EXCLUSIVE: First Look at R5's Brand New 'Heart Made Up on You' Video
By Sophie Schillaci
The band is getting into some trouble on the set of their "Heart Made Up on You" music video and ET has your exclusive first look! We were on set with the Lynch kids -- Ross, Riker, Rocky, Rydel -- and bandmate Ellington Ratliff while they filmed the video, and now we're revealing all the behind-the-scenes fun.
Expect a more streamlined story (with dialogue!) than what we've seen in their previous videos. Disney star Ross breaks down the premise: "We're sort of being hired, or we're in debt, and we're distracting everyone in the town so that my girlfriend and her boss can rob the jewelry store." This can only end poorly, right?
In order to distract, the band sets up shop in the street and plays an impromptu concert for passersby. "This is legit," says Rydel, "because we're supposed to be distracting the whole town and literally the whole town is here to see us."
"Heart Made Up on You" blasted onto Billboard's Hot 100 singles chart last week at No. 36. The video will debut Tuesday, August 5, via Hollywood Records.
If you're new to the R5 fandom, here's your cheat sheet:
-The band is made up of four siblings (whose first names begin with the letter R) and a longtime pal (who -goes by his last name to keep with the "R" theme).
-The Lynch siblings have some famous cousins: Julianne and Derek Hough.
-Singer/guitarist Ross Lynch stars on the Disney Channel original series Austin & Ally and in the Disney Channel original movie Teen Beach Movie.
-You may recognize singer/bass player Riker Lynch from Glee -- he recurs on the hit series as Jeff S. Sterling, one of the Dalton Academy Warblers.
-Their debut single, "Pass Me By," was co-written by hitmaker Savan Kotecha, whose other hits include Ariana Grande's "Problem," and One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful," among many, many more.
R5's sophomore album is due out in late September following the success of last year's Louder, which nabbed a top 30 debut on the Billboard 200 albums chart. What do you think of their latest single? Join the conversation online using #ETNow and hit the comments section below!
