Kelsea Ballerini, "Club":
Kelsea Ballerini throws a very exclusive rager in the music video for her newest release, "Club." The clip shows an intimate, stay-at-home party with the singer and all her best friends, who have every bit as much fun doing shots, playing card games and dancing around a bedroom as they would during a night out on the town. At the end of the night, the group of friends takes the party outside, where they jump fully clothed into a pool.
"Club" is the second release off of Ballerini's next album, following her single, "Homecoming Queen?" -- CL
Riley Green, "I Wish Grandpas Never Died":

Dillon Carmichael, "I Do For You":
In a previous lyric video for "I Do for You," Dillon Carmichael put the spotlight on his own love story with girlfriend Shayla. Now, in the official music video for the song, Carmichael turns the focus onto another real-life relationship: That between Bachelor in Paradise's Hannah Godwin and Dylan Barbour. In the video, the couple -- who are engaged in real life -- plan a wedding, complete with vision boards, bridal magazines and cake tasting.
At the 2019 SESAC Awards, Carmichael dished to The Boot on what it was like working with the reality show power couple. "[They're] two really cool people. Real funny, and just sweet, good-hearted people," he says, adding that -- in keeping with the song's theme of trying new things for your partner -- he became a fan of Bachelor in Paradise thanks to Shayla. "She's like, 'You gotta watch,' and finally she got me hooked," he admits with a laugh. -- CL
Molly Tuttle, "Sleepwalking":
Molly Tuttle captures an evocative, cinematic aesthetic in the music video for "Sleepwalking," a song that she describes as one of the most personal on her new album, When You're Ready. In the clip, we see Tuttle walking through nighttime streets alone, sitting on the side of a bed and later, lying in a bathtub full of water, without her wig.
Tuttle lives with alopecia (total hair loss), and it was important to her to incorporate that aspect of her life into the video." I lost my hair early on in life, and at times that experience has made me fear change and hold onto the past," she says in a press release. "With the visual, I wanted to raise the question of what it means to 'be yourself' again after a part of who you are disappears." The song also navigates other anxieties, such as the singer's response to climate change and the rising cost of living in her hometown of San Francisco. -- CL
