The visual, directed by Zac Facts, illustrates a deviant narrative of jealousy and revenge between blackbear and his girlfriend. From its start, we find blackbear covered in scantily clad women, unfazed by his girlfriend’s concerns with his indiscretion. Fed up with his unfaithful ways, her revenge fantasy comes to fruition with the help of masked strangers, DVBBS.
The track and visual combination play on the insecurities faced in a relationship that result in a realization of self empowerment and need for independence.
‘IDWK’ debuted at No. 12 on the Billboard Hot Dance/ Electronic songs chart following its June 1st release and has since reached over 10 million streams. The single was first performed by DVBBS with Blackbear during his Coachella set this year and soon after in Lollapalooza Chile. Remixes from both Loud Luxury and Yellow Claw are coming soon.
Exploding into popular consciousness five years ago with a Dance Music pedigree and well-earned reputation for head-banging live performances, the Canadian duo DVBBS has rapidly evolved into one of dance music’s most innovative, globe-trotting, chart- topping acts. Comprised of Ontario-born brothers Alexandre and Christopher van den Hoef, the group broke into the major leagues with the smash single “Tsunami.” Since then, they’ve dropped a string of hits including “La La Land,” “Gold Skies” “Not Going Home,” “Parallel Lines” and the No. 1 breakthrough “Angel” — achieving worldwide success and over one billion streams. Chris and Alex structure their new music around sunny melodies, catchy vocal tracks and even feel-good guitars, connecting the dots between trap beats, future house and electro. They have performed with Tiësto, NERVO, Steve Aoki, Martin Garrix, Showtek, Sander Van Doorn, DJ Snake and have amassed over 20 million followers across all social media platforms. The duo have played the main stage at Tomorrowland (festival), Ultra Music Festival, and Creamfields, among others.
