CMT HOT 20 PREMIERES THE VIDEO IN NORTH AMERICA
PINK NEWS PREMIERES IN THE U.K.
Proving that she’s “Got No Choice”but to love honestly, Brooke Edenhas released the video to her newest single. Directed by Ford Fairchild, the “Got No Choice” visual shows the happiness that comes with living and loving with integrity. The video premiered this past Saturday, May 8th on CMT’s Hot 20 Countdown as well as on ViacomCBS’ NYC Times Square billboard (pictured below) and on Pink News in the UK.
“Got No Choice” was written by Eden, Jesse Frasure, and Cary Barlowe, and is the third and final track in her reintroduction trilogy. Preceded by “Sunroof,” and “No Shade,” these songs are the manifestation of having taken the time to become confident in who she is and who she loves, marking the end of her four-year hiatus. For each of the track’s accompanying videos, Eden was able to incorporate her girlfriend, hometown, and even the bar at which she grew up singing, giving viewers an authentic glimpse into her life.
The songs and videos thus far have received with much critical acclaim:
“Eden hopes her latest series of songs will inspire people looking for silver linings in their struggles.” – Washington Post
“Brooke Eden is the queer country superstar we need and deserve in ‘Sunroof’ video” – Gay Times
“Powerful, expressive voice and catchy, radio-worthy songs” – People
“The breezy video, featuring Eden with her real-life girlfriend, feels as liberating, warm and lovely as the song itself.” – Billboard (on “Sunroof”)
“Brooke Eden’s ‘Sunroof’ celebrates love.” – NPR Here and Now
“Her bliss bleeds into every resonant, twangy note she sings.. it’s infectious.” – MTV News
Displaying her signature vocal swagger, Eden’s trilogy of songs allows listeners to follow each step in her journey from her 2017 breakout single, “Act Like You Don’t,” to her current outlook. The first song and video released in the trilogy, “No Shade,” kicked off the intertwined narrative. The wildly infectious melody and throw-back flare of her second track, “Sunroof,” co-written by Eden, Sarah Buxton and Jesse Frasure, draws as much from the Supremes as it does from Nashville’s current country stylings. The resulting sound reflects Eden’s newfound levity, and perfectly combines the artist’s soulful and country influences into a fresh new direction. “Sunroof” was the first song created with Eden’s refreshed sound in mind. Led by Jesse Frasure (Thomas Rhett, Florida Georgia Line, Kane Brown, Marshmello, Meghan Trainor, and more), the three buoyant new tracks were produced by him. The accompanying video has not only amassed over seven million streams, but also hit #1 on iTunes 48 hours after it’s premiere, beating out Silk Sonic (Bruno Mars and Anderson Paak) for the #1 all genre position.
