Chace Crawford has a new leading lady – but Gossip Girl fans shouldn't worry.

The actor, 23, stars opposite British singer Leona Lewis in the video for her new ballad, "I Will Be," which will premiere the week of Jan. 12.

The clip was shot in New York City on Dec. 18 in the middle of absolutely bone-chilling weather.

Lewis – who is up for three Grammys, including Record of the Year – asked Crawford to appear in the video after the two hit it off in London last year.

"He has speaking lines in the video as well as just appearing in it," a source told PEOPLE.

Lewis is re-releasing her debut album as Spirit – The Deluxe Edition on Feb. 3.
