Last week, Noah Centineo and Lily Collins took to social media to tease an upcoming project, and although there was speculation that the two would be costarring in a music video, it turned out to be so much more that. In fact, it was the To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before actor’s directorial debut!
That’s right, you guys! The 22-year-old first teased the collaboration on Twitter on January 21, writing, “Surprise on Friday but @lilycollins and @artmusic won’t let me talk about it,” and since Russian DJ and producer ARTY was tagged, fans instantly assumed to the two stars would be featured in the music video — especially since the Love, Rosie actress teased it as well.
The 29-year-old responded to the Netflix star’s tweet by saying, “Yesss guys, this was so fun! Cannot wait…” Of course, we knew something was up.

That’s not the only tease Lily posted, though. The Mortal Instruments actress also shared an adorable photo of her and the Sierra Burgess Is a Loser actor on her Instagram, and we were LIVING for them gazing romantically into each other’s eyes. We mean, we’d be crazy not to ship these two together!
Obviously, fans were intrigued by all of the hints that an exciting project was on the way. In fact, some even asked for Noah to drop more clues or spill the tea on the project entirely. But even though fans were totally convinced they had it all figured out and that the two would costar in a music video, no one suspected that Noah would be directing something so early on in his career.
On Friday, January 25, the music video officially dropped, which is when Noah revealed that he actually directed the whole thing himself.
He tweeted, “I convinced @artymusic to let me direct the music video for Save Me Tonight and somehow @lilycollins agreed to star in it with a bunch of our friends. (I might be in it too) So stoked to share with y’all, let me know what you think!”

Have you seen the video yet? NGL, he did a pretty great job. And even though we’re totally not buying that no one would sit next to Lily Collins at lunch, we have to admit that the song and the video are both really fun. Good job, Noah!
