"Body Talk Pt. 2" was released three years ago, but Robyn has just debuted a music video for a track off the record, "U Should Know Better". In the video, Robyn is portrayed by a blonde dancer boy while her collaborator, Snoop Dogg, is played by a young woman.
The video follows the boy riding his bike through the streets. He is then seen playing with dolls and doing Robyn's trademark dance moves in his bedroom. The video also gives glimpses at the woman version of Snoop doing her job at a greenhouse. Both meet and start an unlikely friendship.
For the music video, Robyn teamed up with "Dancing on My Own" choreographer Decida. In a statement, the choreographer said, "Hopefully the 'U Should Know Better' video sparks some laughs, but also thoughts on what identity really is."
"I kind of like the idea that we grow up in a transnational pop cultural mosh pit were you can choose who you want to be instead. All of this is what our 2FACED1 project is about, to know identity is dependent on context and therefore is something fluid," she added.
Of her choice to make a music video for the three-year-old song, Robyn said, "Even though 'U Should Know Better' was released a couple of years back on 'Body Talk Pt 2', I wanted to make this video now anyway because the song is still banging and we had too much fun with this video idea to just sit on it."
