If history is any indicator, Tove Lo‘s third proper single from her debut album, Queen of the Clouds, is destined for success. Both of her previous radio offerings, “Habits (Stay High),” and “Talking Body,” performed very well on the charts, peaking at number 3 and 12 on the Hot 100 respectively.
Her third offering, “Timebomb,” now has a video to go with it. The clip, directed by Emil Nava, sets a stage up on the beach for a bathing suit-donning Tove Lo to perform her song.
Juxtaposed with clips of the singer are couples also interacting on the stage. The couples, though, veer away from just the typical man-woman romance that music videos often depict. Instead, we get a pair of same-sex couples, an interracial romance, and even an elderly couple portraying the hot and cold lyrics of the song.
