Young Ukrainian popstar Alekseev has presented the official video for his latest single Sberegu.

Alekseev has returned from his Eurovision 2018 adventure, releasing the song Sberegu (Сберегу, “I will save you”). The upcoming artist has filmed a sensual music video to accompany the song, featuring the acting skills of dancer Maria “Masha” Kolosova of the FREEDOM BALLET.

As Alekseev explains, shooting the rather explicit video proved to be quite a challenge:

It is a big test to play lovers. Your relationship begins when the director screams ‘Start!’ and ends as soon as the operator moves the camera. Last scene, where we took a shower with Masha, was not easy for us. At first it didn’t work out, confusion prevailed, and everything did not look real. There are a lot of people around you, they want to support, but it only knocks down. You want to give up everything and leave, but you can not fail, and you have to get used to the role.

In the end, everything worked out well. The singer has certainly hit the mark, as the chemistry between him and Maria perfectly expresses the message of the song:

And I can’t get enough of you
And there’s no escaping it, we’re on the same wavelength
We can’t be held back, we’ll grow tender
And I’ll be able to do anything
I’ll find you among broken walls
The heavens draw strange shadows from us
And you and I dance in this void
I will save you

With lyrics and music by Kirill Pavlov, the music video of Sberegu was directed by FRANKENSTEIN. Director of photography was Alexander Zemlyanoy, choreographer was Nazar Didyk.
