Florence Pugh On Starring In New Rachel Chinouriri Video: Watch
Florence Pugh has spoken about her starring role in the video for Rachel Chinouriri‘s new single Never Need Me.
The single is taken from Chinouriri’s forthcoming debut album What A Devastating Turn Of Events, which will be released on 3 May via Parlophone/Atlas Artists and is available for pre-order now.
In a behind-the-scenes video, Pugh explained how she and Chinouriri crossed paths. “Recently I was in LA and I was listening to her songs and I thought, ‘You know what, I’m actually going to reach out to this amazing artist’.
“And I just said ‘Thank you for making my day today’ and then she replied and said she was also a fan. Then this idea came that I was in her music video.”
Chinouriri was just as complimentary about the Hollywood star, “She’s an absolute babe. “She’s a queen, she’s got an infectious laugh. She’s also just really funny. We just had the best time hanging out generally. That shoot was probably not just the highlight of my career but also my life. It was just the best day.”
Chinouriri wrote about Never Need Me in a press release: “I made this song with a sense of heartbreak but empowerment. It’s about taking your power back the moment you realise that helping someone is actually hurting you because they aren’t willing to change.
“Sometimes you end up enabling someone instead of actually helping them and carrying their load is tough. Never Need Me is the moment you wish them well but you can’t continue to harm yourself by helping them. It’s always a tough decision to make but once you make it, it’s a weight lifted off your shoulders for sure.”
