Runaway June causes scene in ‘Broken Hearts’ video

Clip made broadcast premiere on CMT & Paramount Times Square billboard

Chart-topping all-female trio Runaway June is en route to the bar to help a heartbroken friend in the release of the neon-lit “Broken Hearts (Do Broken Things)” video. The clip made its premiere on CMT and on the Paramount Times Square Billboard in New York City today (Fri, Nov 11th).

Directed by Taylor Kelly, member Stevie Woodward leads the fun-and-free clip, jumping headfirst into the chaos of heartbreak. Radiating the fierce and feisty “Middle fingers up / Yeah the hell with love” spirit of their unapologetic new single, she acts with reckless abandon as members Jennifer Wayne and Natalie Stovall remind viewers, “She can’t be the one to blame (broken hearts do broken things).”

“Broken Hearts” was penned by Mandi Sagal, Steve Fee, and Sarah Lake, with Runaway June ultimately changing the lyrics from first-to-third person. Radiating the fierce and fiery spirit they’ve channeled on past hits like their Gold-certified breakthrough smash “Buy My Own Drinks” — a 2019 release that marked the first time a female trio had cracked the Top 5 on the Country Aircheck/Mediabase chart since The Chicks in 2003 — the band adds honeyed vocals and finespun melodies this time around to vivid storytelling that perfectly captures the chaos of heartbreak: “She’s been making out with strangers / Shoots tequila without chasers / Been crying in the club / Sweepin’ tears under the rug / She’s been dancing up on tables / Call her crazy and unstable / But she ain’t as messed up as you think.”
