Watch: Jenny Lewis, Serengeti share video for new single ‘Idiot’

The third collaboration between the pair

Jenny Lewis has once again teamed up with Chicago rapper Serengeti for a video for their new collaborative track, “Idiot.”

“Idiot” follows the release of previous collaborations “Unblu” and “Vroom Vroom,” and it revolves around a bass-heavy beat and sultry vocal lines. The accompanying Lewis-directed video primarily features the On The Line artist lounging in a bathing suit by the pool.

“These songs with Dave (Serengeti) start with a late night feeling and access to – because of where we’re at right now in the world – whatever you have in your house that makes a sound,” Lewis explains. “Or, I don’t have Pro Tools, so I use my phone, and I’ve got a little drum machine and a drum kit. Sometimes when I’m doing my vocals, Forensic Files is on in the background. That makes it onto the track because that’s just what’s happening.”

“Jenny sent the beat and it’s always a great joy, it’s fun to do,” Serengeti adds. “I wrote a small rap about a man who gets knocked out by his mom’s boyfriend and then reconnects with his high school girlfriend.”
