A few days after releasing the danced up new single Hang With Me from Body Talk Pt.2, Robyn has unveiled the music video to accompany that very song. For the vulnerable dance ballad, something of a forté for Robyn recently, the clip is made up of tour footage.
Now I know I bitched and whined about Paramore’s Careful video being the exact same thing but as far as I recall this is Robyn’s first tour video as opposed to her third and it suits the lyrical content of being able to hang with her on tour as opposed to Paramore joking about on camera when the song was about paranoia.
Plus since Robyn is not a part of a band, some shots manage to depict her as a lonely sort of oddball which makes you want to hug her as well as suiting the vulnerable nature of the song. Plus its much better edited.
Apologies, I didn’t mean to make this a Robyn vs. Paramore post because as anyone who knows me will tell you that I’m a big Paramore fan and love all their songs but Robyn has quite frankly grown on me a lot recently. I’m finally starting to see the hype!
