Tove Lo Heads to Brazil for New Video “Are U Gonna Tell Her?”

You know how fans always want artists to come to Brazil? Well, Tove Lo finally listened. Last week, she released a steamy new music video set in Brazil for her new single “Are U gonna tell her?” The song’s off her 2019 album Sunshine Kitty and features Brazilian artist MC Zaac.

The video opens with a woman having a date with a boyfriend she’d be better off kicking to the curb. He complains about her being late, about her outfit choice and about the waiter who’s not available to take his order yet. While he’s having his tantrum, his girlfriend locks eyes with the waiter and a passionate dance sequence ensues. They crash through the restaurant, dancing on tables and making out on the floor, all while Tove Lo and MC Zaac look on from a nearby table.

The song has a tropical beat, underscored by a synth line that sounds vaguely like the Stranger Things theme song. These things might sound mismatched, but Tove Lo has a talent for mixing unlikely elements and making it work. The lyrics describe her complicated feelings after sleeping with a man in a relationship.

“Our bodies tangled tight in the purple light // We’re making love, passed out, we look so damn good tonight,” Tove Lo sings on the chorus. “And Sunday’s shining in, feel the shame coming // You don’t belong to me // Are you gonna tell her?”

This music video follows the “Bikini Porn” video, released earlier this month. Tove Lo starts her North American tour on February 3 with a show in Nashville. Check out the video here:
