Tove Lo Premieres New Music Video for “bitches” featuring Charli XCX, Icona Pop, Elliphant, ALMA
- Swedish singer-songwriter Tove Lo has unveiled a new version video for “bitches” directed by Lucia Aniello.
She teased a brief 15 second song clip, and a short behind-the-scenes video on Twitter.
Originally, the song is included on Tove Lo's third studio album "Blue Lips". It was written by Ali Payami and Tove Lo.
She released the short film "Fire Fade" following the film "Fairy Dust" last August, featuring original version “Bitches”.
When the song was released, she said of the song, "'bitches' is my cheeky nod to 'what if girls sing a song like this?' with this kind of lyric I feel like no one raises an eyebrow when dudes do."
This time, she created remix version with Charli XCX, Icona Pop, Elliphant and ALMA, who appeared on the music video.
Tove Lo said of her music approach;
“I choose to rub it in people’s faces even more. If you look at the record title, the artwork – it’s obviously done as a reaction to reactions. For me, it’s very artistic rather than just a picture of my ass. Obviously, that’s going to upset a lot of people – ‘why does she have to do that?’ This feels good to me. I’m not doing it because someone’s telling me not to, but I feel like ‘oh, come on’.
I’ve spent so much of my life creating songs and things so personal and deep. It’s about questioning everything in life. Yes, there’s sex and drugs in there, but there’s definitely a depth to it. I’m not just a random party girl. That’s what pisses me off.”
