Last year, The Voice introduced a new twist into the competition: the final four would release an original single and music video as they perform in the finale. And during the penultimate episode last night (May 18), the NBC show kept with that tradition, dropping new videos for each of its finalists. Show frontrunner Sawyer Fredericks debuted his Ray LaMontagne penned single "Please" on the competition, and now the official music video has landed online.
The music video plays along with teenage love and innocence. Wielding an acoustic guitar on his back and that signature bowler hat on his head, Fredericks goes over to his video girlfriend's house to serenade her with his latest single. In true teen fashion, her mom answers the door before the two embrace and head into the living room for a little hand-holding and jam session.
The music video is fittingly innocent for Fredericks, who sings the song with a sweetness and sincerity that has been present in his music throughout the entire competition. The simplicity of this track also fits with Fredericks' vibes; he's often taken to The Voice stage with nothing but a stool and his trusty instrument.

Fredericks isn't the only contestant to release a music video. His fellow contestants Koryn Hawthorne, Meghan Linsey and Joshua Davis dropped new singles and visuals, as well. The final four competed for the title of "The Voice" on Monday night, and the winner will be declared in a two-hour finale tonight (May 19) at 9 p.m. on NBC.
