Lauren Alaina mixes romantic pursuits with extreme street sports in the just-released video for her flirtatious new single “Next Boyfriend.” The bold, poppy track is the first from the singer’s self-titled EP, which was issued October 2nd.
Directed by TK McKamy, the clip pulses with youthful energy as skateboarders and hip-hop dancers provide the background action and Alaina works some magic on her intended target with the cheesy pick-up line “You look a little like my next boyfriend.”
Alaina, who penned “Next Boyfriend” with Matt McVany and Emily Weisband, had a hand in co-writing all of the tracks on her EP and is currently working on her full-length album, which will follow the American Idol finalist’s 2011 debut Wildflower. Alaina, who had vocal-cord surgery in 2014, has said she wrote over 200 songs for the upcoming LP.
The Lauren Alaina EP also features “History,” which was specifically written to accompany ESPN’s promos for college and pro football coverage last fall. A release date has yet to be announced for the new album.
