Justin Jesso – “If You’re Meant to Come Back” music video
“COVID hit, making shooting a traditional video pretty much impossible. I wanted to show the world as it was in the time of Corona. And since I couldn’t travel myself, I sent a little red balloon instead. I find the Chicago footage, shot by Eddie Rogriguez, particularly beautiful.” – Justin Jesso
The video’s concept is simple yet emotionally compelling. A single red balloon drifts into the sky and embarks upon a world tour at the height of lockdown. From Berlin to Milan to Justin’s home of Chicago. Bustling cities now stand desolate. Their emptiness a haunting yet also beautiful representation of a world on pause. Also, the video offers an imaginative twist on the song’s meaning. Originally conceived as being about a relationship, it also represents the moment that we’re living through. At some point in the future, these places will once again become just as vibrant as they once were.
“I always want to put out content that hits people emotionally. This song is about trusting the universe and knowing that if that lover you have lost or that friend you can’t see, if it is meant to be, then they will come back to you. All the love in this world that is meant to come back to you, it will.” – Justin Jesso
‘If You’re Meant to Come Back’ tells an emotional tale of a guy who recently experienced an emotional breakup with his significant other. Apparently, he’s suffering from a severe heartache, and it’s painful knowing that the person he loves is no longer by his side. Even though his love life seems dim, he’s still optimistic that his ex will return in the near future. Furthermore, “If You’re Meant to Come Back” is a song about moving on, letting go, and never losing hope. As painful as the circumstances may seem, some scars heal while waiting for a happy ending.

“Even if you go and fall in love with someone else; as much as it’ll hurt me, I’ll survive. But if you’re lyin’ with him, feelin’ by yourself, I’ll still be yours to come and find. And you know what to say to get me to stay the night. I’m gonna fall in every time, every time, ’cause no one knows about tomorrow. But I know that I’ll be waitin’ for you still. So I’ll let you down to fill the void you’re tryna fill. If you’re meant to come back to me, you will.” – lyrics
