“5 Dollars” Christine and the Queens

Christine and The Queens recently released “5 dollars,” the latest single off her forthcoming release Chris, available September 21st via Because Music. The song arrives accompanied by a powerful video, by Colin Solal Cardo, who directed the video for “Doesn’t matter.” The full-length was written, arranged and performed by Christine and the Queens. It is the follow up to her debut record Chaleur Humaine.

“The song is so tender, so disheveled,” explains Christine. “It’s dealing with some kind of love – the kind you can buy. It’s a literal interpretation. A note for a shag – how surprisingly soothing this can be! The power ratio runs clear, like water in your hands; it becomes a pure gesture of love, of ultimate consent.”

In the video, described as “American Gigolo with a twist,” Christine investigates and takes on the role of the outcast, those who exist on the invisible margins, and is seen getting ready, though for what and for whom is left unsaid. “The closet is segmented into two racks – suits and bondage. From there, I wouldn’t advise to conclude anything too drastic, since you’re glaring yourself, in an obscene fashion – voyeur. The hustler is also someone that allows you to project onto him or her, before disappearing to leave you alone with your phantasmes.”
