Soulful Italian singer Nina Zilli has unveiled the official music video for her single Ti amo mi uccidi.
Ti amo mi uccidi (“I love you, you kill me”) is an upbeat tune with English and Italian lyrics.
In the accompanying music video, we see how Nina Zilli (Eurovision 2012) takes revenge on – and eventually says goodbye to – a selfish unfaithful lover who doesn’t put any effort into the relationship. Besides showcasing Nina’s sultry voice and sense of style, we get to see that she can swing a baseball bat like a pro!
As Nina Zilli expresses in the song:
I love you, you kill me. I die, you laugh. You ask for forgiveness, do you remember who I am?
I love you, you kill me. I die, you laugh. You ask for forgiveness, you take me for an ass!
Ti amo mi uccidi is taken from Nina Zilli’s latest album Modern Art, which was originally released in September 2017. A special edition of the album, including Nina’s Sanremo Music Festival 2018 entry Senza appartenere and an unplugged version of the song 1XUnAttimo, became available in 2018.
The music video for Ti amo mi uccidi, filmed in the region Puglia, was directed by Fabrizio Conte and Mauro Russo, director of photography was Angelo Stramaglia.
