Alexandre MoorsHailee Steinfeld has released the emotional new video for her breakup ballad “Wrong Direction.”
In the clip, we see Hailee in close-up as she sits in a bathtub with tears streaming down her face, as she wistfully reflects on a relationship that ended in heartbreak.
The song — which many speculated is a jab at her ex, former One Direction singer Niall Horan — touches on a partner’s massive ego and infidelity.
“Looking back I probably should have known/But I just wanted to believe that you were out sleeping alone,” she sings on the track.
She also muses about not being able to reach her ex-lover’s ego despite “standing on my tiptoes,” before revealing, “Everyone thinks that you’re somebody else/You even convinced yourself.”
Hailee released the song on New Year’s Day.
