Niall Horan Struggles With A Break-Up In His Moody “Too Much To Ask” Video
After two failed attempts, Niall Horan finally drops a video! I don’t know what happened with “This Town,” but the Irishman pulled the plug on his “Slow Hands” visual when it didn’t meet his expectations. That must have put a lot of pressure on director Malia James to get “Too Much To Ask” just right. Luckily, she is able to capture the loneliness and desperation of the Greg Kurstin-produced ballad. The moody clip finds our hero struggling to cope with the emotional fallout of a relationship.
He contemplates life in a dark room, before getting on the tube and being confronted by a happy couple. From there, Niall grabs a couple of pints with his friends and does his best to put on a brave face. But he’s still clearly miserable. The night culminates with a jam session, which shows off the 24-year-old’s guitar-playing skills. “Too Much To Ask” is shaping up to be the former 1D star’s third consecutive solo hit. It topped the iTunes download chart in 39 countries, setting up his debut LP Flicker (due October 20) for a massive debut. Watch up top.
