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.
