Young lovers harness the power of a cosmic event in Will Hooper’s video for Dua Lipa’s single Levitating, remixed by the Blessed Madonna and featuring none other than Madonna and Missy Elliott.

Following a successful run of videos for Declan McKenna, Hooper now lends his surreal perspective to a hybrid of conceptual performance and sci-fi inspired narrative. DoP Rina Yang executes a contemporary and inspired vision, treading a fine line between fashion editorial and home video, every frame a worthy photograph in itself. 

Although Madge is absent, Lipa and Elliot bring a torrent of energy to the table, which creates a sense of unabashed fun and celebration. Brilliant and beautiful work.
