I don't think he is a soul boy, unless you meant in the sense of the film of that name.  His moves are more Bob Fosse than any dancefloor I've been on.  Admittedly he has a pleasant enough voice, and it will probably do Worthing pier some good.

It seems strange that he would adopt such a wardrobe.  I have no idea what his fanbase is, but I would have thought moonstruck genderfluid teens were a majority, and they will have no idea of the significance of his baggies and vest.  If he were to have learned some solid dance steps before doing the video then maybe it would have been more enjoyable and have a modicum of relevance.

Plenty of people working behind the scenes in media and music who love to drag out the old done to death baggy pants and vest soul boy look given the opportunity.

 

northern soul featuring in modern music can be done far better

Would be a lot more 'authentic' if ....  he was thirty years older , shaved his head , put on about six stone and invested in a few dozen repro patches from fleabay .... !

Other than that it's yet another insipid 'pop' song soon to be forgotten.

Am I the only one who, when seeing his shoes, is reminded of Ronald McDonald?

Ok I'll bite Will Young is innocent and does as he is told but someone in the process isnt and is quite happy to play to the lowest common denominator stereotypical image of a couple of years of the scenes history.

Its a wonder that he didnt have all the usual fame whore oooh look at me brigade with him .

Comming to a soul night near you soon

This does not work in any way, especially at 2.09 when he gets on all fours and starts a kylie Minogue move....
