The pandemic stopped normal life in its tracks and Berlin-based artist Lie Ning is well aware of this. So, what better way for the rising talent to celebrate the post-lockdown freedoms we are currently enjoying than with a track? Enter “Can I Have This Dance”. Ushered in by the hum of the violin, listeners are offered a narrative that focuses on the wonders of disregarding inhibitions and giving into electric vibes, one that is delivered by the artist’s mesmerising vocals. With the track also featuring some infectious production, it becomes club-ready in nature, making it all the more impressive.
Addressing his listeners, the artist explains, “‘Can I Have This Dance’ is a song to which I want to dance to, a song that makes me want to feel myself. So, with your consent, can I have this dance?”
And, what could make this ode to hedonism better than a sensual music video? Set against a sunset-hued dreamland, watch Lie Ning embroil himself in a contorted dance routine, one that pays tribute to the song’s all-too-relatable messaging and highlights the joys of pure feelings and emotions.
