Ashley Monroe Drops ‘Bombshell’ Music Video
Ashley Monroe has released a music video for her song "Bombshell."
"Bombshell" is an slower, acoustic song about those moments in life that hit you hard and leave you shaken.
“When you first hear the song, your mind automatically goes to a relationship, like you’re leaving somebody, but I just think it’s interesting in life how many different types of bombshells we have to drop,” Monroe tells Vulture. “There are so many. When my dad had cancer, my uncle came into a room to tell me he died. That’s a bombshell. And the older you get, the more you have to start doing them yourself, which is hard.”
In the "Bombshell" music video, Monroe is singing in an abandoned structure while looking out destroyed windows. While she is singing, a group of people climb to the roof of the building, where they pick up what look to be vases but are actually Molotov cocktails, write messages and throw them off the edge. When the Molotov cocktails hit the ground, they explode in a burst of flames -- the literal interpretation of what a news bombshell feels like. The video ends with Monroe writing her own message and throwing it off the roof.
