Ben Platt Is Defying Gravity in His 'Imagine' Video - Listen to the New Song!

Ben Platt lives out his Wicked dreams and defies gravity like Elphaba in the music video for his new song “Imagine.”

The 27-year-old Tony-winning Dear Evan Hansen actor just released his romantic song that seemingly is about his boyfriend Noah Galvin.

“I can’t imagine my life without you / I can’t imagine one night without you / If something happened, don’t know what I’d do,” Ben sings in the song’s chorus.

At one point in the video, Ben jumps onto cars and then levitates into the air. We all know that he loves Wicked (and his dad Marc Platt actually produced the show!), so it would be amazing if the show inspired that moment in the video.

“imagine is a song for the person in your life that makes the ordinary a lil bit magical 💭✨,” Ben said on Instagram.
