A surefire way to get buzz for your single is to invite 50 Cent to feature on it. On Tuesday, former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger took to Twitter to announce that she was doing just that.
“Shooting #RIGHTTHERE video w/ my boy @50cent @nicolescherzy & @50cent too hot for all these clothes!,” Scherzinger tweeted, along with a photo of the two on the set.
MTV News was also on the Los Angeles set of the video for “Right There,” directed by Paul Hunter. The still-unreleased “Right There,” featuring a verse by Fif and produced by Jim Jonsin , will be the first U.S. single off Scherzinger’s long-awaited solo debut , Killer Love. (A version of the album, sans 50 Cent, is already out in Europe.)
“I wanted to kinda keep the video pretty simple because I wanted it iconic,” the songstress said, decked out in an eye-popping orange jumpsuit and olive-green jacket. “The way you get iconic pictures and memorable videos is just by keeping it simple. So we’re in downtown L.A., and we’re just wearing super-fly colors, and we’re just feelin’ it. Right now, we just shot a scene, it’s just us against the blue skies — it’s beautiful and we’re just feeling the song.”
Fif, who looked dapper in a blood-red trench coat and matching cap, joked that he sought out the collab for other reasons.
“Well, I was really wanting to date her,” the rapper said with a grin. “They played the song, and I said, ‘OK, I’ll do it. Maybe I’ll get a chance to do the video and be next to her and see what happens!’ “
