Lauren Jauregui released the video for her alluring, heavily-R&B-tinted “More Than That” on Friday (Jan. 18). The three-minute long video follows Jauregui and a group of friends as they drive to “Olympus,” a glittery, cool-toned and all-female nightclub.
In the entrancing, Greek-mythology themed club, Jauregui is dressed in a sheer turquoise feathered robe and lounges with friends as they watch dancers vibe to the confident “More Than That” lyrics like, “I know I ain’t right for tempting you/ But I just wanna see what you would do/ If I gave you a taste of what I do, just remember that I don’t belong to you.”
Throughout the video, we’re also given a detailed view of Jauregui’s Aphrodite-esque cover art for the single, which she previously shared on social media. The video, directed by Lauren Dunn in Los Angeles, was creatively directed by Jauregui as well.
The singer told Vogue that the video was indeed inspired by Greek mythology, particularly the goddess of love and pleasure. “This video is Aphrodite’s visit to Earth,” Jauregui wrote in the email. “She finds herself in a unique club surrounded by the earthly embodiments of the divine feminine. They all are completely entranced by the strength and sensuality of the four earth goddesses before them.”
