Actor Hailee Steinfield added ‘singer’ to her long list of talents back in 2015 when she dropped her first single “Love Myself,” teaming up with songwriters Justin Tratner and iHeartRadio MMVA performer Julia Michaels for the self-empowerment anthem.
The Oscar-nominated actor and Pitch Perfect star followed up her debut solo track by teaming up with another iHeartRadio MMVA performer, hitting the studio with DNCE for the 2016 single “Rock Bottom,” a song about falling in and out of love.
Now Steinfeld is again returning to the mic for another track that celebrates her listeners, this time around focusing in on her female audience. Dropping “Most Girls” at the end of April, Steinfeld has once again teamed up with her “Love Myself” director Hannah Lux Davis for her new single, keeping the female gaze firmly planted on Steinfeld.
The video opens with Steinfeld showing off her acting skills while on a date. After receiving the backhanded compliment from her male companion that she’s ‘not like most girls,’ effectively taking down an entire gender of people, Steinfeld bolts and leaves her date hopefully realizing that next time his compliments should not be based on insults.
Steinfeld spends the rest of the video showing off the different type of girl she embodies, with all the sides of the singer including displaying her toned body and new sponsorship deal with Mission athletic clothing.
Halfway through the video, a group of women join Steinfeld with positive adjectives like ‘Fearless’ displayed across their white tee shirts. Although this group is supposed to show a wide representation of ‘most girls,’ in actuality it’s more examples of very fit and feminine women.
It’s a missed opportunity that a song about female empowerment performed by a woman with a large female audience and starring in a video by a female director doesn’t have more inclusion with representation of its extras. “Most Girls” is definitely a step in the right direction, but we need leaps.
