John Newman has released the music video for his new single "Olé," which features production from "Blame" collaborator Calvin Harris. The music is shot in a sunny Los Cabos, Mexico with Newman and Calvin Harris enjoying themselves on the beach, on boats and in a beautiful mansion. Like the lyrics itself, the video takes some potentially discreet shots at Calvin's former boo Taylor Swift and her new boyfriend Tom Hiddleston.
The video isn't anything that will blow you away creatively, but the shots of the Mexican coastline and the ocean might just take your breath away. Newman spends a lot of his time standing in a courtyard, singing "Olé" yearning for the love of someone who will love him back.
The pair are joined by some beautiful women in their luxurious coastline mansion, on a boat and at the beach, where they coyly recreate some social media and paparazzi moments that T Swift and Hiddleston have had such as the rocking chair moment here. It may be a tad petty, but also a little amusing. If you look hard enough, there are other parallel moments on the beach and elsewhere that can be found depending on how in tune you are to their drama. It is good for whatever new music the three of them have coming up soon.
The drama first started when some of the lyrics appeared online ahead of the song's release. The lines "My heart speaks, I ain't seen you or bin' with you for weeks / But I see online that you've begun to be a good girl and take trips with your boyfriend / Being attentive continue to pretend," were pretty obviously about Swift since Harris wrote the song.
