RaeLynn Re-Lives Her ‘Love Triangle’ In New Music Video

RaeLynn is showing fans a deeper side to herself with the release of the music video for her new single, “Love Triangle.” The song was written by the songstress, along with Jimmy Robbins and Nicolle Galyon, about the struggle she had with her parent’s divorce.

“When you’re a kid of divorce, that is your life,” RaeLynn told People. “You have two beds, you have two separate lives. The whole point of family is to be a unit and to do a lot of things together and it’s just not that when your parents are divorced. I think there’s been a lot of divorce songs out there, but they’ve always been about the parents. They’ve never been from the kid’s perspective.”

When the former The Voice contestant went into the writing session, she went in with the divorce weighing heavily on her heart.

“I was headed to a writing session and my mom and dad were arguing that day about really the stupidest thing,” she explained. “I got to the writing session and there were two of my dearest friends, Jimmy Robbins and Nicolle Galyon, and I started venting about being a kid of divorce. I was like, ‘You know what, though? I don’t want to be in a sad mood today. Let’s just write something fun and sappy.’ Then I threw out the title, ‘Love Triangle.’ I don’t remember who said it, but they were like, ‘Well if you think about it, you’re kind of in a love triangle today.'”

While the topic has been a tough one for her to talk about, RaeLynn hopes kids going through the same thing know they are not alone.

“I just think that this song is going to touch a lot of people,” she says. “My dad would pick me up every other Friday at 6, and drop me off by 6 on Sunday. Around 4 every Sunday, I remember him getting a little sad, because he wouldn’t get to see his baby for two weeks. I can’t imagine, when I become a mother, not being able to see my child for two weeks. That’s really hard, but that’s the truth, and that’s the normal for a lot of kids in divorced homes. They have to split their time and split their love. It really is not that fair, but it’s a lot of our normal and our truth.”
