Lambert posted a clip of herself, King, and three others lip syncing to Cyndi Lauper’s 1984 hit “Girls Just Want to Have Fun.” The pair made sure to let loose while filming the music video to their new song “Drunk (and I Don’t Wanna Go Home).”
The short video captures the two musicians having a ball while singing along to Lauper’s classic ’80s hit. Additionally, the duo are appropriately dressed in matching 1980s attire. Lambert is sporting teased, curly hair and colorful glam makeup as she rocks to the beat of the song.
As Lambert sings into her makeshift mic (her drink), King goes all out with her lively rendition of the track. King hilariously gets super into Lauper’s hit while also wearing gaudy makeup. She’s rocking pink hair and singing her heart out into a bottle of hair product. Lauper would be proud.
“Girls just want to have fun! Glam Jam on the #DRUNK music video set with @elleking @moanilee @tiffanygiffordstyle @johnnylavoy,” Lambert wrote on Instagram.
Miranda Lambert Teams Up With Elle King for New Song
On Monday, Miranda Lambert and Elle King first teased their newest collaboration, “Drunk (and I Don’t Wanna Go Home).”
The two country singers both posted pictures of the pair online with the accompanying hashtag #DRUNK. A few days later on Friday, the single and its music video were each released.
Entertainment Tonight spoke with the duo on set of their music video. It sounds like both women had a blast filming the lighthearted, fun video.
“This is probably the most fun music video I’ve ever done,” King explained to ET.
“Yeah, it’s easy and it’s been great,” Lambert added. “We both got to jump around and wear glitter, and we needed to laugh.”
The ’80s-inspired music video is based on a goofy wedding where King is the bride and Lambert acts as the maid of honor. The pair shot the video last month in Nashville, Tennessee. In addition to Lambert as her maid of honor, King’s actual fiancé Dan Tooker fills in as her groom.
While speaking with ET, Lambert talked about their budding friendship. She says they’re “new friends,” but they already feel like “old friends.”
“We bonded over actual life on tour and hanging out together,” Lambert explained.
This isn’t the first time the duo have worked together. Previous to their newest single, King joined Lambert on her cover of “Fooled Around and Fell in Love.” King also opened for Lambert during her Roadside & Pink Guitars Tour.
