In November, Tove Lo released the lyric video for “Are U Gonna Tell Her?” featuring Brazilian artist MC Zaac. The song appears on Tove’s recent album, Sunshine Kitty, released last September. Today, “Are U Gonna Tell Her?” gets a new music video.
“Are U Gonna Tell Her?” builds around a frenzied synth riff, and MC Zaac’s occasional high-registered interjections add tension. Tove sings the first verse, describing her desire to be with this guy. She sings with MC Zaac on the onomatopoeia-ridden pre-chorus, then Tove sings a delicate chorus. But its lyrics present the shame: they’ve hooked up, but he has a girlfriend… will he confess what happened? MC Zaac sings the second verse entirely in Portuguese, describing Tove as dangerous. It’s a short but hypnotic track.
The music video, directed by Alaska, reverses the roles. It starts with a couple entering a floating restaurant. The man is unpleasant, and it’s no secret why his date isn’t into him. Her eyes wander, resting on the busboy across the room. What follows is an ongoing and at times over-the-top tango between the two as they hook up in the back room then dance and kiss all over the restaurant. Do the other patrons or workers even notice? Meanwhile, Tove Lo and MC Zaac observe approvingly without getting involved themselves.
