Why Don’t We drop video for ‘Trust Fund Baby’

Why Don’t We are quickly rising up the pop charts and securing their place as the newest boy band in the music world. This is all quite an accomplishment especially since the five-piece don’t even have a full-length record out; just a handful of EPs. On Thursday (March 1), the Los Angeles-based act unleashed the music video for their latest single, “Trust Fund Baby.” Unlike what the title may imply, the song is ode to the women who do not let society tell them what kind of person they should be.

The three-and-a-half minute clip follows each of the guys as they encounter young women who they find attractive and not just because of how they look. Instead of casting the clichéd music video girls, the clip features young women who are unconventionally beautiful and excel at things that society tells girls they shouldn’t be interested in (sports, science, mechanics, photography, skateboarding).

Watch the Jason Koenig-directed music video above.

“Trust Fund Baby” was written by Ed Sheeran while the track was produced by British hit maker Steve Mac who has worked with Sheeran, former One Direction member Liam Payne, and Clean Bandit.

While “Trust Fund Baby” is non-album single, the group did release another EP late last year titled A Why Don’t We Christmas EP. No word on whether the group will be releasing another EP or a full-length album in the near future.

In support of their rising star status, Why Don’t We previously announced their Invitation North American tour. The excursion kicked off earlier this week, with the band scheduled to hit the stage tonight (March 2) at the Rave in Milwaukee.

Due to overwhelming demand, second shows were added in Toronto and Los Angeles while third shows were added in Chicago and New York. The updated list of tour stops can be found here.

Why Don’t We invite fans to the ‘Invitation Tour’

After spending much of 2017 touring the country in support of their at-the-time new EP, Something Different, pop act Why Don’t We are ready to hit the touring circuit once more when the new year begins. On Wednesday (Oct. 4), the Los Angeles-based group unveiled plans to take their latest EP, Invitation, on the road in early 2018. The “Invitation Tour” will kick off on Feb. 27 at Bogart’s in Cincinnati, Ohio and conclude almost two months later on April 21 at the PlayStation Theater in New York.

Tickets for the “Invitation Tour” will go on sale beginning this Friday, Oct. 7, at 10 am local time. For more information about the tour stops and how to obtain upgraded tickets, head on over to Why Don’t We’s website here.

The upcoming tour will be in support of Why Don’t We’s recently released Invitation EP. The record was released to celebrate the five-piece’s one-year anniversary of being a band. The group officially launched on Sept. 26, 2016 while the latest EP was released on Sept. 26, 2017. Prior to releasing Invitation, the group released three other EPs; the Only the Beginning EP, the Something Different EP, and the Why Don’t We EP.

The Invitation EP has proved to be a massive success for the group, earning them the top spot on iTunes Store’s “Top Pop Albums” chart in six countries including the United States. As if earning the top spot on iTunes’ pop chart wasn’t enough, the band was recently featured on Billboard’s annual “21 Under 21” chart and have secured spots performing on shows like MTV’s recently resurrected Total Request Live as well as NBC’s the TODAY Show, MTV’s 2017 VMA Pre-Show, and the 2017 Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day at the US Open Tennis Championships.
