Watch Robyn's Gender-Reversing Video for "U Should Know Better (feat. Snoop Dogg)"

If Robyn’s recent collaboration with The Lonely Island on their hypnotically wacky “Go Kindergarten” reminded you of how badly the pop world needs her, then we have good news for you.

Today the Swedish pop star unexpectedly released a music video for “U Should Know Better,” a cut from her three-part album from 2010, Body Talk. The track features the then-named Snoop Dogg (now Lion), but you’ll have to look hard to find either of the artists in the video.

Instead of their famous faces, the video features two gender-reversed doppelgängers, including a young, blonde-headed boy who just might do Robyn’s trademark dance moves better than the pop star herself. Snoop is alternatively portrayed by a tall, thin, dreadlocked woman. Obviously the two strike up an unlikely friendship.
