FRANKIE & Scott Hoying's 'Grease'-Inspired Video Is the Most Fab Thing We've Seen All Summer
"Everyone has a story where they’ve been ghosted, so it seems to be hitting a chord."
This past weekend was the 40th anniversary of the release of Grease, the iconic movie musical that starred none other than Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta. The film, which I and every gay boy probably watched roughly 50 times between the ages of seven and eleven, immediately became a cult-classic and international sensation.
In honor of the movie's anniversary, pop-singer FRANKIE and Pentatonix/Superfruit heartthrob Scott Hoying released a video for their single, entitled "Ghost." The song playfully modernizes the script of Grease while also adding a little bit of gender role-reversal.
Ghosting, for those of you who have been privileged enough not to experience, is when a prospective partner stops returning your calls and texts for no apparent reason.
"Sometimes you get scared to put out a song and just hope people relate to it," FRANKIE told Billboard. "But everyone has a story where they’ve been ghosted, so it seems to be hitting a chord."
"I thought the song was so sick and said I’d love to sing on it," Scott said. "I went to the studio within the next two weeks and laid down my vocals, we ended up falling in love with the whole thing."
