A thirty second preview of Kylie Minogue‘s “I Was Gonna Cancel” video surfaced online and the footage has finally found its way to YouTube. The snippet finds the Australian pop icon singing the song in the middle of a bustling crowd. She previously used the same concept for a much-maligned live performance at the Logies.
There’s nothing fancy about the set-up but the simplicity and retro styling evoke iconic Fever-era visuals like “Come Into My World” and “Love At First Sight”, which is a very good thing. “I Was Gonna Cancel” remains something of a curiosity. The song is cute enough but it’s hard to imagine it being picked as a single without the Pharrell connection. (He produced it).
