“Baz Luhrmann made one of my favourite movies and I can’t think of a pair more perfect than John and Kenzie to bring the music video version to life. Not only are they the same age as this iconic, love-struck duo, we can all remember our first crush and or can relate to falling for someone we might not get,” said director Nayip Ramos. “We gave the timeless story a small town feel and a fresh spin. I wanted this video to feel like a mini-movie – something you can watch again and again.”

What If” cuts to the core of the fun and excitement of a having a crush – or a close friend who might be something more. After Johnny and Mackenzie’s sold-out 2017 North American and European co-headlining tour, fans can’t get enough of the new music from the dynamic duo.

Johnny said “This is definitely my favourite music video to date! I had an amazing time working with Mackenzie and Nayip Ramos once again on such a creative project. We think our fans are going to love the Romeo and Juliet story line and we can’t wait to share it.”

“The making of “What If” was such a fun experience and I’m happy I got to make it with one of my close friends and the talented Nayip Ramos,” added Mackenzie. “We’re excited for you to see it.”
