Topic and A7S have unveiled the official video for their new global hit, “Why Do You Lie To Me” featuring chart-topping, GRAMMY®-nominated rapper Lil Baby. Directed by German influencer Dagi Bee, the clip stars TikTok creators Anna Klinski and Tim Schaecker, alongside appearances from Topic and A7S, who gives a powerful vocal performance. Exploring themes of love, loss and sensuality, the video paints a hazy picture of a party where reality and illusion blur.
Since its release in August, “Why Do You Lie To Me” has racked up over 26 million combined global streams. The track has earned strong radio support from BBC Radio 1 and other major stations around the world. Topic recently shared the Why Do You Lie To Me Remixes EP, which includes reworks from fellow German dance music talents Keanu Silva and viral duo twocolors, whose remix has already surpassed a million streams on Spotify. Topic, who has over 22 million monthly listeners on Spotify, speaks with Flaunt Magazine about working with A7S and Lil Baby in this feature.
“Why Do You Lie To Me” follows “Breaking Me,” the first collaboration from Platinum-selling German/Croatian producer Topic and Swedish singer/songwriter A7S, which has amassed more than one billion combined global streams to date. Following the viral success of “Breaking Me” on TikTok, Topic and A7S watched the single climb into the Top 5 of the UK Official Singles Chart and enter the Billboard Hot 100. The song topped the Mediabase U.S. dance radio and the Global Top 200 Shazam charts.
