Pia Toscano’s single “You’ll Be King” has been out for a few months, but now the American Idol 10 singer has released a new music video for the track.
Directed by Robert Styles, the team chose a barren desert setting to capture a “haunting, mystical” atmosphere for the piano driven ballad. Actor, Cody Callahan, plays the hunky and brooding ex boyfriend.
“The concept of this video was to really portray and tell the story behind this toxic, dysfunctional relationship that I was once in,” Toscano told Billboard. “I was in the most vulnerable and insecure place in my life when I wrote this song and I needed to go back to that place and really tap into those emotions for this video.”
“I was all over the place emotionally at this time in my life trying to hold on to something that just couldn’t be fixed but I had to be strong enough to pick myself back up and be the one to walk away from it,” she said.
