Most workplaces don’t require midday dance breaks from their employees, but imagine if they did. All those restless desk workers moving freely and harmoniously together? Sounds like a dream. Or like Blood Orange’s new music video.
Dev Hynes himself directed the dance-heavy visual for “Better Than Me,” a collaboration with Carly Rae Jepsen off his excellent album Freetown Sound. It stars a diverse group of suited-up dancers performing tightly choreographed sequences in a bright studio space. Carly Rae, meanwhile, looks on longingly, rocking a bowl cut and some chic ’80s-inspired threads. It’s pretty mesmerizing stuff, and the perfect five-minute distraction to take you into the weekend.
