It was reported he was playing his acoustic on that video so definitely it's not for Living Proof.

Most likely it's Kiss the Bride.

You have no idea what it was for. It could have been a photo shoot for a magazine for all we know.

Err, no.

"He was lip-synching to an unreleased song".

No, my point is the assumption that just because he was holding a guitar, it means it is a video for Kiss The Bride. I don't doubt that they were filming a video. My point is that you have no idea what was being filmed/photographed.

Well you mentioned a photoshoot and now you're sure it was a video LOL

OF COURSE we're all guessing. But you wouldn't film a video for a song like Living Proof alone on a boardwalk, with an acoustic guitar and without the band. Far more easier to imagine that scene combined with actors in a wedding. A Thank You For Loving Me - style video.

JBJ was being photographed with his guitar. Chances are that was a photoshoot.

Why not just accept that we don't know what was being filmed/photographed, and for what purpose, rather than jumping to a conclusion and getting upset about it?

OK, I just give up.

I don't have time to reiterate 1000 times it was a video not a photo session and that I don't give a damn what that was about but that I was just guessing.

Stating that no one knows is simply stating the obvious.

This kind of bolsters what I was saying in another thread (MAYBE this one?) THINFS was a weird era where wiki says there were multiple singles. Someone took the dates the videos were released and called them singles.

The problem is "single" means different things to people. Was Labor to Love shipped to radio with a promo push? Absolutely not. But it had a video due to their promotion with TIDAL footing the bill for 12 videos in exchange for streaming exlusivity.

I believe Rollercoaster was an honest to god single. Looking at Spotify numbers they go in order of listening:

Title Track (30m)
Rollercoaster (15m)
Born Again Tomorrow (11.9m)
Knockout (11m)

Given that none of the songs were "hits" and a few weren't even signles, that's not terrible.

Being the best song on the album might have helped. Not sure how popular that opinion is around here though
