Boasting an anthemic chorus belted out by Minaj and DNCE, the track displays an infectious pop hook that DNCE fans have come to expect and love. Minaj delivers a high energy rap verse over the song’s breakdown, giving the track a unique flavor, and expanding on the band’s signature sound.
DNCE first hinted at the new single on their socials last week with the help of social media super star, Doug The Pug, where the band posted an image of the famous pup with a phone number listed on his dog tag for fans to call. When fans called in to the listed phone number, the instrumental chorus of “Kissing Strangers” was revealed on the voicemail. That was followed by the official single announcement earlier this week, when DNCE and Nicki posted photos from the set of the soon to be released music video.
The band recently shot a lyric video, featuring Doug The Pug, that will be released on April 20th. A special behind the scenes look including outtakes from that video can be viewed on the band’s official “Kissing Strangers” Splash Page.
“Kissing Strangers” releases today via all digital retailers and streaming services.
