Mitchell Tenpenny just released the music video for his latest single, “Broken Up.”

The cinematic clip brings the song to life through an emotional storyline that follows a couple who goes through a breakup. Things go downhill after they split and end up running into each other at what appears to be a backyard gathering.

The music video was directed by Justin Key and shot while adhering to COVID-19 regulations set by the state of Tennessee.

“I think Justin nailed the raw emotions between the characters in the video,” Tenpenny shared in a statement. “The tension in the fight scene is fierce, just like breakups can be. It’s a great three-minute film.”

“Broken Up” was co-written by Tenpenny, Devin Dawson, Kyle Fishman and Ernest Keith Smith. The regretful tune finds Tenpenny crooning over his ex and taking the blame for the downfall of their relationship.

“‘Cause I’m the one to blame about it/ I’m the one that messed it up (I’m the one that messed it up)/ Yeah, I deserve the pain about it/ Wish that I could give you up/ But I’m still in love,” he sings.

The Jordan M. Schmidt-produced track puts Tenpenny’s unique vocals at the forefront while telling the all-too-familiar story of a love gone wrong.
