Tove Lo and Flume released the music video for “Say It” and it is out of this world…literally.
Directed by Nez and Gina Llebaria, the featured dancers flying across the sky come from the vertical dance company known as Del Reves.
The video starts with a camera shot of the blue sky and light wisps of clouds. An astronaut appears falling from space and into the mesmerizing atmosphere. She’s then joined by a humanoid made of mirrors, and together they collide softly with panels of windows against the sky backdrop. The two engage in an epic gravity-defying dance battle pushing and kicking off from one another.
This chill trap tune made its first premiere on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show back in April and shortly after Flume released the tune for fans on Twitter. Flume features the song on his new album Skin which he released in just a month after the premiere.
The Australian producer was inspired to make this song after hearing Tove Lo’s song “Habits” at a bar in Los Angeles. He called her the following day, agreed to collaborate, and they finished the song in just two days. “I wasn’t really familiar with her stuff, but I really, really like it” he said on the show. He got on Shazaam to connect the name to the voice.
Billboard described the song as “a relatable breakup story of a painful relationship that’s stuck on repeat, complemented by a melodic chorus and soft beats.” The lyrics speak to the overpowering emotions brought on by a person’s carnal desires – “break my bed to make me want to stay.”
This single follows a few other hit tracks including “Wall F—K,” “Smoke Retribution,” and “Never Be Like You.” Check out the music video up above.
