Icona Pop – “Girlfriend” Video
After a triumphant run on the back of the delirious electro-pop anthem “I Love It,” Swedish duo Icona Pop are set to release a full-length LP, with the existentially affirmative title This Is … Icona Pop. This single, “Girlfriend,” came on 6/4, so it may make the This Is… cut, or it may be a glorified stopgap. “Girlfriend”‘s hook is pure Tupac (indeed he is one of this track’s 11 credited writers), the production is pure lite-EDM endorphin, and the lyric is for the girls (and the Girls.) In the video, the two are Thelma & Louise-ing it on trains, and in front of lasers, across the countryside. You can watch it here:
