Lorde Plays Fatal Attraction in Disclosure's "Magnets" Video
Lorde plays a dangerous mistress in the new video.
If Disclosure’s “Magnets” video confirms anything definitively, it’s that you do not want to mess with Lorde. The 18-year-old pop star engages in a dangerous affair in Disclosure’s steamy new video and ends up setting fire to her mistakes (very literally).
First seen at a party, Lorde eyes the good-looking dude that she’ll soon be sucking face with. Unfortunately, this dude has a rigidly dressed wife — and instead of the wife getting revenge on his cheating ass, Lorde-as-mistress does the dirty work for her while whispering, “Let’s embrace the point of no return.” The husband's hidden monstrosities are alluded to (the wife has a black eye in one shot) and ultimately doom him.
“Magnets” is featured on Caracal, the sophomore album from Disclosure that was released last Friday. Miguel, Sam Smith and The Weeknd also are featured on the follow-up to 2013’s Settle.
