Doja Cat and SZA team up in a sci-fi fantasy for the “Kiss Me More” video. Alex Landi is looking foine as an astronaut who crashes on their home planet.
The song, crafted by Travis Scott collaborator Roger TK and Doja’s team of Yeti Beats, TK and of course Dr. Luke, has a breezy vibe that recalls both disco and her breakthrough hit “Say So,” with sexy lyrics — but it’s the video that has the more compelling storyline. In the Warren Fu-directed clip, “Grey’s Anatomy” actor Alex Landi is an astronaut who crash-lands on a fantastical planet where Doja and SZA are giant beings. He steers a kayak down a river where — this is when the Odyssey references come in — he is transfixed by Doja and SZA’s siren songs. As the dreamlike scene progresses, with cuts to separate scenes where Doja and SZA are performing on a bed, and he steers the boat toward a pair of giant lips, when the scenery suddenly changes.
It’s hard to describe, so just watch it. You might need to watch a couple of times to catch everything!
