DNCE Tries To Revive “Kissing Strangers” With Its Long-Promised Music Video

DNCE Releases Kissing Strangers Music VideoDNCE had been promising the arrival of a “Kissing Strangers” music video for what felt like an eternity. Despite the song’s lack of radio success, Joe Jonas, Cole Whittle, Jack Lawless, JinJoo Lee and collaborator Nicki Minaj have now followed through with the release of a fitting visual counterpart. A house party, creepy encounters with strangers and odd sexual tension between Joe and Nicki all appear in the clip.

The video starts with Cole finding love in a convenience store photo booth while Joe stocks up on condoms, booze and general party supplies a few aisles away. The two take off to attend a vintage rager with 7 Minutes in Heaven—played by JinJoo—and strip poker—enjoyed by Jack. As to be expected, dogs make up a solid majority of the party guests.

Check out “Kissing Strangers” below and let us know if you think it was worth the wait.

Other celebs like Nina Dobrev, Laura Marano and Joe Jonas’ Guess ad co-star Charlotte Mckinney all got their tweets out.

The singer has repeatedly promised to see her fans “in the kingdom” as she’s dived headfirst into her new era, complete with her directorial debut. But another big name artist’s recent decision about her fandom could have fans confused about how to get to to Halsey’s royal domain–and who the queen will be when they arrive.
