Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa are realistically two of the biggest artists making music in the UK right now, so a collaboration between the two is, of course, a particularly huge deal for the Slug & Lettuce frequenting contingent of this island. A few weeks ago the pop stars teamed up for "One Kiss" – a track which, in manner of everything Harris has made of late, is a sun-worshipping, house-tinged barrage that will no doubt see the royalties rolling in once Love Island starts up again.

The video (watch below) follows suit, and sees Dua in front of a green screen, resplendent in literally every item of clothing you're likely to catch on your Instagram Explore page over the next few weeks. Essentially the video is a mood board, featuring cat eye glasses that appear to be 2018's clout glasses, a woman's suit, a chin-skimming bob.

To be fair, the video sums up the mood of the "One Kiss" – a fun loosie which attempts to totally capture the zeitgeist, not least in the acts it links up. The video also almost certainly enhances the song's staying power, promising a long, new life in selfie captions everywhere: "One kiss is all u need x").
