LA-based singer/songwriter Donna Missal just dropped a music video for her single “Jupiter.” From the artist’s album This Time, the song’s visual is also Missal’s directorial debut.
The dusky clip takes place after sunset as Missal drives through her hometown in New Jersey. The singer’s face is covered by her long hair, as she sits in the back of a pickup truck celebrating her newfound love.
Later in the video, Missal also euphorically dances in a field and stops by a couple of local neighborhood spots to reflect on her happiness. “Baby baby baby/ I been waiting waiting waiting/ My whole life for someone like you,” the singer exclaims while she twirls and headbangs in the grass.
“To me, the song is about a first love,” Missal said. “I wanted to make a video to reflect that experience of feeling something for the first time. To me, that brought to mind the memories of driving through my hometown as a teenager, feeling all of these big feelings all at once.”
The release of this new single follows Missal’s television debut on Late Night With Seth Meyers last month. The singer is also gearing up for her prom-themed This Time Tour that kicks off on Valentine’s Day in Chicago.
