Throughout the changing scenes, Sofia rocks multiple eye-catching outfits from jeans with slits up the sides to a green sequin dress. Sofia’s style shows her character’s fearlessness as she sings about knowing the boy she’s about to have a one night stand with, insisting that she can get down to his level and play games, too.
One of the video’s highlights is the scene where the couple is lying in bed at night lit in blue and red lighting.

The romance and magic continues as they dance on a pier and drive through a countryside. Everything in the video is bright and feels like a dream sequence.
On screen, R3hab and Sofia show great chemistry and really play up the story. With lots of solo shots of Sofia, the audience is reminded that she has the power in this situation. Overall, the video for “Rumors” is a must-watch, especially for those who love fantasy and getaways. When it comes down to it, every scene looks as though it’s part of a travel blog.
