RaeLynn’s Emotional ‘Love Triangle’ Video Tugs on the Heartstrings
RaeLynn opens herself up to fans in the emotional video for "Love Triangle," a song she penned with Nicolle Galyon and Jimmy Robbins that she says is her favorite song she's ever written.
In the four-minute clip, RaeLynn is in tears as she sings the words of the song while a young girl acts out what her childhood was really like — frequently going from her mother's house to her father's house — the child of divorce.
“When I was 3, my mom and dad got a divorce,” RaeLynn says in a press release, explaining what inspired the track. “I grew up being that kid who was relaying information back and forth, walking on eggshells, knowing that when I’m with my dad I can’t talk with my mom because it would trigger things. The day we wrote this song I almost canceled because my parents were bickering and I was pulled into the middle of it and I was upset. But I’m so glad I went because we created something magical that day."
"Jimmy and Nicolle shared their stories too — we all come from different triangles, I guess you could say," she adds. "It’s a powerful thing when a song raises its hand four years after you’ve written it … you know it’s special. I still cry every time I hear it. It’s my favorite song I’ve ever written.”
"When you're a kid of divorce, that is your life," RaeLynn tells People. "You have two beds, you have two separate lives. The whole point of family is to be a unit and to do a lot of things together and it's just not that when your parents are divorced. I think there's been a lot of divorce songs out there, but they've always been about the parents. They've never been from the kid's perspective."
"Love Triangle" is the latest single off RaeLynn's forthcoming first album with Warner Music Nashville.
