The Ed Sheeran-penned tune has already been on frequent rotation every since it dropped last month, so it’s no surprise that the just released accompanying music video is as refreshingly fabulous as the song itself.
In the clip, directed by Michael Haussman, we see the 26-year-old entertainer rebelling against her corporate gig, unbuttoning her jacket and disrupting an office meeting, as she dances and frolics out of the building — all in reverse mind you. By the end, she makes her way back to her love, the one who broke her heart. It’s all a bit random, but somehow, it works?
“The video is basically about me not having any time, time isn’t a concept. It’s just going back and forth of me breaking free in an office building and doing the rebellious thing, kind of breaking out of my shell and singing about this guy who broke my heart,” Rita told 92.3 AMP Radio. “It’s an important song for me because I did it with a dear friend of mine, which makes everything more special when you do it with people you actually like and love.”
