Island villa

Stromae and Camila Cabello recreate the “Love Island” villa in the “Mon Amour” video | New

Stromae invites you to a private tropical villa at the island of love-inspired music video for the Belgian pop singer’s new remix of “Mon Amour”, which was released on Wednesday July 27th. And Camila Cabello is there.

The visual begins with an introduction to various contestants, including Stromae and Cabello, who are tasked with interacting with each other in pursuit of love and romance. Attendees indulge in different activities ranging from pool parties and groovy dancing, though the fun doesn’t prevent the drama from unfolding, with fights ensuing and luggage thrown from balconies.

Holding a kitsch phone shaped like a red lip, Cabello embraces her newfound freedom after the breakup, but she seems stuck in a love triangle between two guys. “Think only you can have fun?” she sings cheekily. “Think again / I’ve been boy crazy since I was 10 / I like him but I like his friend too (Shit, that’s fucked up) / Twenty years old, the first time I’m free / This summer, I belong to me.”

For the chorus, the “Havana” singer and Stromae sing a hypnotic duet in French, creating a heavenly harmony between Cabello’s soprano vocals and Stromae’s baritone. “My love, my love / You know / There’s only you / And that I’ll love you forever,” he vocalizes.

In an interview with rolling stone, Stromae said that “Mon Amour” is about an unfaithful man who “every time he’s in a relationship, he screws everything up.” Fittingly, in the music video, one of the contestants continually gets involved in the deception and betrayal of several others. Then, at some point, the participants float through the air and disappear, leaving him all alone in the villa.

The song is the final single and the ninth track from Stromae’s third and final studio album. Multitude. It was produced by his younger brother, Luc Van Haver. “Far from hating or making fun of reality TV, [the video] serves as the perfect prism to sublimate the human comedy that plays out in Stromae’s lyrics,” Van Haver said. “In these candidates, there is a bit of each of us.”

This collaboration is a dream come true for Cabello. She had Express a long-standing interest in wanting to collaborate with the “Papaoutai” singer, dating back to 2015 when she was still performing with Fifth Harmony. While visiting France in 2017, Cabello shared his love for the singer-songwriter during a radio appearance. “I know he’s not French, but I love Stromae,” she said before singing the lyrics to her songs, “Tous lesêmes” and “Formidable.”

“Mon Amour” is Cabello’s first release since the release of his album. Family in June, which debuted and peaked at No. 10 in the US Billboard 200. Two singles “Don’t Go Yet” and “Bam Bam” reached the top 50 of the Billboard Hot 100 charts and top 10 in several other countries. The former peaked at No. 42 on the Hot 100 while the latter peaked at No. 21.
