Dua Lipa has enjoyed one of the biggest freshman years in music thanks to her huge breakout singles “New Rules” and “IDGAF” and now the British singer has teamed up with Calvin Harris to continue her reign over the charts.
The pair released their Euro-dance track “One Kiss” in April and have now dropped a music video that will have you dreaming of summer days and sitting poolside. The breezy, disco-inspired track is more dance heavy than we’re used to hearing from Lipa, showing her deep vocals and smooth delivery lends itself to a variety of genres.
The sleek new video reflects the songs easy going attitude, drawing inspiration from Harris’ 2017 star-studded video for “Feels,” which featured Katy Perry, Pharrell, and Big Sean lounging on a beautiful deserted island. For “One Kiss,” Lipa commands the camera throughout, dressed in a number of sparkling gowns, bathing suits and oversized coats. Backed by dancers for much of the video, Lipa performs on a soundstage that features the beach, a pool, the pyramids, and for a few shots, a tuxedo-clad Harris, who stands in as a waiter.
Bright pops of colour used for the ensembles of Lipa and her dancers, as well as human-sized flowers swaying with dancers, give way to hazy filters that make the viewer feel like they’re basking in the heat of the summer. If there was ever a music video that could give the viewer a tan just by watching, it’s Dua Lipa and Calvin Harris’ “One Kiss.”
Prepare to hear “One Kiss” dominate radio play all summer long.
