Hailee Steinfeld is a believer in bathtub cries, and you know what? I respect her for it. The 23-year-old actress and singer released her track “Wrong Direction” at the very beginning of 2020, and a week later, we officially have a music video. Steinfeld kept things simple and straightforward, using close-up shots of her bare face and teary eyes to convey the song’s heartbreak.
No, she didn’t reference her ex Niall Horan in the video like many fans hoped. Instead, I’d argue she showed something infinitely more relatable: a bathroom breakdown. Who amongs us has not sobbed in the shower? Let her cast the first bar of soap. I just wish I looked half as good with wet hair. Watch Steinfeld’s full video above to see her vulnerability shine through, and let it hit you straight in the feels.
