The heart-wrenching clip follows a group of friends dealing with the devastating loss of one of their own, and the ways they made the most of their dwindling time together.
"We really wanted to tap into the deeper meaning of the song and how someone might face having their 'Last Shot,'" the country singer told EW about the PJ Brown-directed video. "We follow the brave main character and her friends as they navigate that reality and how strong they are in light of the situation." Watch ithere.

The big-screen blockbuster has revealed a new trailer last week, packed with heart-pounding action and thrilling special effects. As the trailer progresses, a slow, dramatic song swells in the background. As the action in the video reaches a particularly harrowing moment--Laura Croft dangling precariously over a steep waterfall from the wing of a crashed airplane--the song reveals itself as Destiny's Child's "Survivor."
This, however, isn't the peppy 2001 version of "Survivor" featuring Da Brat that the world remembers from it being played heavily on pop radio (and everywhere else) back in the day.
For the Tomb Raider trailer, "Survivor" has been slowed down into a sparse, minimal power ballad style, with massive jungle drums and big orchestra bursts to amp up the bombastic action happening onscreen. The new version of the track was crafted by 2WEI, whose work has been featured in numerous film trailers.
This isn't the first time a Beyonce-related song has been given the slowed-down movie trailer treatment. The singer and producer Boots crafted a downbeat 2014 remix of her hit, "Crazy in Love," for the original Fifty Shades of Grey movie.
Tomb Raider hits theaters on March 16. Check out the new trailerhere.
The high-profile couple has revealed to their fans that the little girl has been named after one of the greatest loves of Kanye West's life: his hometown of Chicago.

The high school student makes a point of asking both Swift's dad and then her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn, if they'd be cool with him taking the pop star to prom.
"I chose Taylor Swift because she's my favorite, and she is so genuine and down to earth and why not take someone so elegant like her to my prom," Modderman said of his creative prom-posal. "I got the idea by her interests, she loves corky jokes and creative videos and I put the two together. I would be so overwhelmed with excitement and hopefully, it would continue with her saying yes.
"My favorite song by hers s 'haunted,'" he added. "Just the whole production of the song and lyrics are very relatable." Read morehere.
Underwood updated fans on her condition by sharing an x-ray image of her wrist, which is now augmented with a sizable implant holding things together.

The initiative was announced last night (Jan. 17) at the Raptors' Air Canada Centre with a press conference held by Drake and Raptors President Masai Ujiri.

It will include six OVO-themed Raptors' games for each of the next three NBA seasons. There will also be new OVO-edition uniforms and an OVO-designed black and gold home court.
"It's nice to have the uniforms and the fancy court and the merchandise and stuff like that, but what was most important to me was just the call to action," Drake said at the press conference. "In this day and age, it's really easy to go on social media and talk about things that we'd like to see change or things that we think are wrong, then there's an opportunity, when you're presented with one, to be able to do something about it."

The three artists performed at the Route 91 Festival prior to the tragic shooting. "Live music events have always provided a safe space for fans to gather in a shared celebration of music.

"We believe it's incredibly important to pay tribute to those who lost their lives in these senseless tragedies and to remind musicians and music lovers alike that live music will continue to be a powerful force that unites us all." Read morehere.
