Parson James and JoJo have the kind of close friendship that we all could dream of, allowing them to freely discuss the trials and tribulations that they've gone through in their relationships over the years. It's what makes their recently released collaboration, "Dirty Laundry," so genuine and emotional, using their shared introspection to clue us into what it's like to deal with romantic issues alongside a supportive best friend.
The music video for "Dirty Laundry," out today, builds on the lyrics and makes us think about the secrets that have impacted our own experiences with love.
James, who found an international audience in 2015 after singing on Kygo's "Stole The Show," released "Dirty Laundry" last month. It was inspired by a man that he was dating during the COVID-19 quarantine who struggled with his sexuality and explaining himself. In a statement at the time of its release, James said that he reached out to JoJo for the collaboration because he "wanted to normalize platonic love and show an example of a gay man and his best female friend fully having each other's back."
