US country music sensation Carly Pearce has officially released the powerful and emotive music video for her latest hit single ‘I Hope You’re Happy Now’ featuring Lee Brice.
The cinematic clip is shot in split-screen in order to tell the lyrical story of the break-up and emotional feelings of wanting the other person to know you’ve moved on, but genuinely hope they are happy now.
It’s a standout visual and one that really portrays the emotion behind the song, and the personal meaning that Carly Pearce has put into the track. This is her most honest release to date and the video does the words justice.
Speaking about the clip, Carly says: “The first time I watched this music video I cried – 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. 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.”
Her duet partner, Lee Brice adds: “So excited to be a part of this with Carly… Singing with her is natural! This one was so fun to shoot!”
The ‘I Hope You’re Happy Now’ music video was directed by renowned director Sam Siske, who says of working on the shoot: “I immediately connected with the emotions and Carly’s story on my first listen to the song. Both parts of the duet tell their own side of the story and the split-screen narrative felt like the right device to use for the video. Carly and Lee were open to trying something different and made the entire process a really fun and collaborative experience.”
