Hailee Steinfeld released the official music video for her new single, “Wrong Direction” earlier today. The Academy Award-nominated actress and multi-platinum recording artist released the song on New Year’s Day and we featured it on our weekly “Songs of the Week” roundup last Friday.
The music video was directed by Alexandre Moors (Miley Cyrus, Kendrick Lamar) and Hailee leaves it all on the table in an emotional and vulnerable performance that expresses the message of the song beautifully.
“Wrong Direction” is the first release by Hailee Steinfeld in 2020 with a promise of much more music to come this year. Check out the video and let us know what you think!
