Danielle Bradbery’s ‘Friend Zone’ Music Video Wins Its Way Into the Video Shootout Hall of Fame
The clip's entry into the Hall of Fame comes after a successful four-week run in the Video Shootout, during which the former The Voice contestant defeated eight other artists' new music videos. The "Friend Zone" music video features Bradbery along with several of her friends, including Brittney Kelley, wife of Florida Georgia Line‘s Brian Kelley, having a summertime good time.
In its first week in the Shootout, "Friend Zone" won out against LoCash's “I Love This Life” music video and the Brothers Osborne‘s “Stay a Little Longer” clip, earning just over 80 percent of votes. In Week 2, the music video received more than 85 percent of votes versus Jason Aldean and his “Gonna Know We Were Here” video and Sam Hunt and his “Break Up in a Small Town” clip.
During her third week in the Shootout, Bradbery notched 63 percent of votes against Ronnie Dunn‘s “Ain’t No Trucks in Texas” clip and Cam‘s “Burning House” video, and to complete her run to the Video Shootout Hall of Fame, she won 86 percent of votes versus new music videos from Eric Church (“Mr. Misunderstood”) and Steve Martin and Edie Brickell (“Won’t Go Back”).
"Friend Zone" was written by Bradbery, Mikal Blue, Johan Lindbrandt and Shari Short. It is the first single from an upcoming new project that she says will be "edgier" than her eponymous debut record.
"There’s going to be bits and pieces of different things throughout the album, which I think it’s going to be really interesting and something new," Bradbery explains. "I’m really interested to see how people react, and [I hope they] like it.”
