Super producer [artist id=”503162″]Timbaland[/artist] teamed up with [artist id=”1231683″]Justin Timberlake[/artist] in the video for their duet “Carry Out,” released Friday (February 19) — and chocolate cake and cherries, not models, were the eye candy.
Donning a white jacket and white baseball cap, Justin sang, “Take my order, ’cause your body’s like a carry-out/ Lemme work it to your body till it’s lights-out/ Turn me on now baby.” “Carry Out,” a southern term used for restaurants where customers primarily pick up their orders, is Timbaland’s third single from Shock Value II, which also features collaborations with Esthero, Drake , Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus, among others. This particular video showcases Timabland and Timberlake’s chemistry as they dance and rap while models dressed as waitresses and French maids take their orders.
“I could feed you mama, you could feed me,” the pair chant during the second verse.
The clip ends with each model biting into a piece of chocolate cake with a smile, proving that food is still the way to a man’s heart.
Timbaland — who recently said that he’s done with hip-hop production — and Timberlake have a long history of collaborating together, most notably on Justin’s sophomore solo album, 2006’s FutureSex/LoveSounds where the duo played with Prince-like rhythms and electronica, culminating in the ubiquitous single “My Love” featuring T.I. Last month during the producer/rapper’s Hollywood show at the House of Blues , Timberlake joined his friend onstage for a performance of “Carry Out” along with “SexyBack” and “My Love.”
Justin also recently showed his clothing line, William Rast, during New York Fashion Week. The singer described the collection as a bridge between music and fashion .
“Well, I think since the beginning of rock and roll, people have wanted to dress like rock stars,” he told MTV News backstage at his label’s fashion show. “I still find old Mick Jagger jackets that I wish I could pull out of his closet or something. Of course, they wouldn’t fit me — very tight. I think we all want to dress like rock stars.”
