"We need love to break through if we are going to come together."

TobyMac explores the power of love and compassion in the face of adversity in his new video for "Love Broke Thru" with a timely approach to eternal subject matter. 

The Eric Welch-directed video tackles the subject of protest over police violence around the country and is premiering exclusively with Billboard. It shows a young man grappling with his anger amidst his grandfather's calls for peace. 

"When we started working on the concept for this video we were reminded daily about how divided our nation is," TobyMac tells Billboard. "We didn't want to make just another pretty music video." 

TobyMac continued, "The song was written about how God broke through in my life and we thought the video could be a symbolic picture of how we need God to break through and heal our divided nation. There are a lot of voices out there saying which way we should go and a lot of dialogue needs to happen but at the end of the day, we need love to break through if we are going to come together."
