Today, up-and-coming artist George Maple is premiering the music video for her new single, “Lover,” off her forthcoming debut album, exclusively on V. The Darren McDonald-directed video, starring model and V favorite Jordan Barrett in his first leading role in a music video, sees the hot duo playing a couple on the verge of beautifully executed destruction.

Barrett gets into an intense wrestling fight as Maple poses, seduces, and sulks in their pain, wearing a leather crop top suit and beaded veil of course. Rain pours throughout as the twosome attempt to heal, enclosed by nothing but a big cardboard box. The track’s booming yet atmospheric production and her delicate vocals bring the video home, a neo-soul journey of regret and bewilderment.

On the video, Maple says, "I wanted to capture the chaos of a messy, complicated love: unstable, painful, uncontrollable. Love, love with consequences—a paradox of beauty and insanity." The video does just that and more. Watch:
