Party Starter Music Video Filmed 2 weeks ago
They recently shot the Party Starter music video in New York. The music video was directed by Paul Hunter.
Will walks into a broken run down club, he comments that the place ain't what it used to be, and then he picks up a mic on the floor. At this point the room comes alive, a sign saying "Hip Hop since '85 comes down, and people come through the room and start dancing to the song. Jazzy Jeff is also in the video. When they get to the last chorus the building falls apart, and people get out while the music continues playing. The music video will be hitting the usual outlets in the next few weeks.

Tell Me Why(ftg Mary J Blige) Details
Some more details about the next single, which Will calls the greatest song he's ever written. This is from "Anon" on the JJFP Forum who saw Will & Mary J Blige perform it at the taping in LA for the DVD..
"He introduced the song by talking about how his kids always ask him why bad things happen like 9/11 and riots and bombings and things like that and the whole song is along the line of "why do we do this to each other?" and "why can't we all live in harmony" kind of idea. It's a combination of Mary J singing her heart out and Will rapping. It was realllllllly intense. We were all pretty quiet during it b/c some parts are pretty sad"
