It’s the Glee star’s first-ever music video as a solo artist.

“OMG THIS IS SUCH A DREAM COME TRUE!!!! I hope you guys like it!!! #CannonballMusicVideo,” wrote Michele on her Twitter account on Friday. “So thankful to everyone who helped me make my #CannonbaFrodllMusicVideo and to all of you for watching.”

Directed by Robert Hales and styled by Estee Stanley, the clip evokes the mid-tempo track’s lyrics of self-empowerment through light beams, wreckage and Michele’s dramatic outfits.

At first, Michele sits folded over in a dark, destroyed mansion, posed with the same distraught facial expressions she wears when singing an emotional ballad on the Fox musical dramedy. She knocks over a piano while dressed in a black crop top and mid-length tulle skirt with matching black nail polish.

The video then shows light filling the room as she paces and begins to smile. She later emerges in rooms of mirrors, stringed white lights and a backdrop of colored light beams, wearing white dresses and white nail polish while smiling from cheek-to-cheek.

“Cannonball” is the first single off her debut album Louder, which will be released on March 4.

The track was written by Sia Furler.

Michele is currently readying a music video for the empowering track.

Meanwhile, her debut album is set to hit stores on March 4, 2014 and is now available for pre-order on iTunes.

“So excited for everyone to hear my first single Cannonball, off my debut album Louder!” she told her four million followers.

In another post, the 27-year-old starlet said that her upcoming song was written by “the amazing” Australian singer/songwriter Sia Furler.

The single will be available on December 10, the same day fans can pre-order her highly anticipated solo album.

Michele has already filmed the music video for the track. “SO EXCITED SHOOTING MY VERY FIRST MUSIC VIDEO TODAY FOR THE FIRST ALBUM SINGLE!” she tweeted earlier this month. She also posted several photos taken from the set.

Michele, who stars as Rachel Berry of Fox‘s hit musical dramedy, plans to release her first studio effort in early 2014. In an interview with Elle for the magazine’s December issue, she revealed that her album would be featuring a song that she recorded for her late boyfriend, Cory Monteith.

The song is titled “If You Say So“, which were the last words Monteith said to her before he died back in July.

Michele said that she initially had no plan to include the song in her album.

“The album was done, and the label said, ‘Do you want to add anything?’ I was like, ‘I might regret it if I don’t,’ ” she said of adding the song to the tracklist at the last minute.
