Barry Keoghan and Sabrina Carpenter cemented their relationship status in the most extra way possible - in the pop star’s brand new music video. 

The Espresso singer has just dropped the steamy visuals for new track, Please Please Please, after teasing a “surprise” for fans on social media.  

The Saltburn star and Sabrina made their romance public with a couple of red carpet appearances, but if this new music video is anything to go by, the couple are well and truly official.

In the Please Please Please music video, Sabrina is being bailed out of jail (in her best sparkling party dress no less) and spots a rugged Barry heading into a cell. It seems a whirlwind love blossoms as the pair rush to plenty of sketchy locations - including a dingy back room where Barry ends up in a fist-fight. 

People locked in car trunks and bank robberies seem to be part-and-parcel of the couple’s usual activities, which ends with a rather raunchy meet-up involving handcuffs and duct tape, leaving Barry’s bad boy character watching Sabrina leave. 

Rumours of a new relationship between Barry and Sabrina originally started in late 2023, and the pair made their red carpet debut in March at the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party. 

Please Please Please is taken from Sabrina’s upcoming album Short n’ Sweet, set for release in August. 

The Girl Meets World star’s sixth album has been something of a learning journey. Talking about the process to Cosmopolitan, Sabrina shared: “I put two and a half years into making [fifth album Emails I Can't Send] and it’s a s****y feeling when you put so much time into something and people want something new in two months. So I’m trying to really take this experience in before moving on to the next thing.”

“But I’ve been working on the next thing for a minute. I’m starting to feel like I’ve outgrown the songs I’m singing, which is always an exciting feeling, because I think that means the next chapter is right around the corner.”

Sabrina’s been working on her star turn for years, originally getting recognition as a Disney Channel star, playing lead roles in Girl Meets World and Adventures in Babysitting.

She's also starred in films like Horns alongside Daniel Radcliffe, The Hate U Give, and Netflix hits like Tall Girl and Work It, the latter of which she executive-produced.

Carpenter moved into music in 2014 with her debut single Can't Blame a Girl for Trying, followed by an EP of the same name. Since then, she's dominated the charts with smash hits like Nonsense and Feather.

She's even supported Taylor Swift on her record-breaking Eras Tour, released a Christmas EP, and regularly gone viral with her filthy Nonsense outros.

Despite looking like a total natural in the music video world, Barry recently opened up about the most overwhelming scene to film in his critically acclaimed flick Saltburn

One Saltburn scene which contributed to the sudden viral rise of Keoghan’s star status was the film’s final moments, in which his character Oliver danced naked around the titular stately home.

Keoghan bared all for the role, but has admitted in the past that it was the dancing rather than the nudity which he found most daunting.

“I’m pretty impressed with how I moved, I was like, ‘Wow’” the actor shared to Vanity Fair. “In the final moment of the dance, I twirl twice, and if you look at my footwork, it’s linked to boxing. It’s all about footwork and moving hips and stuff like that…

“I was afraid to move my hips and move my body in a certain way, but the set was made quite comfortable for me. Once the camera goes up, I always feel a bit safe, and I have the licence to kind of waltz in that environment,” he added.
