Music video[edit]

The music video for "Boys & Girls" was directed by Tristan Séguéla and shot at French fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier's boutique in Paris, with Gaultier himself making a cameo appearance.[1][2][3] In the video, Solveig and Dragonette lead singer Martina Sorbara are seen dancing with several men and women wearing black and white clothes. At one point, Solveig chases Sorbara to the rooftop of the boutique overlooking Paris, where they dance for a while.
