The music video was filmed in several locations in Miami and directed by Gil Green and DJ Khaled. It also featured cameo appearances from Timbaland, Ace Hood, Lil Terio and others. Jay-Z does not physically appear in the video, but his verse still does. Khaled addressed this saying, “You know, Jay Z really don’t shoot that many videos. He aint never say yes and he aint never say no. But if you notice the records he do get on, he don’t shoot that many videos. He don’t really shoot that many videos for himself. I was grateful to have the verse and the opportunity to work with somebody I’m inspired by and look up to. Just to get him on the record was a major accomplishment”

The music video premiered in late June 2014, on DJ Khaled’s official YouTube VEVO channel.

The song’s production was handled by OVO Sound’s Mike Zombie. The song has since reached a peak of number 30 on the US Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

Two reworked versions of Jackson’s 1983 version, produced by American record producers Timbaland, Jerome “J-Roc” Harmon, John McClain, and Dutch record producer Giorgio Tuinfort, form the first single released from Jackson’s second posthumous album, Xscape.

It is the second collaboration between Jackson and Anka to be released since Jackson’s 2009 death (the first being “This Is It“). Timbaland also paid homage to Jackson’s 1979 song “Workin’ Day and Night” by sampling percussion and breaths from the track.

Since its release, “Love Never Felt So Good” has received positive reviews from critics. Surprised by the quality of the song, Aisha Harris from Slate writes that Timberlake’s version “sounds like an outtake from Off The Wall” and further commented: “If producers are going to put out more MJ music, let’s hope it continues to sound this good.”

She turns down his advances and after a steamy make-out session in the kitchen, she hits him over the head with a frying pan. He is dragged through the desert on the back of a truck while she sits in the driver’s seat, but only one of them makes it out alive.

The Timbaland-produced song is the second single off Timberlake’s No. 1 album The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2.

His “20/20 Experience World Tour” kicks off November 6 in New York.

Watch JT face some cruel and unusual punishment at the hands of his twisted lover.”

Timbaland feat. Pitbull – Pass At Me Music Video

Pass At Me” is the lead first single from American rapper and producer Timbaland‘s upcoming fourth solo studio album, Shock Value III.

The track features Pitbull, and was produced by David Guetta and Timbaland.

The music video features cameos by David Guetta among many others (and plenty of women) and it premiered on Timbaland’s official YouTube VEVO channel in mid September 2011.

Pitbull opens the song, manning a yacht set sail for a deserted paradise filled with bootylicious dancers. Apparently, that much booty makes Timbaland crazed and the video climaxes with a rave-like dance party led by DJ David Guetta.

The video is rife with product placement including ads for beer, cars and a new book by fashion photographer Rapahael Mazzucco titled, ‘Culo [A–] by Mazzucco.’

Mazzuco partnered with Interscope Chairman Jimmy Iovine to release the book and, naturally, Timbaland’s rump-themed dance track was selected for cross-promotion.

For a heavy dose of butt, be sure to check out the video preview of the book highlighting the best of Mazzuco’s ‘Culo’ images below. [via The BoomBox]
