Video Review: Austin Mahone “What About Love”

Austin Mahone and his girlfriend hug in the ocean. They run on the beach. He takes a picture on his phone.

He licks his lips as he stands against a concrete wall.

Lit in sunrise yellow, he and his friends dance in a room with a floor-length mirror and pictures.

Lit in electric blue, he dances alone in front of the mirror.

She walks on the balcony of the motel. He and his friends leave their motel room and follow behind her. He leans against a mint green convertible in the parking lot. She ignores him as he talks to her.

He and his friends dance in a parking structure. She walks to the car in the parking structure and drives off. He runs after the car. Back at beach, she kisses his neck. He puts his hands on his head and walks away.

Rating: 2/5

Austin Mahone watches his ex-girlfriend talk to a member on the football team. As he passes by, he tells him that she doesn’t brush her teeth. The football player pushes him away and tells him to back off. He puts his head down. She was moving on, as though their summer together meant nothing. He had told her he loved her. In class, he tells his friends he saw his ex-girlfriend flirting with some dumb jock. His friends tell him he’ll find someone else.

In history class, he grabs the seat next to her and asks her how she’s doing. She narrows her eyes and tells him he has a lot of nerve. He says he ticked off. She turns around and glares at him. As the bell rings, he opens his mouth to say something but she walks off with her friends.

He calls for her in the parking lot. She stops and asks him what he wants. He says he wants her, only her. She says they were only together for a few months. It was fun but she’s not interested. He says the football player is going to use her. She says it’s none of his business. He says he’s just looking out for her. She tells him not to and let it go.
