Martin Garrix and Bebe Rexha have unveiled the music video for their new collaboration "In The Name Of Love." The video is situated at a palatial mansion where the two artists star as a pair of lovers navigating the tumultuous waters of love.

The scene finds Martin Garrix suited up and Bebe Rexha in a red dress in the backyard of a large mansion. Out by the pool, they stand on the diving board as the song progresses. The weather gets stormy and the water comes up to splash at them, but despite all of the ominous signs, they jump in the pool and kiss. All in the name of love.

"Would you rise up, come and meet me in the sky? / Would you trust me when you're jumping from the heights? / Would you fall in the name of love? / When there's madness, when there's poison in your head / When the sadness leaves you broken in your bed / I will hold you in the depths of your despair / And it's all in the name of love," sings Rexha in the second verse.

The track is much different from what fans have heard from Garrix before. As he transitions from harder electro, festival-driven beats to songs with a bigger emphasis on the melody, Garrix has become a bigger and bigger star. "In The Name Of Love" fits into the current dance-pop landscape with its shimmering synths and high-pitched vocal stabs. By launching his own record label STMPD Records and releasing pop & hip-hop music under the moniker Area21, Garrix has really spread his wings in 2016.
