MNEK Hosts a Very Sexy Dinner Party in New 'Tongue' Video: Watch
Pop virtuoso MNEK has made a career out of writing music for other people. The 23-year-old songwriter, who has penned works for the likes of Beyoncé, Madonna, Dua Lipa and many more, is ready for his own shot at singing and songwriting.
If his latest video is any indication of the singer’s future solo career, then MNEK is headed for superstardom. “Tongue,” a sexy bop about wanting to tell someone you love them, features MNEK attending a slick, futuristic dinner party, where he sits across a long table from his love interest. As the song progresses, so does the singer’s confidence -- sporting an all-pink outfit, he jumps on the table and starts seducing his lover with his dance moves.
In an interview with Noisey about the debut of the video, MNEK said he wanted to fully embrace his sexuality in the open. “Now I’m not afraid to touch on relationships and on my sexuality in my videos,” he said. “I feel as though it’s an important thing to put into my visuals, because those are the main source of visual content that I have.”
MNEK also mentioned that the actor playing his love interest in the video is straight and that he had a conversation with his girlfriend while the two were on set. “She was like, ‘Oh, so you’re taking my man for your video?’ and I was like, ‘Damn straight, I am.’”
