Watch the YouTube sensation's magical new video before she resumes her spot on Selena Gomez's tour.
Nineteen-year-old singer-songwriter Christina Grimmie has quickly moved beyond her (highly successful) YouTube covers and has established herself as a recording artist to keep an eye on with her new album "With Love." "Tell My Mama," a standout cut from the full-length, has been given a brightly colored music video, launching exclusively on Billboard.com:
Grimmie says that her new single is "about a guy that I start liking in school, and he's sort of a dangerous kid, and I am the type of girl that tells my mom about everything"; accordingly, the "Tell My Mama" video, directed by David Turvey, lets that scenario play out, with Grimmie catching a ride in her new bad boy's red convertible and conjuring a concerned look from her mother. Eventually Grimmie gets caught in the middle of her mom's supernatural wrath and her guy's leather-jacket magic -- but luckily, the young songwriter has a few powers of her own.
"I've always wanted to involve something 'fantasy-like' in a video, like magic and powers," says Grimmie. "So it was awesome to have that be the focus of the video. The boy in the video is not a partier, a druggie, or anything like that. He has flippin' SUPER POWERS. Beat that."
