After hooking up for the Rat Pack-inspired, black-and-white clip for “Suit & Tie,” Justin Timberlake is returning the favor and was spotted filming scenes for Jay Z’s “Holy Grail” video in Los Angeles.
Based on the photos, it’s hard to glean what the actual plot of the video will be, but it does look like it will take place after sunset.
“Holy Grail” is featured on Hova’s latest album release, Magna Carta Holy Grail, which he dropped last month.
In addition to hooking up on Justin’s The 20/20 Experience (and the subsequent “Suit & Tie” video), both Timberlake and Jay are currently out on the road on their Legends of Summer jaunt, where they perform “Holy Grail.” The trek wraps up on August 16 in Miami.
Timberlake and Jay have been busy pumping out videos off their latest album releases. Last week, Timberlake released his video for “Take Back The Night” off The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2 slated for release this fall. Meanwhile, last Friday, Jay dropped the artsy clip for “Picasso Baby,” shot by Mark Romanek at Milk Studios in NYC.
While Jay’s “Holy Grail” video is guaranteed to have some star power thanks to Justin, “Picasso Baby” also had some celebrity wattage in the form of cameos from performance artist Marina Abramovic, Alan Cumming, Taraji P. Henson, Fab Five Freddy, Judd Apatow, some of the cast of “Girls” including Adam Driver, Wale, fashion designer Cynthia Rowley and Rosie Perez.
