Hailee Steinfeld urges you to love yourself.
A week after premiering her new song “Love Myself,” Hailee Steinfeld shared its accompanying music video. In it, Steinfeld bops around above a city skyline while cutting to scenes of people noting the #LoveMyself signs scattered around the streets. The video is glamorous and classy, something most 18-year-olds avoid when introducing themselves as an artist competing with megastars like Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj – who harness their overt sexuality in all facets while promoting their music.
The clip is slightly cumbersome, but the song remains a formidable champion in pop. In the Mattman & Robin-produced track, Steinfield sings about being independent and not needing anyone else – man or woman – and she can thank Justin Tranter and Julia Michaels for their songwriting talents. The two also wrote songs recently for Selena Gomez and Rita Ora.
“I love me / gonna love myself no I don’t need anybody else.”
