When Tinashe finally dropped her single “Superlove,” we were super obsessed. Now, the on-the-rise pop star has released the accompanying music video and it is a sensational whirlwind. If you weren’t previously aware, Tinashe has a catalog of television appearances so her latest visual allows her to fully show off her top-knotch acting skills.
Directed by Hannah Lux Davis and filmed in Malibu, California, Tinashe and her life-saving squad are tasked with rescuing a bunch of hopeless men drowning in the ocean. This video has it all: dancing, swimming, and running on the beach in slow motion. If the group choreography sequences don’t give you life by the end of this, you need to be checked by a doctor immediately.
While this is all fun and games—it even closes with a dance rager in the parking lot—perhaps the visual is really an extended metaphor for what happens when men are deep in the thirst? (Don’t act like you didn’t see those coconuts pop up...) No matter what the intent, Tinashe has now completely changed our definition of a beach bum.
Tinashe’s forthcoming album Joyride is slated for release this fall via RCA Records. Watch all the fun in the sun in the footage, above.
