MANILA – The music video of James Reid’s new single “u & i” has already amassed more than one million views less than three days since it first dropped on YouTube.

“It’s only been a day and it’s just about to hit 1M views! Thank you,” Reid said in an Instagram post on Saturday.
“u & i” is Reid’s first single off his sophomore album.
In the music video, Reid and Filipino-American model Kelsey Merritt depicted the essence of the song as being intimate with each other.
According to Careless Music, "u & i" is an "upbeat pop track that depicts two people connecting and knowing that they're drawn to each other.
"It's about enjoying each other's company and taking action to experience themselves – because when they're with each other, nothing else matters."
Reid earlier debunked speculations of a brewing romance between him and Merritt. In an Instagram post, the actor-musician shared a picture of him and Merritt where he appears to be sending the Filipino-American model off as she prepares to drive away.
It was later on revealed that the photo is the cover photo used on various music streaming platforms for “u & i.”
