Now the singer-actress gives a closer look at the Hype Williams-directed clip with the official stills from the set.

Trey Songz keeps things PG as he shows appreciation to the lady in his life in the Justin Francis-directed video for “Simply Amazing,” a track lifted from his new album Chapter V, due August 21. The guitar-led cut serves as the album’s second single in international markets while we (the US) get the sultry “Dive In” as the follow-up to “2 Reasons” featuring T.I.
After releasing an early version of the album’s tracklisting on iTunes, Trey has unveiled the final version via Amazon. The 18-track disc features guest appearances from T.I. (“2 Reasons“), Young Jeezy and Lil Wayne (“Hail Mary”), Rick Ross (“Don’t Be Scared”) and Diddy and Meek Mill on “Check Me Out.”
Watch the video and check out the final track list for Chapter V below.
Following his roles in Stomp the Yard, Takers and Think Like a Man, Chris Brown will return to the big screen early next year in Battle of the Year.
The 3-D film, based on the award-winning documentary Planet B-Boy, follows an American dance crew who, with the help of their tough coach (Josh Holloway), struggle to reach their dreams despite being misunderstood by society and even their own families. Their push for success leads them to France, where they compete in the “Battle of the Year” finals against crews from 18 nations vying for the title of World Champion.
Directed by Benson Lee, the film also stars Laz Alonso, Josh Peck and Caity Lotz. Battle of the Year opens in 3-D on January 25, 2013.
Watch the trailer below.
Country group Zac Brown Band may have scored its second No. 1 album on the Billboard 200, but it’s Frank Ocean’s channel Orange that is (once again) making headlines.
Fans at Washington D.C.’s Howard Theater were treated to Brandy’s first live performance of “Put It Down,” the lead single from her upcoming sixth album Two Eleven, last night. The 90s powerhouse commanded the stage with her crisp live vocals and booty-poppin’ choreography. It’s clear Frank Gatson, Beyoncé’s longtime choreographer who’s responsible for Bran’s moves in the still-unreleased “Put It Down” music video, has taught the “Full Moon” singer a thing or two about selling an 8-count and owning the stage.
It’s refreshing to Brandy FINALLY promoting her Chris Brown-assisted single that’s been available on iTunes since May, even if only through radio promo. Baby steps. Next, she’ll have to follow-up the underperforming track with something to really make people want to shell out $9.99 when her album drops. By the way, there’s no better time than the present to release the video, Bran. Just sayin’.
