Kane Brown and Lauren Alaina Serenade Each Other on a Cliff in ‘What Ifs’ Video
Kane Brown and Lauren Alaina traveled to the west coast to shoot the video for Brown's new single “What Ifs." The former classmates headed to the Inn at Newport Ranch on the northern California coastline for the music video, which is the first to be filmed at the picturesque location.
Filmed by P.R. Brown and produced by Steve Lamar, the "What Ifs" video opens with Brown pulling his car off to side of the road to climb a cliff. In awe of the location's beauty, he wanders through the woods until he finds himself in front of a wondrous ocean view. While he sings, Alaina is also navigating the location in a beautiful gown until she meets Brown. The jaw-dropping scenery only accents the duo's powerful vocals on the chorus.
"What Ifs" was co-written by Brown, Matthew McGinn, and Jordan Schmidt. It was producer by Dann Huff and appeared on Brown's debut album released late last year.
Alaina and Brown met as teens at their Georgia middle school, where they were in the same chorus class.
“He was very, very shy,” Alaina tells People. “We were sitting in class one day and I heard him humming, and I was like, ‘Can you sing?’ And you said, ‘No, I don’t sing in front of people.’ And I was like, ‘Well, you’re going to today.’ He was even better than I thought he would be. When he started singing, I was like ‘Stop singing! I want to be the best singer in class.'"
