Country artist Onoleigh has once again dazzled us, this time with the music video for her latest single, “Make It Hurt”! The video has everything we could dream of; with Onoleigh’s breathtaking outfits and stunning drone footage of the Nashville skyline, what more could we ask for?

The visualizer features Onoleigh pouring her heart out on a rooftop at sunset as she confesses that she will never be able to move on from her relationship unless her heart is torn to pieces. Though her confession is heartbreaking, Onoleigh is unwilling to settle for anything less than she deserves.

“The music video for ‘Make It Hurt’ turned out to be exactly what I envisioned! My mind immediately went to an industrial look in the middle of the Nashville skyline with some dramatic outfits and camera shots. My team absolutely brought this song to life and I can’t wait for everyone to see it!”

"I feel so blessed to be releasing a song written by idols of mine! It not only speaks to something I'm personally going through, but can hopefully be relatable for others going through something similar."

“Make It Hurt” was written by some of the biggest stars and songwriters in country music: Maren Morris, Rhett Akins, and Chris DeStefano. The single is the second release from Onoleigh’s upcoming debut EP, which will feature songs co-written with John Oates (Hall & Oates), Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift), and producer Brandon Hood.

Onoleigh moved to Nashville to pursue her dream as a country artist after graduating from The University of Missouri, where she earned a degree in Social Work. Influenced by her upbringing and experiences, her main goal as an artist is to speak for the speechless and love the unlovable through themes of independence, confidence, and kindness.

Originally from Champaign, Illinois, Onoleigh is a Nashville-based country singer-songwriter who has written with Brandon Hood (Sam Hunt, Rascal Flatts, Jimmie Allen), John Oates (Hall and Oates), and Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift). She has opened for artists like Joe Nichols and Rodney Atkins, and has most recently been a featured performer at the Gatlinburg
