And not with some pop promoted product, is would be to primitive  for Bilan. What happens if multiply Bilan’s regalia (winning the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest, 7 MTV EMA awards, 18 Muz TV awards, and countless others), and the American singer and author of Russian origin POLINA –winner  of the most prestigious music Grammy Award for a joint track «Legacy» with rapper Eminem, some  "gold" discs and world No.1 for tracks «Book of Love» and «Fade to Love», which is also became  hits in Russia, countless stellar collaborations with DJ  artists like Tiesto, Steve Aoki and Felix Jaehn? Answer: explosive dance track “ ” (Drunk Love) with trendy beat and intriguing sound! But the status is far from the main thing in this story. This is primarily a meeting of two bright individuals, a conversation on an equal footing, where the girl is not only sensuality, beauty and instantly recognizable timbre, but also a powerful creator with her own take, and Bilan, with his musician super-flair and taste, builds true harmony with her - yes, miracles happen, kindred spirits are sometimes brought to meet.

The friendly team of the Russian national hit "Derzhi" (Hold)  - Dima Bilan, Ksenia Sukhinova, Director Leonid Kolosovsky and  and MOZGI Production - gathered again to please us with another story from the life of a couple of dancing cranks who are so fond of us in the clip "Derzhi". Filming took place in late March in Cyprus, in the cities of Larnaka and Limassol.

This video is even more colorful and dynamic.. Two slightly crazy people notice each other in the light of club spotlights, succumb to the dance, and then  thoughts take them to the parallel universe, where a love story is born: amazing, bright, like a musical.

"From the experience of cooperation with Dima, I knew that he works perfectly in pairs. Therefore, I wanted to continue the story of his tandem with Ksenia Sukhinova. In addition, attentive viewers will notice several connecting threads with the clip "Derzhi", - says director Leonid Kolosovsky. - This video story is not only about an unexpected meeting, but also about how people get on two roles. Often, inside a person is much more honest and pleasant than it may seem at first glance. The main rule is not to judge by appearance! "

According to the director, there were fights on the set ... of course, for the sake of art! For this scene, the team was able to hire the best stuntmen in Cyprus. However, heroes could not  avoid bruises and falls. Dima and Xenia  performed complex tricks  without  help of doubles.

Long filming was preceded by a painstaking preparation process. The only search of one of the locations - nightclub – took  a whole month. But, nevertheless, the team managed to find a suitable bar with unique interior solutions.

 The artists also shared their impressions of the shootings.

Dima Bilan:

   "I really liked the idea of ​​two mutually exclusive realities: dark and light, subjective and objective. This gives rise to interesting and difficult questions! What is really real: how do our characters feel themselves (light, glamor, harmony), or how they are seen by others (darkness, freaks, chaos)? And what is more important? I don’t  have a final answer yet, at the moment I will say this: for me, what matters is that I am in the center of this circle.

And of the two images, of course, I'm more interested in the image of the "bad guy": it's very stylish, edgy, charismatic. We got such a collective portrait (you can remember Brad Pitt in "Fight Club"), I dream of playing a negative role in the movie, - here, I'm doing sketches. And, in addition, these images give me some breathing space, help to shake off the excessive gilding from myself, jump off the pedestal. I'm not perfect, I'm alive! "Light" part is effective in a  different way: all passers-by  got our reference to "La La Land" in a dance on the waterfront. Two different shooting styles work on two realities. Bravo to team! This is my fourth work with Leonid Kolosovsky and MOZGI Production, and the guys never cease to amaze. It was very pleasant to film  again  with Ksenia Sukhinova, I feel that our couple turned out to be, found flesh and blood. But the final word is for the viewer! "

Miss World 2008 Ksenia Sukhinova:

   "I’m  In Cyprus for the first time, pleased with the temperature plus 25 and wonderful people around. We have a totally friendly, talented and positive team, with whom I am ready for any experiments day and night. But to break the record of "Derzhi" views, we will have to try very hard! The clip "Girl, do not cry" turned out to be quite different: in “Derzh” I have only one simple role, and this clip is good because there are two absolutely different images: a good and a bad girl. This allowed me to play with styles. On the first day of filming there is a provocative role, here I am, somewhere, maybe, depraved, impudent - another! And it gives a lot of opportunities, for example, you can relax and dance as if nobody sees you. And the style  turned out variegated: a leopard dress, a leather jacket, voluminous shoulders, a "Love" chain  - ​​a bit from  90's; shabby hair, leaking make-up, smeared lips - the image of such a hot girl, who has not been sleeping for a few days. And on the second day of filming, I appear in the image of a kind fairy, where the color of my outfit is also yellow, as in the "Derzhi", and this is a very sweet story - such a pretty, clean, bright Ksenia. And dancing on the embankment against the azure sea.

   I studied  dance beforehand and, I hope, became a worthy partner to Dima, with whom I generally work very comfortably. In the scenes in the club, I danced on high heels all 12 hours of filming. And it turned out, oddly enough, it's easy! Lenya Kolosovsky did not believe that it was possible, he wanted to give me shoes, but I said: "I can, I will do it." And I did it! I was also pleased with the end of the story, where Dima finally received from me a "response" to the final of "Derzhi"!
