Colbie Caillat Tells Women To Take Off Makeup In “Try” Music Video

Colbie Caillat

Ladies, here come the feels. Of empowerment that is.

Colbie Caillat’s new music video for “Try” is urging you to take off the make-up and go about this world in your natural beauty.

This video is full of no-makeup selfies, women of all ages and races lip-syncing to Caillat who eventually takes off her makeup too. “Try” is the first track off “Gypsy Heart Side A,” Caillat’s fourth studio album.

Today spoke with Caillat about working with Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds on this track: “While we were writing, Kenny told me, ‘Stay true to yourself. You don’t have to try,” Caillat remembers. “It was such an amazing thing to hear from him of all people. I thought it was a great point, and I started singing the chorus with the words, ‘You don’t have to try.’ I told him how exhausting it is for women. There’s so much we have to do in order to make ourselves beautiful so we feel accepted in the public eye. This is an anthem for women to accept who they are and be comfortable showing it and not hiding it.”
