While much of Justin Bieber‘s “Boyfriend” video remains top-secret, MTV News scored a visit to the set Thursday night, and the teen superstar offered up some insight into what Beliebers will see when the clip drops.
“The concept of this video, I mean it’s not like a steady concept,” he explained on the Cali-based set in between shots. “It’s not like ‘Justin follows this girl to this spot.’ No, it’s a bunch of amazing scenes: Like a fire scene, we have an ice scene.”
He continued that the video will also include some of his very fine dancing skills. “It’s kind of like bouncing back and forth,” he said. “And then there’s scenes of me and just a bunch of girl dancers, and just some great shots, great artistic shots, great shots of me smiling. It’s fun.”
Bieber and Tilley have worked together several times in the past, including on the VMA-nominated “U Smile,” as well as “Never Let You Go,” “Fa La La” (with Boyz II Men) and Chris Brown’s very cinematic “Next 2 U,” which features Bieber.
“The video’s really good. Colin has done a great job,” he said. “The lighting has been amazing and everything’s been so unique and I haven’t seen anything like it. So, I think people are going to be really surprised.”
“Boyfriend” is the lead single off Believe, expected to drop later this year. The song was co-produced and co-written by Mike Posner and Mason Levy. The album will also feature some production from Timbaland, Diplo and will.i.am.
