The video stars Hilary playing the bored and uninspired office drone dreaming of her next vacation. The song itself has a lone guitar track that’s reminiscent of a new country tune from the likes of Taylor Swift.

From beach scene to drinking coffee out of a martini glass at work, the video explores the working-to-live lifestyle. When she’s in her version of paradise, she can be seen galloping across an empty beach into the arms of a handsome man – a man who later rubs Hilary down with suntan lotion.

The song has been teased at a release party and on Instagram, but the video officially launched on Monday (July 28). Since its launch, it has already reached more than 250,000 views on YouTube.

Hilary celebrated the launch of “Chasing the Sun” by addressing her Canadian fans personally. “You Canadians always showing so much love to me!!!! #6 ain’t too shabby. Yaaas,” the 26-year-old singer said in a tweet.
