Refusing to let himself sink into despair, the 'Waiting Outside the Lines' singer goes to a house party, meets a new girl and has some fun.
Two days after a listening party for his upcoming debut album, Greyson Chance released a music video for his second single "Unfriend You". The 13-year-old singer turns to his loyal friends to nurse his broken heart. He puts his record on, gets everybody on the floor for some silly dancing before seeking revenge to his former flame.
"[It] is an amazing record because, one, it's a breakup song, which breakup songs are always fun, and two, it's referencing social media, especially in this day and age, I think it's very important to reference social media in music," the Ellen DeGeneres protege gushed to MTV.
He wrote the song himself and recorded it for his upcoming full-length album "Hold on 'Til the Night". He recalled the creative process, "When I was writing this record, and especially when I was in the studio cutting 'Unfriend You,' I was heartbroken, so it felt good to express myself through the music and through the art of it."
Led by ballad track "Waiting Outside the Lines", the album is set to arrive across the United States on August 2. He's held the listening party for the effort at Hard Rock cafe on June 28, brought the Paramore's "Riot!"-inspired piano he designed for "Waiting Outside the Line" video to the bash. "Victorious" star Ariana Grande who plays his ex in the "Unfriend You" clip was among the guests.
