Sam Hunt just released the music video for his new single, “Breaking Up Was Easy in the 90’s” and the clip takes an unexpected twist with a surprise storyline.
Directed by Justin Clough, the video follows the story of a man who was just released from prison. His mother picks him up from the penitentiary and he proceeds to try to settle back into his normal life. He turns to his faith to help get him through but is still haunted by his past and an ex that he can’t seem to get off his mind.
The main character continues to move on with his life and even lands a new job, but things appear to get complicated when he has a run-in with his past lover. The video ends before viewers find out what happens next.
“Breaking Up Was Easy in the 90’s” was written by Sam Hunt, Chris La Corte, Zach Crowell, Ernest K. Smith and Josh Osborne. The song appears on the superstar’s latest album, Southside, and is the follow-up to the chart-topping hits, “Hard To Forget” and “Kinfolks.”
