MNEK has released the music video for his new single Tongue and it’s a colourful affair.

The clip sees the singer, songwriter and producer hosting a dinner party. It was directed by Bradley & Pablo (Charli XCX, Frank Ocean, Migos, Cardi B) and premiered on Noisey.

 

‘Bradley & Pablo hit me up on Instagram around the time I was finishing the album and I was already a huuuuuge fan of their work, so it really was amazing to get to collaborate with them for the Tongue video. It’s set at a dinner party and alternates between reality and fantasy to capture this unspoken tension between me and this guy. I wanted to challenge black masculinity in a fun and sassy way. I’m dancing in the video, which I’m excited about! I also got to have my friends in it, like Becky Hill, A*M*E and K Stewart for the dinner party! it’s my favourite video, and I had the best time shooting it!’ MNEK explains.

Tongue is taken from MNEK’s upcoming debut solo album, which is due for release later this year. Tongue received its world premiere on Radio 1 as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record.

The song has been described as ‘sounding like Bobby Brown’s creative peak reinterpreted through the technicolour glow and wit of RuPaul’s Drag Race’ and it’s sure to establish MNEK as one of the hottest stars of 2018.

23-year-old MNEK has written and produced for artists such as Beyoncé, Dua Lipa, Little Mix, Madonna, Diplo, MØ, Rudimental, Julia Michaels and Stormzy.
