Björk And Rosalía Wield Swords (For A Good Cause) In The “Oral” Music Video
Björk and Rosalía join forces in the music video for “Oral,” starting with Mortal Kombat poses and escalating into an epic battle. The video features impressive flips in what appears to be an airplane hangar turned into an Apple Store, and the duo later grabs swords, teaming up to deliver a powerful performance. The video concludes with them playfully beating up the camera together.
Björk described “Oral” as a “25-year-old song of mine I wrote and programmed inspired by a dancehall beat.” She praised Rosalía for her experiments with the genre and incredible voice, expressing gratitude for her collaboration. The artists, referred to as the “realest bitch alive,” are donating all profits from the song to combat open pen fish farming in Iceland. This includes funding legal fees for protesters and taking action to prevent the development of intensive farms that harm wildlife, deform fish, and pose risks to salmon’s DNA and survival.
The collaboration not only showcases the artistic synergy between the two but also contributes to a meaningful cause, emphasizing their commitment to environmental and wildlife preservation.
