“The ‘Same Car’ video is out in the world today and I’m so proud of this one,” said Merlo. “When I was dreaming up a music video idea for this song I happened to be reading Colleen Hoover’s ‘It Ends With Us.’ I was deeply moved by the story. The song ‘Same Car’ is about a relationship being so amazing and then completely falling apart in the same place. I couldn’t help but think that even the most toxic relationships probably started out beautiful too.”
In addition to the release of the “Same Car” music video, Merlo is set to release an Amazon Original of Keith Urban’s “You’ll Think Of Me” this Friday, July 14th. Available exclusively on Amazon Music, fans can Pre-Save the song HERE.
