JoJo's new video not only features the raw, emo feelings you get when you hear her sing about heartbreak, but it busts out a unique kind of dance -- finger tutting.
JoJo, in silks and satins, sweeps herself around an abandoned warehouse, singing about a painful romance. Dancers surround her, bending over backwards and lifting her into the air in a graceful, carefully choreographed dance. And, the coolest part? A lot of those people dance with their fingers too, framing her face with a kaleidoscope of digits.
Just last year, we saw the art of finger tutting in Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" video, with the king of finger tutting, J. P-Nut Hunt. Does this mean that it's the new thing? If so, where do I sign up for dance class?
"When Love Hurts" is one of three singles JoJo surprise-dropped on us in August, along with “Say Love” and “Save My Soul" from her upcoming album.
Apparently, while filming the "When Love Hurts" video, JoJo broke out into an a cappella of the song, which she gave a tease of on her Instagram. So beautiful! Hope they release that version soon too...
