In case you haven’t heard the screams from crazy fangirls (it’s mainly us), Singapore’s second musical son, Nathan Hartono has released his first Mandarin single, “爱超给电”.
Following his participation in the famous Sing! China competition back in 2016, Nathan Hartono is now a nationwide household name.
The single was released exclusively in China on 7 February 2018, before its global release across all digital platforms on 9 February 2018.
The song is basically the mandarin rendition of his previous English single, “Electricity”. While “Electricity” is smooth and poppy, “爱超给电” is more dancey and catchy than its English counterpart.
The music video sees Nathan Hartono decked out in Japanese-inspired looks by Yohji Yamamoto, surrounded by colourful characters, props, and dancers.
The music video aesthetics reminds us of a mix between Lady Gaga and Snakehips. From a lady resembling the Statue Of Liberty, to the masked dancers, and the vogueing pairs, this music video has no shortage of interesting characters.
Also, what even is that Pig suit?
Aside from the weird and wonderful outfits, we also get gratuitous shots of topless Nathan Hartono in various parts of the music video.

If the thumbnail doesn’t make you want to click on the video, we don’t know what would.
We cannot wait for more music from Nathan Hartono. In the meantime, this song will be on loop.
