While Hunt took a lighthearted approach on the video for "Leave the Night On," this latest video is turning the drama up to 11! The full-length video will focus on the lead female we see in the teaser above, but -- keeping in line with Hunt's songwriting style -- "Take Your Time" follows the whole story from multiple perspectives.

UPDATE: The full video debuted on Friday. Watch below.

"Take Your Time" was filmed in Nashville last month and directed by Tim Mattia of London Alley Production, whose previous credits include music videos for Nicole Scherzinger, The 1975 and Marilyn Manson

Hunt co-wrote the hit with songwriters Shane McAnally and Josh Osbourne (together the trio also wrote "Leave the Night On" and Kenny Chesney's "Come Over"). In an interview with ETonline, Hunt opened up about how McAnally and Osbourne have made him a better artist.

"When we wrote for the first time, they were very open minded about going down roads that were different and their actions," he said. "That really inspired me to break down some of the boundaries that I was putting on myself as a songwriter and thinking, 'Well I have to fit this mold in Nashville because that's the way everyone else is doing it. If I want to get songs recorded, I have to stick to this,' and they really helped me to branch out and finally find that more authentic voice that hopefully I'm on to now as an artist."

ETonline caught up with Hunt just before kicking off his Lipstick Graffiti headlining tour. Fans who have seen him live know that Hunt dedicates a portion of his show to covering '90s divas, so we couldn’t resist putting him to the test. How well does Hunt know Mariah, Reba, Trisha, Whitney, Bonnie and Wynonna? Find out in the video below!
