Another week, another music video walking the fine line between blatant nudity and art.
Opening in the kind of mansion you think of when picturing 90s hip hop videos, “Thinking About You” spends the better part of its initial minute following a scantily clad model through (what we believe to be) her luxurious abode. She eventually drops her top, revealing her breasts, and the scene then jumps to a separate scene involving two bikini-clad gals on a boat. I’m not sure you ever see Ms. Topless again, but if Justin Timberlake can call it art, so can Calvin Harris.
As the video goes on, the energetic music backs a tale of high seas hijacking, cocaine parties, and additional shots of mansion life that feels more dreamlike than anything else. It’s far more entertaining than the vast majority of videos released as of late, but what’s most surprising is how even in the midst of all the action mentioned above the song is what stands out as the true highlight. “Thinking About You” is a bonafide hit, and after this track reaches radio it will be inescapable. You can view the video below.
Calvin’s most recent album, 18 Months, is available now.
