Luke James wears his heart on his sleeve in the video for 'Options,' the first single off his upcoming album.

The lovesick singer, dressed in all-black, enters an empty soundstage and croons through his emotions. With Rick Ross beside him, Luke sings of a love that was once violent.

“I’m a man of simple knowledge / She’s a woman whose prone to violence / It used to be something beautiful / Red flags regardless / And love used to be our vehicle / But now there’s too much violence,” James sings on the piano-driven track.

'Options' will appear on Luke’s self-titled N.A.R.S./Def Jam debut, arriving Sept. 23.
