"This girl is in an abusive relationship with this guy and you kind of see her struggle with, 'Do I love him?' [and] what she goes through, kind of rebelling a bit," Mendes explains in the video.

"And on the other hand, it's me and kind of this alternative reality where I'm stuck inside of this room, I'm kind of trapped."

"It's almost like I've been in here forever and I can't get out, as much as I want to help the girl, I can't get out of this thing 'cause there's something out there that's not letting me."

"It's almost like I've been in here forever and I can't get out, as much as I want to help the girl, I can't get out of this thing 'cause there's something out there that's not letting me."

"I'm excited to film the rest of the album's music videos actually now, after this," Mendes continues.

"It's going to be cool 'cause we're being very specific about details in the music videos and if people pay really good attention, they'll see a bunch of connections, which is exciting."
