I was really surprised yesterday morning when I got online and saw this video, for most of the day I actually thought it was the “official video” of Manías and I loved it! But apparently it is what it is LOL, just a backstage video of the recording process, not the actual music video of this first single from Habítame Siempre.
Anyway, I like the video because through it we can to join Thalia into her studio and watch the passion with which she works on her music, her emotions, her excitement and even the moments when she’s trying to get her strength back. Just look at her hands, her walks outside or inside the studio, her facial expressions, her smiles and her laughter, her moments of deep concentration and the ones doing silly things. Of course, all this has a lot to do with the song and its meaning, and I think the images blend perfectly with the lyrics, that’s why at first I was convinced this was the actual music video.
I think the reason why I love this video so much is that somehow I’m more fascinated by Thalia the person, not the artist (I think I’ve written about that before), so I wasn’t expecting a “huge” video, with a story or something, with outfits and directed moments, I am more happy with seeing Thalia just the way she is. ♥
Oh, I saw NuestraThalia‘s post yesterday and she reminded me of this picture, I remember trying to find out what song was Thalia covering with her hand, it’s nice to look back at it now, when I recognize the lyrics 🙂

PS: What I don’t like is how Sony Music keeps handling Thalia’s online promotion, I don’t get it. If this was meant to be just a backstage video, why not mention that in the title or in the description, just so that people don’t get confused? Not to mention how a while ago the lyric video simply disappeared from her VEVO account on Youtube, due to copyright claims by Sony Music. I was like, seriously? Well, at least she does have a VEVO account and there’s some promotion going on with it, like this background image on Youtube, which I assume appears on other videos too, or this thing.
