Watch Austin Mahone angry-dance through his “What About Love” video.
Austin Mahone’s come a long way in the last couple of years. After building a gigantic fan army (#Mahomies!) via “awww”-inducing YouTube covers and innocent clips for songs like “Hand In My Heart (Live From The Beach),” “Say You’re Just A Friend,” and “Say Somethin,” now Austin’s 17 years old and he’s got a lot of growling, sneering, and angry-dancing to do in his latest single and video, “What About Love.”
Watch Austin Mahone’s “What About Love” video after the jump.
Directed by Colin Tilley, “What About Love” kicks off with Austin and a gorgeous girl on vacation, where they’re laughing, taking beach selfies, and playing in the ocean. Suddenly it’s all over — Austin’s alone and staring forlornly in a motel mirror. Looks like his girlfriend just straight-up ditched him mid-vacation! Now all that’s left for Austin to do is angry-dance with his crew and follow his ex out of the motel, asking, “What about love? What about our promises?” Oh GAWD, we feel the pain. It’s all very *NSYNC circa “Tearing Up My Heart.”
Seriously, who just ditches an MTV Artist To Watch on a tropical vacation, anyway?? Well, don’t worry, dude. First off, there are plenty of other fish in the SEA (heh), and we can think of about 20,000 other Mahomies who would be more than willing to go for a dip with you AND take post-ocean selfies
AND touch your bulging biceps.
