Trey Songz offers a quick glimpse at his upcoming music video which is filmed to support Nicki Minaj-assisted single "Bottoms Up". The R&B performer is seen suiting up and singing the song inside a dark room with lights flashing.
"[It's] is a very creative video, different from the norm, different than what I feel is expected of me and anything I've shot for that matter," he told MTV. "[Director] Anthony [Mandler] used a lot of different shooting techniques and I think it heightens whatever it is that the song has already. The drive, the vigor, the club anthem, the energy in the record is definitely heightened with this video."
"It's as if I'm walking through some kind of funhouse, filled with women and different seductive things," Songz continued. "There's a two-way mirror that's a dope effect that he uses. And the lighting shows, and then you see women and then you don't and then you see them and then you don't."
As for Minaj's cameo, he said, "She comes in and does exactly what I got her on the record for. She comes in and she kills it. I wanted her to make the record different. I wanted her to take it to a different place and that's exactly what she did. Even in the video, she made a major contribution ... from her hair to her outfits to the way she raps and how theatrical she is in her delivery."
"Bottoms Up" is the lead single from Trey Songz's new album "Passion, Pain & Pleasure" which is due September 14 in United States. The music video is promised to be premiered sometime soon.
