Devin Dawson ended up in the slammer for the filming of his new black-and-white music video for his single "All on Me," but fans needn't worry: Dawson was only there for a short time.

Dawson went to the famous Tennessee State Prison (where the Oscar-nominated movie The Green Mile was filmed) to shoot his Justin Clough-directed "All on Me" video. The scenery of the former jail, which closed in 1992, adds an almost post-apocalyptic feeling to the video; Dawson says the prison itself is a character, of sorts, in the clip.

“The cool thing is there’s three characters: It’s me, the girl and the prison,” Dawson tells People. “It’s all overgrown, and there’s foreboding skies. The whole idea of the video is ... it’s like the world’s about to end, and it’s just me and the girl.”

Readers can press play above to watch Dawson's "All on Me" music video. The singer says that he "wanted the visuals to contrast this bouncy, summer-driving song.”

“It’s playing off of that first line: ‘Hey, I know the woes and the weight of the world can get you down, but don’t let it,'" Dawson explains. "So essentially, it’s like, ‘Hey, I know it’s the end and there’s nothing we can do about it, so I’m here for you, come lean on me.'"

"All on Me" is Dawson's debut single. He's set to release his first album later this year, but in the meantime, the song is available for download via iTunes and Amazon.
