Mabel is fresh off her victory at the recent Brit Awards, and it’s just a matter of time before she’s in the running for another one. The music video for her new single “Boyfriend” is here, and it’s her most playful one to date.
The futuristic visual shows the British singer hanging out alongside her friends and using a futuristic simulator in an attempt to build a perfect man. The experiment proves as a huge failure, and the girls eventually decide to walk away from it and go on with their lives.
When she teased this song on social media, Mabel said that choreography and looks in this video made all of her “90s Aaliyah dreams come true”. She also described this track as a reminder that “wanting someone in your life doesn’t mean u can’t still be dat bit—“.
“Boyfriend” wasn’t featured on her debut studio album High Expectations, so it’s possible she’ll add it to its follow-up. It follows her previously released Christmas song “Loneliest Time of Year.”
