Talk about job perks: In her upcoming music video for "99 Times," singer-songwriter Kate Voegele gets to don a fabulous wardrobe, play an empowered woman – and lock lips with Dancing with the Stars pro Derek Hough.

The video portrays Voegele, 22, "walking around a room filled with boyfriends who have lied to her and broke her heart," explains Hough, 23, the co-lead vocalist for the Ballas Hough Band. "At the very end she kisses me and then pushes me down, causing a domino effect with all her past boyfriends."

So, how did it go? "The video was so much fun to shoot and Derek was awesome," raves Voegele, who also plays Mia on One Tree Hill. "Great dancer, great musician, great kisser. That guy's got a few things going for him!"

Among them, of course, would be Hough's girlfriend, actress Shannon Elizabeth. But he assures PEOPLE that the on-screen smooch was strictly business. "I didn't know I would be kissing Kate until about five seconds before we did," he says. "I'm not going to lie, I was a little nervous!"

Voegele's sophomore album A Fine Mess drops May 18.
