On Monday, Meghan Trainor unvelied her new music video for the single “Wave”, featuring Mike Sabath and directed by Matthew Cullen. We have recently seen the singer covering the Friends theme song, “I’ll Be There For You”, to celebrate the sitcom’s 25th anniversary.
In the video, the singer is like a boat on a sea of people that move her around and hold her up. The idea of a sinking boat also represents a sentimental relationship in crisis, which is the main theme of the song. Meghan croons: “Once my hands have reached the shore / You pull me back in / And I shouldn’t beg for more / But I don’t want it to end”, and she adds: “Take me like a wave / Pull me back and forth / Crash into my arms / Tell me I am yours”.
The clip has amazing visual effects. All movements are synchronized, Meghan perfectly follows the human wave and the rhythm of the song, while flashing lights represent lightnings during a storm. Mike Sabath only appears in a few scenes and almost gets confused (or drown) among people. The final effect is scenic and powerful, while the connection between the failing relationship and the sinking ship is clear and effective.
To conclude, Meghan is expected to drop her third studio album Treat Myself very soon, despite a number of delays and shifting release dates. In the meantime, watch her video for “Wave” below.
