Exclusive: Nick Hissom Finds Love in "If I Die Young" Video

London-born Nick Hissom got his start as a model, working with Tommy Hilfiger and starring in editorials in magazines like GQ and Interview. But on July 1, the 21-year-old officially entered the music world with the release of his debut solo single, the EDM-pop anthem "If I Die Young." And now Fuse is exclusive premiering the track's music video—watch above! 

Directed by Brian Michael Henderson (The Game, Kendrick Lamar), the video features Playboy model Alyssa Arce as Hissom's romantic conquest. Shot in Malibu and Death Valley, "If I Die Young" is the perfect visual representation of young love; a world where the only thing that matters are walks on the beach, late-night parties and lovingly obsessing over your crush.

Hissom, an Electric Daisy Carnival alum who previously worked with DJ duo Manufactured Superstars, also co-produced "If I Die Young," which blends EDM-friendly bass drops with Hissom's anthemic, catchy vocals.
