MNEK Debuts Music Video For New Single, 'Girlfriend'!

MNEK brings us the biting new music video for his single “Girlfriend,” and you can watch it right here!

Directed by MNEK in collaboration with upcoming director Jordan Rossi, the 24-year-old singer-songwriter switches up the well-worn cliché of the “cheating boyfriend” video narrative for the 21st century, contrasting one interpretation of what a conventional relationship should or could be and what it actually is.

“Building the aesthetic was one of my favourite parts of the process” Jordan explained in a statement. “Uzo (MNEK) had a really clear idea of what he wanted going in, so it was great to build on that and develop it further.”

MNEK is set to embark on a U.S. headlining tour that sees him touch down stateside for shows in six major markets across the country, beginning February 19 at Bowery Ballroom in New York City – Tickets are be available now here!

“This album for me is not just about making records. It’s not just about having hit singles. I think it’s really about rectifying that thing which, for me, I just never had someone to look up to,” MNEK says of the album, which also represents visibility for LGBTQ artists beyond just white pop stars.

Luther Vandross. Amazing. So talented. But he never came out because of fear of religion and his mum. I saw that and I thought I don’t want to be like that. The black experience is a different one. I needed someone to hear my truth from.”
