In a refreshing change of pace, Illenium and Jon Bellion star in their music video for recent breakout single “Good Things Fall Apart.” The duo promoted the video in costume on Twitter earlier in the week, and the full video is out now.
The video begins with the world coming to an end, and the camera pans in on Illenium and Bellion standing within a ship that has catapulted them into the galaxy and away from the dying planet. Illenium showcases his guitar playing abilities juxtaposed with Bellion’s svocals as the flight takes a chaotic turn. The duo perform the song mid-flight in between action-packed vignettes of the ship’s crew attempting to regain order in the cockpit. The video ends with a heartfelt message, “To those who have the courage to change the course we are on.”
Both the track and the music video are out now via Astralwerks.

It’s these artists’ first time collaborating, and the outcome is the perfect combination of Illenium’s signature style with Bellion’s enamoring vocals that take center stage in the release.
“Good Things Fall Apart” features a simple guitar backdrop laying the framework for Bellion’s vocals to shine through amidst percussion and a crossover friendly electronic note progression pumped with euphoria. Bellion writes on Twitter that the collaboration with Illenium is “one of his favorite things he has worked on.” He also writes “The 2003 me is mood boarding furiously.”
The track is an angsty break up ballad that showcases the best from both artists, and they will be speaking more about the track today at 3P EST on Instagram Live if fans want to learn more about how the track came to be. “Good Things Fall Apart” is out now via Astralwerks.
