New reports has just surfaced regarding Mariah Carey's upcoming third single "I'll Be Lovin' U Long Time," saying that the pop diva will be adding something special for the song and its music video. According to Mariah official website, the pop singer will tap T.I. to be featured on the new single's music video and also a remix of that song.
Moreover, the website also claimed that T.I. has already flown to the set where the video is being shot which is in Hawaii. Previously, Mariah has also confirmed that the clip for her third single will be directed by renown director Chris Applebaum.
Revealing the reason she picked Hawaii as the location for her new clip, Mariah said, "What do I know about the video? I know that it's gonna utilize a lot of the beautiful nature obviously that you get when you go to Hawaii. It's a gorgeous place. And I don't wanna be talking about some...to my idea before I put it out there but there's another element to it that's really fun that I don't think anyone else has done yet. Confirming about Chris' involvements she then added, "So I'm kind of looking forward to that. Chris Applebaum is the director. I've never worked with him, but I really like his work."
The new song itself is taken from Mariah's latest LP "E=MC²", that was outed on April 8. The single was performed live for the first time by the singer at MTV Video Music Awards Japan on May 31. Beside that, "I'll Be Lovin' U Long Time", reportedly also appears at the end of a new film "You Don't Mess with the Zohan".
