Renegade - Cimorelli


The Experience: This renegades not changing! WOW! If you need a breath of fresh air after years of generic/plastic singers check out CIMORELLI who really get across who they are in their new song Renegade. You want to shape and mold me, I'm sorry you don't own me.


Music video: Cimorelli faces up to the "experts" of the music world who are trying to tell them "who they have to be" to succeed (revealing, glamorous, provocative, edgy, triendy, generic...). Yet these young ladies have found a secret the establishment missed. Authenticity. They aren't going to compromise who they are. They won't simply be the puppets of the establishment, but will make it big their own way (emotional, personal, honest, authentic, REAL).


The Meaning: I am not going to waste my time trying to be something I'm not. The Cimorelli sisters have found the secret to success in life: I'm just tryin' to stay true to the inner me! Who ever said we have to be cheap plastic copies of others or live up to someone else's standards? Get real with me, I'm not your puppet on a string. These ladies are going to be fearless and take control, doing it their way.

Ask yourself: Who am I? Do I let others tell me who I am?
