Courtesy of eOne MusicDemetria McKinney‘s new music video for her song “This Is Love” shows the singer reflecting on happier times with her lover after a terrible fight.
The clip marks the directorial debut of Underground actor Rob Riley, who also stars in the video as Demetria’s love interest.
She says of the clip, “Immediately, I was like, ‘Rob should do this with me. I’ve shot photography with him and his eye is awesome and I thought it’d be interesting to move into a directorial space with him at the helm.”
McKinney adds, “Then I needed a love interest…I literally called him and asked him to be my boyfriend. He was like ‘Huh?!'”
“I explained the song and we each came up with the same ideas for the visual,” she adds. “So everything just lined up perfectly.”
Demetria’s debut album Officially Yours is scheduled to arrive this summer.
In addition, you can catch the star portraying Whitney Houston in the TV One biopic, Bobbi Kristina, also due out this summer.
