Kygo & Chelsea Cutler Share New Music Video for “Not Ok”
- Norwegian DJ Kygo and American singer-songwriter Chelsea Cutler have shared a new music video for “Not Ok”.
The song was released back in May. It was written by Daniel James, Chelsea Cutler, Kygo, David Brook and Leah Haywood.
The video was directed by fashion photographer Sara Bahbah, who also filmed Kygo's “Think About You” which was release on Feb 22nd.
The clip also features appearances from Dominque Perry, Alexis Ren, RuPaul’s Drag Race‘s Gia Gunn, Wolfie Candy, Trevor Moran, Jenn Im, Ashley Moore, Theresa Hayes, Sophia Ali, Sara Cummings, Sierra Love, Clinton Moxam, Daniella Beckerman, Charvelle and Maddy Crum.
“Our desire to stay connected has formed a dependency on social media, a dependency that actually weakens our connection. Curated personalities become the ones we focus on, covering our scars with cheap glitter and painting our bruises with fake gold by way of escaping from our internal struggles,” Sarah Bahbah said in statement. “This music film is a reminder to step away from escapism and step inwards to self. Although we are creatures of connection, many have learnt to play the characters constructed by social media. In the midst of all the projected individual experiences, sometimes the most authentic and calming thing that can be done is to check in with yourself, take a breath, and call upon the ones you trust.”
Recently, Kygo released Whitney Houston's unreleased song “Higher Love”.
He describes about “Higher Love” in an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1. “It was sent to me through my label and I think it was her estate. They had this song laying around and it was never officially released. I think they were looking for the right production on it. I got it in my inbox and I had the same reaction as you. Whitney Houston is this a joke? I saw the email about if I could make this work and I ran to my studio and tried to produce around this amazing vocal. This is definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity. This is a collaboration I never thought was gonna happen so I just thought I had to put all my effort into this and make it as good as I can.”
