Watch: Charli D'Amelio Reveals If Boyfriend Landon Barker Is "the One"

Landon Barker is sharing a glimpse at all the small things in his new song.

The 19-year-old released his debut single "Friends With Your EX" Sept. 22, sharing it alongside a music video that seemingly tells the tale of how he and Charli D'Amelio's romance came to be. In fact, Landon even recruited his girlfriend for a small role.

In the video, Landon and his band are in a garage preparing for a show. And the audience is none of than Charli and her friends, who are propped on a couch in the driveway watching the group do their thing.

"I close my eyes and I see you," he sings, "It's only you / I make mistakes but so do you."

But something that can't be mistaken? Charli's admiration for the song, as she is seen clapping and looking at the band in awe as they perform.

As Landon sings, "You're a dream in my head / Now I'm sleeping in your bed," visions of Charli lying on his lap on a couch in the middle of nature flash onto the screen.

However, the son of Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler then cuts to a massive plot twist: Charli isn't there for him. The D'Amelio Show star runs up to hug the guitarist behind Landon, as it becomes clear the scenes of himself and the TikToker are all in his head. But it's not over for him yet.

He's later able to shoot his shot at a party after the show, when another girl catches the guitarist's eye, giving Landon and Charli the chance to finally sealing the deal with a kiss.

After an all-out brawl with his guitarist over the influencer, Landon comes out on top, with him and Charli riding off into the night together. 

In addition to collaborating with his IRL love on the music video, the track was a full family affair. After all, he released it on his dad's label DTA Records and also had the Blink-182 artist featured on the drums.

As for the inspiration behind the pop-punk hit? Well, some theories point to Charli's ex-boyfriend Chase Hudson, with whom she split for good just a few months before making things official with Landon in June 2022.

However, drama ensued after Chase—who was previously pals with Landon—appeared to throw shade at the couple with his song "All the Things I Hate About You."

But more than a year after the drama with Chase, Landon and Charli are still going strong. In fact, the musician even tattooed a closeup of the influencer's eye and eyebrow on his arm, which he shared on his Instagram Story in June.

And in addition to making his affection a bit permanent, he's also shown plenty of love on social media—including for her 19th birthday.

"Happy birthday to the most beautiful girl in the world @charlidamelio," Landon wrote in May. "I don't even know where to start, since the first day we ever started talking you have changed my life! Your such a kind, strong loving person and that has brought me and so many others so much happiness and love. I love you so much hope you have the best day ever you deserve it so much."
