Christian Lopez welcomed change when it came time to write for his upcoming third studio album. The West Virginia-born and Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter left Nashville for the West Coast to find himself and his sound. He’s all the better for it, too -- as can be seen in the feel-good video for his new single “Sip of Mine,” which Billboard premieres today (Feb. 12).
Directed by Nicholas Jandora and filmed alongside picturesque views in California, the guitar-driven song kicks off with Lopez making his way out of the ocean as he sings, “I’m gonna trade my pain/ Give another day another chance.” With delicate strums of an acoustic guitar and light percussion, he sings about his own resilience in the music industry.
"‘Sip Of Mine’ is about resilience,” Lopez tells Billboard. “If you're loved by someone, even through your darkest times, you can avoid the snap and come out that other side with a newfound love for the world and what it has to offer.”
