Cash Money Records’ Birdman is ready to hobnob with some of his fellow bigwigs.
Baby will team up with Toni Braxton in L.A. on Monday (September 30) and Tuesday to shoot the video for “Baby We Can Do It,” which will be directed by David Palmer. From there, the Birdman will fly to Virginia Beach for rehearsals for the Nellyville tour, which starts Thursday.
On October 7 and 8, the #1 Stunna will pair off with another flashy CEO-turned-rapper in Miami: P. Diddy. He’ll bring his platinum chains to the set of the video for “Do That,” where David Meyers will be shot-calling.
“Do That” is the first single off of Baby’s The Birdman, which drops on November 26 (see “Baby Ready To Unleash Balla Birdman With Help From P. Diddy, Cam’ron” ). That track finds P.D. and Baby exchanging lines on living the good life. Meanwhile, Braxton sings the same chorus that helped the S.O.S. Band blow up back in the day on “Baby We Can Do It,” which will be a future single.
“Baby, we can do it/ Take your time, do it right/ We can do it Bay-baaayyy,” she sings, using a interpolation of the group’s 1980 dance classic “Take Your Time (Do It Right),” which was produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis.
Speaking of babies, Braxton is expecting, so the Cash Money Millionaire wanted to get their shoot out the way before she starts showing. Their video won’t be out until January, according to Baby’s spokesperson.
