Behind the Scenes


ne-yo-jeezy

The music video for Ne-Yo and Jeezy’s latest collaboration “Money Can’t Buy” premiered on BET’s 106 & Park on Monday. Until the clip makes its debut online, fans can go on set of the Chris Robinson-directed visual, which was filmed recently in Los Angeles. “We want those moments that money can’t buy,” Ne-Yo explains of the video’s theme. “So it’s not about going to the most expensive place or most glamorous place whatever the case might be. It’s just about moving around with somebody, enjoying that person’s company and just having a good time. It’s the moments and people, everything else….trivial.”

The song serves as the lead single off Ne-Yo’s sixth solo album Non Fiction, due this fall via Motown Records/Capitol.

Love was in the air, as French Montana shot a video for the song “Don’t Panic” in NYC on Wednesday night. The DJ Mustard-produced song is set to arrive soon, reportedly set to appear on Montana’s Mac & Cheese 4 sophomore album. Sticking with the theme of the single’s artwork, Montana and his girlfriend Khloe Kardashian threw on the masks on set of the frightful shoot.

Posing for photos, Khloe is seeing holding a rifle while her new beau grabbed a hold of a spiked bat. In another shot the pair are seen smiling in between takes, as French is sitting on a car with smashed windows.

Early Wednesday morning, Montana hit Instagram to preview a song recorded with West called “Money Can Change That.” The 15-second snippet of the song’s intro features heavy thunderous drums before Yeezy opens with an auto-tune laced hook.

Back in June on the red carpet of the 2014 BET Awards, French revealed to MTV News that the two have recorded five songs together. “I love it — we’ve been working on his album and mines so we’re just going back and forth,” said the 29-year-old Bronx rapper, who is currently working on his Mac & Cheese 4 sophomore album due in November. “I got Kanye on the album, I got will.i.am on the album, I’ve got Durk on the album and Chinx.”
