Justin Timberlake y Timbaland han estado grabado los videos que promocionaran sus nuevos singles, “LoveStoned” y “The Way I Are” respectivamente.
La grabación de dichos videos se ha llevado a cabo en secreto durante la semana pasada en Salford. “LoveStoned” se ha grabado en los estudios Web Studios el pasado jueves, en Little Hulton.
En cuanto a “The Way I Are”, próximo single del productor de R&B Timbaland, cabe destacar que Timberlake aparecerá en su nuevo video, puesto que el cantante fue avistado en el aparcamiento de la calle Chapel, uno de los escenarios del video. El director del video de Timbaland, Shane Brake afirmó “Creo que a Timbaland le gusta mucho el ambiente de Manchester, y eso ha propiciado que grabe el video mientras se encuentra aquí con Justin durante su gira en el Reino Unido”.
Para el video de LoveStoned cabe destacar que se usaron los focos más grandes de los estudios, con un total de 600 kilovatios de potencia. Mientras el video sale a la luz, Justin Timberlake disfruta de la gran variedad de restaurantes que Manchester ofrece, visitando entre otros “El Rincón”, para degustar las tapas españolas.
Both Justin and his r ‘n’ b producer cohort Timbaland have been filming at top-secret shoots in Salford in the past week.
Chart-topping solo star Justin recorded the promotional video for his latest single, Love Stoned, at in Little Hulton on Thursday.
And last night the SexyBack singer was due at a car park off Chapel Street, Salford, to appear in Timbaland’s video for his new single The Way I Are.
The results will be seen by the stars’ fans across the world – putting Salford squarely in a global spotlight.
In true superstar style, Justin, or JT as he likes to be known, pulled out all the stops at Web Studios for his video.
He used a massive 600kilowatts of lighting power- the most the studios have ever used for a single shoot.
Meanwhile music video director Shane Brake jetted into Manchester from Los Angeles yesterday for the Timbaland video, which shot throughout the night in Salford and Manchester, and said both music stars have loved their time in the region.
He said: “Timbaland wanted an edgy rock `n’ roll style video for this single so we chose a parking garage in Salford because of the interesting architecture and archways.
“Timbaland then wanted to end the video by driving around Manchester in a black cab.
“I think that Timbaland really sort of likes the vibe of Manchester, and it suited him to shoot his video while he was here with Justin on tour in the UK”.
Shane said that Timbaland had asked a “few professional football players” down to the shoot to star in the video as well, although remained tight-lipped about their identities.
Both Timberlake and Timbaland have been enjoying their time in Manchester – so much so they decided to extend their stay in the city after Justin’s two M.E.N. Arena gigs on Monday and Tuesday of this week. Justin, who has been staying at Salford’s five-star Lowry Hotel, has been taking advantage of Manchester’s wealth of restaurants.
He has been dining out with his new girlfriend, Hollywood star Jessica Biel, at eateries including Nandos for Portuguese, Shimla Pinks for Indian and El Rincon for Spanish tapas in the past week.
