Behind The Video: Trey Songz feat. Nicki Minaj – “Touchin, Lovin”


Trey Songz and Nicki Minaj have another hit collaboration on their hands with “Touchin, Lovin” off the R&B heartthrobs latest album Trigga.

The sexy, bouncy single is the next release off the No. 1 album and Trey is currently prepping for the release of the anticipated, and potentially groundbreaking music video.

“It was a very interesting concept. We actually have an extra surprise in the video, where there’s an interactive feature,” Trey told MTV News on set. “I know my fans are very engaged on the computer and very much social savvy, so when we give them options to watch the video, I’m sure they’ll watch it probably 20 times when you realize you can go this way, that way, this way.”

It sounds like a concept that we haven’t really seen before in a music video, and the clip’s director, Jason Zada, thinks it’ll be something that fans love.

“This idea of all your fantasy choices available to you at any point in time, it was kind of this really great way of sort of personifying all these fantasies that we all have floating around in our heads,” he said.

And while we don’t see Nicki in these behind-the-scenes shots, she will definitely be in the video — playing a special role.

“Nicki’s playing the dominant figure,” Trey added. “She’s basically controlling my dreams. And each portion of what you see is what it is she wants to happen.”
