Since its release last year, we’ve been ‘hooked’ with Bonnie Kellett’s latest single. Written with Scott Hardy and Dennis Stojanovski, Hooked is the fourth single from Bonnie's soon to be released debut album. The song brings out yet another side of herself in the hook-filled country pop groove.

Lyrically, Hooked is about innocence and addiction to love – the kind of unrequited love where one person is head over heels, while the other is not as invested, yet keeps returning, knowing the other one is addicted like a drug. While one is not emotionally checked in, the other is in a never-ending cycle of not knowing where they truly stand.

“As with a lot of the tracks on my upcoming album, this song is about finding the positive through the negative,” says Bonnie. “It’s about finding empowerment and reclaiming your worth when faced with difficult situations. With Hooked it’s about learning how to say no and to let go when something no longer serves you. It’s about finding out how strong you really can be.”

Co-written by Bonnie while in Nashville, Hooked also features the violin her late father gave her as a child, which is over 100 years old. Bonnie’s father’s banjo is also on the track, played by the song’s producer, ARIA award-winning Govinda Doyle.

The music video, which premieres today exclusively on Countrytown, stars Bonnie and Alex Blenkin in the lead roles and was filmed by Jake Davey Studios.

Bonnie adds, “When watching [the music video], you'll notice the scenes rewind and go backwards… which represents being stuck in a cycle and being addicted to the wrong kind of love.”
