Nick Jonas and Tove Lo Just Want to Touch Each Other in ‘Close’ Video
Subscribe to PopCrush on
After revealing that he’s got new music on the horizon yesterday (March 24), Nick Jonas delivered another treat with the video for his latest single, “Closer.”
Teaming up with Tove Lo, the video takes us to an empty warehouse where Nick and Tove are sitting on chairs that violently separate them whenever they get too close. Dressed in earth tones, pieces of their clothing rip off with every pull. By the end ,the two are left in their skivvies and released from their seats. While lying on the floor together, they can finally do what they’ve been wanting to do the whole time — touch.
The Tim Erem-directed visual then shows the two pop artists engaged in a beautifully crafted contemporary dance (who knew they had those moves?), which not only conveys their longing for each other, but the intense sexual tension between the two. By the end, Tove has her legs wrapped around Nick’s waist, and the two finally kiss.
Prior to the video’s release, Nick warned that the clip would be so steamy, we’d all need to hit the showers afterward.
This music video tomorrow is gonna require a few cold showers afterwords… @ToveLo

Meanwhile, other celebs have been sharing their thoughts on the hot video as well.
