Newcomers Runaway June —Naomi Cooke, Hannah Mulholland and Jennifer Wayne—have been making a splash in country music with their current single, “Lipstick.” Now the girls have drawn attention to themselves with the release of their footloose and fancy-free new video for the single.
The video, directed by Peter Zavidil, finds The Bachelorette alum, Luke Pell—Season 12 with JoJo Fletcher —as the male lead and at the center of the ladies attention.
“We wanted something carefree, about having fun with no worries and finding someone who makes you happy,” Runaway June tells People. “That Thelma & Louise vibe fit in with it, and Luke was more than perfect for that. He’s not really a love interest, per se, but more of a drifter we pick up and go on an epic adventure with.”
The trio has been front and center lately appearing at the recent 50th Annual CMA Awards as Carrie Underwood’s background vocal group and being named 2017 CMT Next Women of Country. “Lipstick” is currently in the Top 40 of the Mediabase Country Airplay chart, making the ladies the first female trio in 10 years to earn a Top 40 hit.
Check out their new video for “Lipstick.”
