SOFI TUKKER x Amadou & Mariam Drop New Music Video for “Mon Cheri”
- American electro-pop duo SOFI TUKKER and Mali musical duo Amadou & Mariam premiered a new music video for “Mon Cheri” directed by Cole Santiago.
The song was released back in May. It was written by Bynon, Amadou & Mariam and Sofi Tukker.
Also, the track is included on the Red Hot + Free compilation album. The track continues the non-profit's 30-year mission of fighting HIV/AIDS and supporting humanitarian charities through music, pop culture and global anthems. Proceeds from “Mon Cheri” and the rest of Red Hot + Free will benefit The Ally Coalition, Trevor Project and SAGE, three groups dedicated to LGBTQ equality, suicide prevention in LGBTQ youth, and the elderly LGBTQ community affected by HIV/AIDS and more.
SOFI TUKKER said of the video, “We absolutely love how this video turned out, it makes us smile the whole way through. Not only is it one of our favorite songs we've made with one of our favorite artists in the world, Amadou & Mariam, but it's in collaboration with and support of Red Hot, which has been fighting AIDS since 1989. In the spirit of supporting the LGBTQ community, we wanted to tell the story of a real life queer couple — and not just the young lover honeymoon phase — but also how love evolves, and transcends 💜”
