Jessica Lowndes went burlesque for her first music video, "I Wish I Was Gay," but the 90210 star wanted to tone things down for her follow-up single.

To do so, the 23-year-old singer hired Tao Ruspoli to direct "Nothing Like This," which they shot on location in New York City. (Ruspoli, an Italian prince, was once wed to actress Olivia Wilde.)

"He's just got an amazing vision," Lowndes raved during a recent visit to Us Weekly's NYC office. "I wanted it to feel like a '60s retro film, and this song means a lot to me. I was going through a breakup when I wrote it and it's just basically about what I was going through."

Though her new music video isn't as racy as "I Wish I Was Gay," "there is a lot of making out," Lowndes laughed. "That's definitely a lot of fun being a single girl."
