Written about the power struggles found in romantic relationships, ‘Young Heart Player’ is truly a masterpiece in sultry, ethereal pop. The music video for this song takes this one step further, taking the notion of power struggles and translating the idea to mean something more general.
It’s with this music video, which forgoes the typical nightclub or house party scene found in so many videos, that we can see Giovanna’s vision fully realised. It’s not a surprise that an artist whose background lies in cinematic scoring would inspire a visual spectacle such as this outstanding and unique music video.
The video consists of dancers and choreographers Kayla Lomas-Kirton and Duwane Taylor joining together in a battle of wills and bodies which sees an established power dynamic turned completely on its head by the end of the video. Giovanna’s team have released a statement saying that their intention was to reflect the power struggles found in parliaments and courtrooms the world over.
In widening the meaning behind Giovanna’s hit pop song to turn it into a more generalised meditation on the meaning of power, the video helps the song to transcend the narrow boundaries of pop music to create a song with a message which says more than your average pop song.
