“Big Time Sensuality” is a song by Icelandic singer Björk, released as the fourth single from her 1993 album Debut. Written by Björk and staple collaborator Nellee Hooper and produced by Hooper, “Big Time Sensuality” is a house-influenced song that helped boost Björk’s popularity worldwide, particularly the U.S., where she charted for the first time.
The lyrics deal with her relation with her friends and Hooper. The song features house grooves and electronic bass-sounds. The single release was actually the “Fluke Minimix”, which is a mix by Fluke, and the song was performed in this version on various occasions, including the inaugural MTV Europe Music Awards. Critics praised the song and the remix calling them “saucy” and commenting on their house and pop flavors.
A different edit of the Fluke remix was featured in the music video for the song, directed by Stéphane Sednaoui, in which Björk dances and sings on a truck throughout New York City. The video was praised by critics and fans and received heavy rotation on MTV channels.
The video edit of the Fluke remix was also featured in Björk’s Greatest Hits.
