Snakehips and MØ reveal official video for ‘Don’t Leave’
Published on 19 January 2017
Acclaimed UK production duo Snakehips and Danish pop sensation MØ have revealed the evocative video for new single ‘Don’t Leave’.
Starring MØ as the main protagonist, the colourfully-shot short film follows the emotional highs and lows of a relationship falling apart. Echoing the sentiment of the lyrics, the video shows the importance of knowing when to let go.
The pair’s standout production style shines through on the single; a rolling RnB style beat underpins their trademark warm chords and clipped, pitched up vocal details. Paired with MØ’s distinctive voice and rousing choruses, ‘Don’t Leave’ is an emotive yet forward-thinking ballad. The relatable single has already had an incredible reception since its release just two weeks ago, having amassed over 15 million streams total in that time.
This new single is set to build on an incredible past year for Snakehips, whose most recent single ‘Cruel’ featured the vocal talents of bonafide superstar Zayn. They achieved their first top 5 and won an Ivor Novello for their Platinum selling single ‘All My Friends’, a collaboration with Chance The Rapper and Tinashe. Their popularity extended to their tour schedule; this year Snakehips played at the likes of Coachella, Lollapalooza, Glastonbury and Bestival, sold out headline shows at London’s KOKO and LA’s The Wiltern, as well as touring across America, Australia, Europe and Asia.
MØ is one of the fastest rising pop stars on the planet and ‘Don't Leave’ comes hot on the heels of her acclaimed hit singles ‘Final Song’ and ‘Drum’. The co-writer and voice of the worldwide smash Major Lazer tracks ‘Cold Water’ and ‘Lean On’ is currently putting the finishing touches to her eagerly anticipated second album, due for release in 2017. MØ has played sold out tours and won over festival crowds worldwide. Last Autumn she completed her biggest UK headline tour to date, including a sold out show at London’s iconic Roundhouse.
