Robyn poses as a 12-year-old boy in her and Snoop Dogg’s “U Should Know Better” video.
We’ll just warn you right now: Neither Robyn or Snoop Dogg appears in their “U Should Know Better” video. So if you were looking forward to watching Robyn’s adorable dance moves while maybe/maybe not under the influence of Snoop Dogg’s favorite herbal “remedy,” then you might feel disappointed.
On the other hand, we’ve missed this song! Robyn’s dance-heavy “U Should Know Better” first appeared on her perfect 2010 Body Talk disc, so if we have to revisit this single via Robyn and Snoop’s bizarre video, which, by the way, features A CHILD, then that’s fine by us. Also, Robyn is a queen, so she has permission not to show up in her own videos. SHE’S EARNED IT.
Watch Robyn’s “U Should Know Better” video featuring Snoop Dogg after the jump.
In Robyn’s gender-bending “U Should Know Better” clip, we meet a platinum blond little boy who looks just like Robyn (and kind of like a young Justin Bieber? Anyone else see that?), and — surprise! — plays Robyn. After crazy-dancing in his room and biking around alone, our boy meets a skinny track suit-wearing woman with Snoop-esque cornrows, which, of course, makes us think we’re living in a world where Snoop is actually a woman. Got it.
Naturally, “Robyn” and “Snoop” become best pals and spend their afternoons looking after a greenhouse, which interestingly enough, appears to be Lady Snoop’s day job. (Unless it’s a greenhouse growing, well, you know what…which would make perfect sense.) In all, “U Should Know Better” is an adorable/ridiculously well edited clip, but we can’t lie: Seeing Robyn drop a new video just makes us want her to release a brand-new album that’s NOT THREE YEARS OLD. You hear that, Robyn? We love you, but IT’S BEEN THREE YEARS.
