Music video[edit]

A music video to accompany the release of "Vegas Girl" was first released onto YouTube on 24 June 2012 at a total length of three minutes and forty seconds. Filmed in New York, the video was directed by Travis Kopach.

It begins with Maynard meeting a girl who is wearing a T shirt that reads "Vegas Girl" he takes a picture of her and tweets it asking his followers if they have seen her throughout the videos various females wearing the same Tshirt are shown.[1]

The song also features a sampling of A.R. Rahman’s track ‘Urvasi Urvasi’ from the 1994 hit Tamil movie ‘Kadhalan’.

Critical reception[edit]

Robert Copsey of Digital Spy gave the song a positive review stating:

"I'll knock you down like you're Keri/ Forget your name like Rihanna," he insists over slick urban-light beats with a voice that will undoubtedly draw comparisons to Justin Timberlake. The obvious clichés are all present and correct ("Roll the dice, I've got your number/ Hit the jackpot underneath the cover"), but he gets away with it, if only for his homage halfway through to Tequila, Tequila Tequila... 3/5 stars.[2]
