In her new video, 19-year-old South London artist Lola Young performs “Pick Me Up,” alone in her bedroom. Her intimate performance of the playful track takes on a dark undertone as the video gradually descends into a kaleidoscope of unsettling imagery. The clip was helmed by The Rest (Slowthai, Kojey Radical, Joy Crookes) – the duo that directed Young’s “Blind Love” video. Billboard gave fans a first look at “Pick Me Up” earlier today. View the video HERE“Pick Me Up” is from Young’s forthcoming EP, Renaissance, which will be released on April 21.

“‘Pick Me Up’ is about love and the loss of it. It’s also meant to be a song about having anger towards someone but still wanting them regardless of how much they’ve let you down and not metaphorically picked you back up,” explains Lola Young. “The writing process of this was super fun, I wrote to a beat that my friends made (Conor and will/Manuka) and it felt super special. My upcoming EP is based around love and longing and being a young girl living in south London falling in and out of love. It’s a 3-track EP that will hopefully take people on a short but meaningful journey.”
