Music video[edit]

The music video for Never Forget was released in early August 2011. The video starts with Katina waking up in a bright lit room, she then walks into a morgue and sees ex-t.A.T.u. bandmate Julia Volkova and herself dead. The two scenes interpolate. She walks down a hall where eight men are carrying two separate coffins. She follows them to a funeral where she tips a framed photograph of herself over, kisses a photo of Yulia and exits the building. She walks through their graveyard, taking a bouquet of roses out when she leaves. She gets into a car and scatters the flowers.[10][11][12]
