“Mean What I Mean,” the excellent new dance-pop single from the UK duo AlunaGeorge, feels like an immediate summer smash, but it hasn’t reached that anthem-status yet. Hopefully, the song’s new video will help. In the clip, singer Aluna Francis, along with a crew of dancers, visits one of those photogenic abandoned California-desert theme parks that make such great music-video locations. The song’s two guest-rappers, masked New Yorker Leikeli47 and badass Chicago newcomer Dreezy, join them, and the whole thing is just a charismatic, fun, low-stakes affair with some great choreography and cinematography. Check it out below.
AlunaGeorge’s new album I Remember is out 9/16 on Island.
