“Take Back Home Girl” Is Chris Lane’s Ode To Puppy-Love


There is no better compliment in an early dating relationship than to tell your significant other that you want them to meet your parents. Sure, it’s a big step, but it shows a lot of confidence and care that you would even want to open up that can of worms with someone. Chris Lane‘s new son “Take Back Home Girl” is a puppy-love song about what it’s like to take your girl back home to Momma. Luckily for him, the girl is Tori Kelly.

The song is fantastic, but the video is a mostly vanilla look at going home. There’s no anxiety, no weird uncles, no awkward run-ins with old high school friends or exes, all of whom show up at some point. I guess if you’re lucky enough to be taking Tori Kelly back home, you probably are lucky enough to avoid them all.

Also, they rarely look at each during the video. Are they about to break up? It happens after going home.
