Today, PinkPantheress releases her new single, ‘Mosquito’ and accompanying music video out now.
Written and Produced by PinkPantheress alongside Greg Kurstin (Adele, Lily Allen) ‘Mosquito’ shows a different side to the musician. The track sees PinkPantheress embark upon a slight stylistic shift as she takes her customary opulent vocals layered over a drum and bass beat and fuses them with a colourful noughties R&B aesthetic.
Speaking on the track, PinkPantheress states “After a long wait my favourite song is coming out to the public, I’m so excited for you guys to hear something different from me in form of this song”
Directed by BRIT and Grammy Award-winning Sophie Muller (Beyoncé, Rihanna), the music video sees PinkPantheress immerse herself in London’s lavish shopping culture, spending money and time with her friends as she contemplates her desires. Alongside Charithra Chandran (Bridgerton), India Amarteifio (Queen Charlotte), and Yara Shahidi (black-ish), PinkPantheress explores some of London’s most renowned shopping locations such as New Bond Street, Tiffany, Fendi, Liberty, Royal Arcade. The music video is a throwback to 00s music videos whilst also paying homage to a staple trope in romcoms, the obligatory shopping spree and makeover montage.
‘Mosquito’ is the latest release from PinkPantheress in 2023 following on from the colossal hit ‘Boy’s a Liar Pt.2’ with Ice Spice which amassed over 1 billion global streams and peaked at No.2 in UK Top 40 Official Charts and No.3 in Billboard Hot 100. This year has also seen PinkPantheress release ‘Angel’, which was taken from Barbie the Album, and collaborate with Troye Sivan on the remix of ‘Rush’ which also features Hyunjin of Stray Kids.
