Ingrid Michaelson’s newest single “Girls Chase Boys” comes from her upcoming fifth studio album, Lights Out, and it’s already become an empowering anthem against stereotypical gender roles. The music video pays homage to Robert Palmer’s, “Simply Irresistible,” utilizing male back up dancers that are donned in pink attire, bringing forth the song’s idea that both males and females chase each other in the search for love, while simultaneously breaking the pigeonhole of classic female back up dancers. The infectious pop song was bound to be a smash but combined with this cheeky music video, it’s become revolutionary towards changing society’s antiquated views towards sexuality. Lights Out will be released on April 15th via Cabin 24 & Mom+Pop Records.
