Lucy & La Mer teamed up with LGBTQ Influencer/Author Haley Faulkner to create a romantic, light-hearted music video about long-distance relationships.
Rollercoaster is a fun, carefree song about the ups-and-downs of a first-time queer relationship. The pair, already known for their own individual content on social media, self-filmed an entire music video on their phones from opposite sides of the U.S.

Her new single, «Rollercoaster» embodies the delightfulness of a new relationship and the rush of having your first girlfriend. The video stars LGBTQ influencer Haley Faulkner, and includes an easy-to-learn TikTok dance for both Lucy and Haley’s fans.
