Haley Reinhart Can’t Help Falling In Love Music Video
American Idol singer, Haley Reinhart, and her fellow season 10 alum, Casey Abrams are featured in a new “Can’t Help Falling in Love” music video.
The song went viral after it was featured in an Extra gum commercial, “The Story of Sarah and Juan.”
According to Billboard, which premiered the video, the song “has already sold 46,000 units, amassed 3.2 million streams on Spotify, and is No. 1 on Spotify’s Global viral chart. The campaign is still growing, with 86 million views via Facebook and more than 12 million views on YouTube.”
“It brings me so much joy in knowing I can be the voice that helps bring this breathtaking love story to life,” Haley told Billboard. “This video captures raw emotion and intimacy that I hope people can connect with. Happy to have my musical soulmate, Casey Abrams, playing alongside of me on keys as well.”
“It was very organic,” Haley said about recording the vocal, with Casey on piano. “We were in an intimate setting in the room, and we had candles and he was playing and we really had to make sure that we were in sync, timing-wise, so we had to be able to look at each other and kind of feed off each other’s energy and rhythm, so it was nice.”
As far as what’s next for Haley, she is currently touring with Postmodern Jukebox (along with Casey and season 14’a Joey Cook) and did animated voice work for the Netflix series F Is For Family, debuting Dec. 18. She has been working on original music, due out in the early spring.
“I am really excited to put new music out. It has been kind of a labor of love,” Haley told Billboard. “I took a lot of the demos I have had over a span of three years, and some of these songs were written back then.
“I took the original productions and had a live band cut it, and I now fused the two styles and production together so they have a powerful, meaty foundation.
“I just want to put out things that people will relate to. It’s all very sultry where it’s coming from.”
