Tori Kelly’s ‘Should’ve Been Us’ Finds The Singer Handling Heartbreak Well
If you're typically the type to mitigate heartbreak with a pint of ice cream, sappy movie marathon or effigy of your significant other (careful with matches!), take a note from Tori Kelly—breakups don't have to get you down.
The singer, whose debut album, Unbreakable Smile, is now officially available for purchase (see what PopCrush thought of the LP here), has released the video for the its second single, "Should've Been Us," and it's proof breakups don't have to turn you into a depressed invalid.
Where its lyric video was a foot fetishist's dream, "Should've Been Us" finds Kelly touring through underpasses, exploring what appear to be abandoned airplane hangars and signing her name in paint-graffiti on a brick wall. And, in the event none of those successfully help her get over the pain of a relationship's end, she finds the support of an eager crowd that cheers her on through a performance of the tune, a la "Since U Been Gone."
"It should've been us / Shoulda been a fire, shoulda been the perfect storm," Kelly laments after spelling out what might have been. If we could be so bold, we'd venture to say we like single Tori—she's really got one hell of a hairflip.
