Justin Timberlake certainly knows how to enjoy the single life.
The singer just wrapped up his latest video, “Senorita,” and in the clip he’s not just wooing one or two girls, but a room full of bodacious beauties.
Timberlake, who’s currently on tour with Christina Aguilera on the Justified and Stripped Tour, is at his most provocative on the song, the fourth single from his multiplatinum solo album, Justified (see “Justin Promises Spectacle, Special Guest On Christina Tour” ).
With a vibe that conjures up the dusty, sultry imagery of a Spanish roadhouse, Timberlake is in full player mode, surrounded by — as a label rep put it — lots of “Latin mamis” for the Spanish-themed song.
Last month at his tour kickoff in Phoenix (see “Christina Does Her Cher Impression, Justin Fights The Screams At Tour Kickoff” ), Timberlake was asked about the concept of the video, which was then still in the idea stage. Would he be aiming his affections at just one lovely lady? “No,” the pop star said. “Why should you limit yourself to just one?”
Timberlake performs with his live band in the video. On select dates during his continental trek with Aguilera, Timberlake and his band have been performing at special late-night parties dubbed the “Show After the Show” (see “It’s Justin Timberlake Gone Wild At Late-Night Club Show” ).
Paul Hunter, who has directed videos for Eminem, Lenny Kravitz and Mya, shot the clip at a club in Los Angeles. The video also features cameos by both Pharrell Wiliams and Chad Hugo of the Neptunes, who produced the song.
