Watch Brooke Eden Shake It Up After Her Breakup in New “Act Like You Don’t” Video

Over the weekend, Brooke Eden dropped a new video for her single, “Act Like You Don’t.” The tune, which was co-penned by Brooke, Jesse Frasure and Cary Barlowe, recounts Brooke’s struggle to heal from the heartbreak of a tough breakup.

“The video is a pretty literal interpretation of what I did after my breakup that influenced the song,” says Brooke to Nash Country Daily. “I spent my time hanging out with my girls a lot, going out with my girls a lot, and just basically doing anything I could do to get my brain off of thinking about my breakup. It was important to me to be truthful and authentic with the song’s lyrics, so that’s exactly what I wanted to show in the video.”

The camera tags along as Brooke gets ready at her apartment for a night out, and follows along as Brooke and her girlfriends have a good time at one of Nashville’s favorite dive bars, Springwater.

“My role in the video is exactly what I did after the breakup,” says Brooke. “It’s like you really have to put yourself in the place of going back to two years ago and reliving when this was reality. I never wanted to be alone after my breakup. I wanted to be with all of my friends and just fill my brain with anything other than thinking about the breakup. I wasn’t bashing my ex, either. It was more like I needed to get away from the situation. I didn’t want to feel like a victim in the video. I want to feel victorious at the end of it and feel like I’m moving on from something instead.”
