  1. This is bad. And not in a good way.

  2. All of it feels very... wtf?

    I know Dirty Hit is still considered independent and whatnot, but even without being on it she still managed to give us

  3. Well, it's definitely a succession of moving images that play to the (amazing) song, isn't it?

  4. This is a disappointment. Song remains 2020’s best, so at least she still has that.

  6. The video exists. That's an undeniable fact.

    Unfortunately, that's the only positive thing I can say about it.

  7. VERY that.
  8. It's not bad, it's just...yeah, I just had a feeling they were cobbling something rushed together after not being able to use (some of?) the original footage.

    The song itself is still absolutely brilliant though, so I'm glad it finally has a visual.

  9. I don't think the original footage would have salvaged this.

    It would still be a disjointed video made of random mixed and matched scenes of Rina moving around.

  10. I mean, it was always going to be shots of Rina vamping for the camera. I don’t really see anything wrong with that, it’s that type of track. But I wouldn’t be surprised if we lost out on some other cool looks.

    I really don’t mind this either, though. It’s clearly intentionally serving low budget dance video airing at 3am on MTV.
  11. I dig the “Life On Mars? but make it streetwear” look a lot.
  12. I kinda like it. "Crystal Castles - Baptism" but make it fashion.
    Of course the song screamed for some... High Budget Xtravaganza but hopefully they're saving for more later.

    The video is horrendous, especially considering what's she's been able to deliver beforehand;

  14. Umm...

  15. So......I don't know. I wish she stuck with some of the other looks. It is disappointing though after waiting so long for the video from the songs release.
  16. This is atrocious

  17. Yeah I really don't think the scrapped scenes would have made much a difference. The spinning logo and text graphics were cute though I guess...

  18. I kind of like it ddddd
  19. It's a no from me, dog.

    It could've worked, but it obviously doesn't. Disappointing, but not a big deal, the song is still great and so is she.
  20. I really hoped...wanted...this to be a hit. I thought it could be. But not with that video. It really isn't complimentary to the song. On a positive note: Rina looks fucking fierce, as usual.
