Late last week, Pink roared her way back with the new song “What About Us,” off her upcoming album Beautiful Trauma (due Oct. 13). Today (Aug. 16), the pop powerhouse shared the track’s music video.
The visual is heavy on hard-hitting dance moves — everywhere from a diner to a desert is turned into a dance floor — and also shows abandoned police cars, a helicopter chase and more. Throughout the vid, Pink largely plays up the song’s rallying lyrics that repeatedly beg the song’s titular question. At the climactic bridge, the singer stands on top of a car (wearing the same silver puffer she is wearing on the album cover), as if refusing to be ignored for a moment longer.
Yesterday (Aug. 17), MTV announced Pink will receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the 2017 Video Music Awards on Aug. 27. While the singer doesn’t really have to prove she’s worthy, her wild “What About Us” clip certainly adds to the justification.
