James Arthur and Anne-Marie project insatiable longing in their stunning music video for their duet of “Rewrite the Stars” from The Greatest Showman: Reimagined. The award-winning British artists put their own beautiful spin on the aching and longing Zac Efron and Zendaya’s characters feel for each other in the face of their forbidden love in the film.
In the video, Arthur and Anne-Marie sing to each other in a big-top-style setting surrounded by dancers, whose movements also emote longing. Dressed in a tux, Arthur watches wistfully from up above before Anne-Marie, looking lovely in an exquisite ball gown, joins him center-ring. They sing back-to-back, clearly pining for each other and a love they may not ever realize. (Watch the video above).
Arthur and Anne-Marie’s duet and video dropped on Nov. 16, the same day as the Reimagined soundtrack’s release. Their version of the track notably hit the same position within the Top 20 on the UK Singles Chart as the original track, charting at No. 16.
The duet follows the release of the former “X Factor UK” winner’s latest ballad, “Empty Space,” which dropped Oct. 19. Arthur recently performed the song on “The X Factor UK” and the official music video features “Harry Potter” film franchise star, Tom Felton.
James Arthur and Anne-Marie will make the worldwide performance debut of “Rewrite the Stars” on “The X Factor UK” season 15 finals, which will air in the U.S. on Sunday, Dec. 2 and Monday, Dec. 3 on AXS TV.
