Watch Now: Immensely talented singer and songwriter Lauren Spencer-Smith releases her new music video for “Fingers Crossed”
Lauren Spencer-Smith shares the official music video to her breakout hit ‘Fingers Crossed’, an ethereal, blue-hued visual that captures the anthemic nature of the song.
Directed by Audrey Ellis Fox, the video sees Lauren in the narrator role, beautifully singing her lyrics as a young couple goes through the highs and lows of a romantic relationship. ‘Fingers Crossed’ embodies the raw, relatable storytelling that Lauren is capable of, and it resonated with millions — a snippet of the song had 25 million views on TikTok before catapulting to the charts, hitting the Top 50 on Spotify in 23 countries including Top 10 on the Global Chart, #1 in the UK, and #2 in the US.
It also claimed the #1 spot on iTunes Overall Top Songs US Chart and peaked #1 on the Apple Music Global Chart, which was the first independent song of 2022 to do so. Currently, the song has over 170 million global streams.
While ‘Fingers Crossed’ continues to usher in new fans, Lauren, who was born in the UK and now resides in Vancouver Island, vows to keep up the momentum as she’s already begun teasing her next single ‘Flowers’.
The music video for ‘Fingers Crossed’ comes after Lauren announced her partnership with Island and Republic Records, both divisions of Universal Music Group (UMG). The innovative partnership allows Lauren Spencer-Smith to keep her independent spirit via her own imprint while tapping into premium services from both labels. The collaboration was structured with manager and business partner David Ehrlich.
