The video features the pair contemplating the future of their relationship as both lovers and friends. The sultry melody is matched perfectly with director Lacey Duke’s slow moving shots, adding a mixture of black-and-white and color-saturated frames. Fans who’ve been waiting to see the “Focus” singer without shades are also in for a pleasant surprise; there are  shots of her face throughout. Still, Duke is able to use the magic of lighting and camera techniques to keep much of H.E.R.’s mystery intact.

Check out H.E.R. and Tiller’s “Could’ve Been” below.
