At the start of Chanel’s music video for “TOKE”, she whispers words that “SloMo” fans will no doubt remember: “Llegó la mami” — Mommy has arrived.

And boy has she. Wearing low-slung jeans on a shoulder-less top, Spain’s Eurovision 2022 singer stomps through a parking lot with the attitude and flair we’ve come to expect from the BenidormFest winner. Heads turn and, as she takes her seat in her car, the masses descend and help her get things hopping by shaking her wheels.

She then emerges at a red carpet event, descending stairs in red evening wear and a very white coat. The papz can’t get enough and she draws energy from their adoration. At one point she seems to slip, but turns it into a moment. She lies on her back and keeps on singing. 

Chanel — TOKE music video

 

“The night is sweet,” she sings, arriving at the party and voguing up a storm. She doesn’t lack for confidence: “I have so much flow, those who copy me are cheap.”

As you’d expect from this dancing queen, “TOKE” comes with a fantastic dance break in the final minute. Wearing black and surrounded by concrete, Chanel squats, bends, spins and reunites with Pol, one of her amazing dancers from Turin. 

The song will become very familiar to Spanish football fans during the 2022 Qatar World Cup. RTVE has chosen it as their anthem for their coverage this year.

For the music video, Chanel has once again collaborated with Kyle Hanagami — the celebrated choreographer and creative who helped take “SloMo” global.

TOKE is an interesting song, very upbeat and I listen to it whenever I feel sad.

Meh… The chorus is ok but deja vu, the rest is between ordinary and bad…

I think it’s just her showing a middle finger to her previous record company for stifling her career, refusing to release singles/album. In similar style of Raye’s ‘Hard Out There’ or ‘Black Mascara’. Even the video is full of symbolism. People shaking the car while she’s in it could easily be a metaphor for a group of executives trying to shake her life, not letting her drive/move forward. In the next scene she’s in the spotlight, everyone is watching her and she trips, which can be seen as what the begrudged executives were hoping for after she cut the ties… Read more »

Great contemporary spanish pop song. Not a Eurovision entry at all… But thats awesome – artists should go for the contemporary style of their origin, not only the Eurovision style. Big yes from me.

Hmm, not bad, but maybe lacking a little of the fire of SloMo, especially the chorus, which I thought was too subdued. But overall, it’s fairly decent.

Nah, it’s not good. It’s boring and bland. I had high expectations, I think she should work with other songwriters othan than the dude who co-wrote Slomo.

I can’t figure out all the things it reminds me of, but I like it. More than SloMo, which I never really liked anyway.

Chanel is not descendant from royalty and therefor no queen, not even a princess.

I wanted to like her new song, but this does nothing for me. Even the dance break wasn’t the wow moment she’s known for. Perhaps the live performances will sell me on it.

X2, she’s more of a live performer, so I hope so too

100% agreed. It was the live performance that sold me on SloMo, and on Chanel as a performer, the first time around. Let’s see if she can sell this one live as well.
