Icona Pop, Louis The Child release Weekend video

Posted on

Lest you forget it’s Fourth of July weekend, Icona Pop and Louis the Child are here to remind you. The Swedish duo and Chicago producers have teamed for party-happy single “Weekend” and premiered the song alongside a rowdy new video on Friday.

Not to be confused with Icona’s 2012 dub-heavy entry, “Ready for the Weekend,” the fresh track is a glittering electro ode to “treating weekdays like the weekend.” The visual trails Icona members Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo as they lead a raging, day-long roadtrip. They down epic proportions of vodka, pop their heads outside the sun roof, and have a late night dance session in an empty parking lot.

The song follows Icona’s 2015 Emergency EP. They previously stormed the charts with their 2013 breakout, This is…Icona Pop. Its Charlie XCX-assisted single, “I Love It,” marked their first U.S. hit, peaking at No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Last February, the duo teased new song “Someone Who Can Dance” live at the Swedish Grammys. Louis the Child released “It’s Strange,” featuring alt singer K. Flay, last October.

Watch the video for “Weekend” above.
