In the new video for “Talking Body” off her 2014 debut album Queen of the Clouds, YOK alum Tove Lo can’t stop making out with a criminal. She and her jail-bound mystery man smooch in a variety of places — a club, a casino, a strip club, jail– but, as if the two live in a world where making out is illegal, the police show up every time they lock lips.
These two are like teenagers with raging hormones. They can’t get enough of each other, but they try anyway — until law enforcement officials get in the way. Listening to the chorus alone is enough to know just how much Tove Lo really wants this guy: “Now if we’re talking body / You got a perfect one, so put it on me / Swear it won’t take you long / If you love me right, we f-ck for life / On and on and on.”
But by the end of the video, when she steals the keys to her man’s motorcycle while he’s locked up in prison and rides off into the dark — probably to continue partying, we can’t help but wonder: Did she just want the motorcycle all along?
What do you think of the video? Let us know in the comments section below.
Fellow YOK alum Lorde tweeted Tove Lo a while back to tell her she loves “Habits (Stay High).” Lorde is a fan of Tove Lo’s, and Tove Lo is a fan of Lorde’s, which makes us wonder: Could a collaboration be in their future? We think so. Don’t you?
