MONROSE : Hot Summer
Okay, so So You Think You Can Dance contestant Rhys Bobridge didn’t have much luck with his own version of ‘Hot Summer’ a year and a half later here in Australia, but back in 2007, German girl group Monrose was at the top of the charts in their homeland with their original.
Still riding high on the wave of success following their Popstars triumph, ‘Hot Summer’ went on to nab a gold accreditation for sales of more than 150,000 copies and was the lead single for the girls’ sophomore album ‘Strictly Physical’.
And though yes, Rhys’s clip was far hotter, we far and away prefer Monrose’s original when it comes to the track itself (even the Koreans got into the ‘Hot Summer’ act earlier this year too – HERE).
Alas, Monrose announced just over 12 months ago that the group was to be no more and that all members were set to embark upon solo careers.
