Yessss! Tori Kelly’s brand new music video for ‘Should’ve Been Us’ was released June 22, and we have to admit — we can’t stop watching it. In the sexy video, Tori pours her heart out belting out powerful lyrics reflecting back on a brutal breakup.
Tori Kelly, 22, is a powerhouse in the vocal department! The singer dropped a new music video for her song, ‘Should’ve Been Us’ on June 22, and once again proved why we can’t get enough of this singer. While the video may be rather simple (not a bad thing), the message of the song is rather deep, focusing on a relationship gone sour, a topic many of us can relate with! Okay, so now is your time to watch ‘Should’ve Been Us’!
As the wind perfectly blows Tori’s curly blonde hair, the singer filmed walking around an urban area where she shows the world just how fabulous her voice is. In between her flawless hair flips, the video cuts to show her on stage with all her fans in the audience behind her. Tori doesn’t hold back either when it comes to opening up about a painful, past romance in the video. Just look at some of these lyrics that caught our attention:
Back and forth like a tug of war
What’s it all for, do I want it back
I still got a little flame for ya
Even though you drove me mad
Now and then, I pretend
That it’s you when I close my eyes
You got yours, I got mine
But I wonder where you are tonight
It should’ve been us
The music video is just the start for what’s to come with Tori. With her new album Unbreakable Smile that dropped on June 23, we have no doubt many more videos are about to blow us away. Tori took to Instagram on the album release day to share her excitement where she wrote, “clearly overwhelmed. what even is the day. lol 1 million on insta!!! album release dayyyyyy. and NYC show whOOooaAaa.” After hearing her voice, it’s hard not to immediately fall in love with this artist.
One person who was immediately blown away by Tori was none other than Sam Smith, 22, who Tori opened for during his UK tour. “I was grabbing people,” he said. “Her vocal ability is unbelievable. She’s a master of her voice, and this song [“Paper Hearts”] showcases that voice, which is like candy covered in honey.” Congrats Tori on this beautiful new music video and brand new album! We can’t wait to see what you do next.
