September 28, 2020 Critic Jonni 0 Comments

On Friday, a new UK number one was announced, dethroning Cardi B's "WAP" which features Megan Thee Stallion, so now 24kGoldn is sitting at the top with "Mood" which features iann dior. "Mood" is a catchy number that has been doing the rounds on TikTok and so it's not a surprise that this has continuously climbed up the UK chart and various other charts around the world, becoming the artists' debut international hit. The lyrics tell the story of a toxic relationship and how their girlfriends' are always in a mood - hence the title of the song. It's one some listeners can relate to in one way or another, and if you can't relate as you have gone through life without being in a toxic relationship then you really have been lucky.

The accompanying music video, which has been directed by Sebastian Sdaigui, has slight narrative scenes with the performance scenes taking the spotlight throughout. Both the artists have a love-interest during the storyline and we can see her being in a mood and I get that it's not easy to showcase a toxic relationship and what they do show works well, there's just not enough of a narrative to allow the viewers to relate to the story being told. On the other hand, 24kGoldn and iann dior completely shine throughout the performance scenes, showing energy, emotion for the song, and their passion for the track, which totally makes up for the short narrative scenes.
