of ‘Come To Me‘, which mainly consisted of your average 2001 pop.

Basically, ‘Déjà Vu‘ couldn’t be more of an ‘Encore Une Fois‘ rip-off if it tried. It’s all there: the French spoken word intro, the techno synths and the title shouted as a chorus. That doesn’t stop it from being slightly brilliant though. Bonus points for the fake French accent on the English verses, Betty’s infamous laugh at the end and, well, apparently being the only person in pop to know how to pronounce ‘déjà vu’.
