With their duet on "I'm Ready," pop superstars Sam Smith and Demi Lovato hoped to lift fans' spirits in dark times. Now, the two are giving those same fans a look at what went into making the track's stunning music video.
On Wednesday (May 6), the pair released an official behind-the-scenes look at the "I'm Ready" video, documenting what the two were aiming to create with their Olympic-themed visual. Throughout the clip, director Jora Frantzis walks fans through the vision of the video, which she says centered around reclaiming a space for queer people everywhere.
"For a lot of the gay community, sports was always kind of a traumatizing experience in high school," she explained. "So Sam thought it would be very empowering to kind of take over high school sports in the way that we did, and almost kind of taking the power back."
