Carly Pearce and Lee Brice just released the music video for their top-40-and-climbing duet, “I Hope You’re Happy Now.”
The Sam Siske-directed clip follows the story of ex-lovers who seem to miss each other even though they appear to have moved on. The video shows the former couple looking back at old photos of each other and even struggling with the idea of texting each other after the breakup. At the end of the clip, they cross paths and it’s revealed that the female character is engaged.
The video is extremely personal to Pearce and actually brought her tears the first time she saw it.
“It is as real and honest as the ‘Every Little Thing’ video was for me. This song is so personal and I wanted the visual to truly reflect that part of my story,” she explained. “I feel like this song is the closing piece to this chapter in my life, so the ending is bittersweet, but it leaves things on a positive note. If I were to run into this person today, my hope is that things would play out exactly how the video ends.”
Check out the brand new video below.
“I Hope You’re Happy Now” was written by Pearce alongside Luke Combs, Jonathan Singleton and Randy Montana. The track will be featured on Pearce’s much-anticipated self-titled sophomore album, set for release on February 14, 2020.
