Emmelie de Forest shocked us all by posing in a bikini on the cover of her new single “Drunk Tonight“. But she takes her flesh appeal to the next level in the “Drunk Tonight” music video.

The video is split into three scenes. Emmelie is seen undressing, and then spends most of the video naked or in a bikini in and out of the swimming pool. She’s often wet.

Emmelie has clearly drawn some inspiration from Miley Cyrus and her video for “Wrecking Ball“. As in Miley’s video, we get close-ups of a tearful Emmelie giving us sad face. However, it’s not just a coincidence. The song is co-written by Maureen “Mozella” McDonald, who was involved in the writing Wrecking Ball too.

It’s not all about Emmelie’s bare skin, though. She and her co-star act out the story of the song during the video and, just in case you forgot how digital she is, Emmelie also texts her lover. It all ends with Emmelie throwing her iPhone into the swimming pool.

What do you think of the video? Do you think the stripped back visuals are artsy or a bid for attention? Comments below!

She looks like a sell out now but perhaps she never intended to be an ethereal artist in the first place so she’s shedding it now.

The nakedness is really unnecessary, fair enough if there was a reason, but there really isn’t? I mean, I’m not saying all women should get naked in videos if they have a reason, but there’s no artistic benefit of it in this.

It’s just distasteful I guess.

Song is really pretty though, really like the actual song.

The video slightly reminds me of “Blue Jeans” by Lana del Rey, but more lighter. Maybe it’s because the swimming pool.. It’s a good song, a little bit generic maybe, but it’s still catchy and of course radio-friendly

Molly Sanden and Emmelie both takes off their clothes… So sad that young talented women have to do that to promote album/singles

I came hear for two too reasons:

1. I like actually kind of like this song.
2. We want the old Emmelie back!!!!!

It’s a great song. But I think that the video pushes the quality of the song down. If she walked on a beach with a dog and sat alone in a room, without her ‘lover’ than you focus more on the song. Now people will watch this video, because of her less clothes. It’s a pity that Emmelie goes the way so many other artists do. She doesn’t need those kind of videos. She won because her performance was pure and natural, of course she has the right of experiencing, but I feel this style doesn’t fit Emmelie at all.

The song was actually good. I thought it would be a disaster with that name.

One can waste all the time one wants to comment on the video, mostly for whatever negative it may have … What matters the most to me is that this is a great song and would still be a great song even if she was dressed or on a set of a more boring setting … ears are still ears … and great songs are always great songs.
