[artist id="510062"]Lil Wayne[/artist] shocked fans when he took to singing over an acoustic guitar on his new Tha Carter IV single “How to Love,” and it seems Weezy has more surprises in store. According to the song’s producer, Detail, the single’s video also will defy expectations.
During a studio visit, the Young Money CEO revealed to Detail a treatment that he had written for the clip. “Wayne wrote every scene: He told me scene by scene by scene,” the producer said to MTV News. “It’s gonna have a big, big, big effect, and it’s going to shock you because the perspective you might look at it as. He kinda tapped into a different perspective of the song and gave a different enlightenment on how you can consider a girl and how they’re in a forever pursuit trying to find love.”
Detail didn’t want to give too much away, but was so excited by Wayne’s treatment that he is already looking forward to crossing rap’s boundaries and attending some very different events. “After he showed me the video concept, it’s like, ‘Yo, dude, we’re gonna be at the Country Awards with this record,’ ” Detail said, laughing. “We gonna be sitting next to Taylor Swift.”
Released last week, “How to Love” is on the top 10 iTunes singles chart. The single’s cover art shows Wayne with his back to the camera and his arms spread open.
In an exclusive interview with MTV News’ Sway Calloway, Wayne said his new single gives him “goose bumps” and that he has “never had a single like it.”
