No matter how hard we want to be faithful in relationships, sometimes temptations arise that can cause you to think twice. That confusing feeling is explored in Jamaican reggae star Romain Virgo‘s video for “Trouble,” premiering exclusively on Billboard today (Aug. 2).
Directed by Kurt Wright, the video tells the story of a taxi driver who is having complications with his lover and ends up picking up a female passenger that he fancies. As they drive around the island and make a genuine connection, the driver is faced with choosing infidelity or remaining devoted to his woman. Thankfully, he ends up making the right decision in the end. Virgo’s syrupy vocals in the background helps anchor the song’s message about love’s fortitude.
“Trouble” follows the 28-year-old’s previous singles like the summery uptempo “Now,” the bouncy “Still” and his cover of Sam Smith‘s “Stay With Me.” LoveSick, Virgo’s third album, became the singer’s first record to peak at No. 1 on Billboard’s Reggae Albums chart following its March release.
“Trouble comes across our paths every so often. Especially as men, we’re known to be typically weak to the ladies who sometimes take full advantage and go the extra mile to get our attention. At times we give in and we’re left with regret,” Virgo tells Billboard about the song. “We wanted the video to give a different twist to the song because the truth is it’s not always about the physical attraction, but rather the unexpected, innocent moments that spark a crazy connection that’s indescribable.”
