The music video garnered over 20 million views on the first day of release and chartered around the world topping iTunes charts in over 60 countries.

It holds a special meaning to me, as givenchy is a brand that has inspired me in many ways over the years. Matthew has also been a leader in both fashion and culture for many years. I look forward to the exciting ways to collaborate with Givenchy through this partnership”.
