Nearly ten years after their “Hold You Down” video, Fat Joe and Jennifer Lopez are back in front of camera together in “Stressin’.” Serving as Fat Joe’s current single, the two Bronx natives shot the Eif Rivera-directed video in New York City this summer. Joe Crack gives fans a quick small teaser of the video, set to premiere on VEVO this Friday.

The whole video’s pretty much a party vibe,” Joe previously told Fuse TV on the video and song’s theme.. “So many obstacles in life … We never want to be looking like we’re stressin’. Never want to let them see you sweat, even though I’m sweating after this. But the point is: We’re enjoying life, life’s too short, so we gotta just enjoy life to the fullest and live every day like it’s the last.” Check out a preview below and buy the Rico Love-produced single on iTunes.
