On Monday, moments after the 17-year-old premiered his latest clip, he stopped by for "Live From MTV," telling a crowd of his biggest Mahomies the concept behind the video.
"It's me kinda singing to this girl, but it has a lot of flashbacks," Mahone said. "So it's me remembering all the times we had ... there are a lot of good scenes, me in the garage at the motel — it's just a cool video."
Mahone teamed up with famed director Colin Tilley, who has worked with a host of big-name artists, including Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj and Chris Brown. Yet what's equally impressive about Mahone's latest effort is his choreography.
"Every video I've done, I've done more and more dancing," Mahone said. "And I think the more videos I do in the future, the dancing is just going to get better and more challenging."
There's one thing that won't get any easier, however: dancing with his beanie hat, especially when, as was the case with "What About Love," he's shooting in the Miami heat.
"It was tough," Mahone said of dancing in his hat. "I definitely lost a couple pounds that day. Just gotta look good."
