Chris Brown and Justin Bieber haven’t exactly been hush-hush about their upcoming video together, “Next 2 U,” tweeting photos (like the one seen above) and updates from the video’s dark and elaborate set. Now fans can get a taste of Brown’s unfinished “Next 2 U” clip, which leaked last night (June 6). Watch a rough cut of the epic short film below.
The Colin Tilley-directed video not only clocks in at almost eight minutes, but it starts off with several minutes of acting from Bieber and Brown. Following an explosion of near-apocalyptic proportions, Brown and Bieber meet amidst the rubble, overturned cars and flames. Brown dances away his fears and croons the sweet track, while Bieber searches for the girl he’s seen with during the cinematic video’s opening. Bieber and his lady love are reunited, ending the video with a smooch.
The video’s “rough cut” status is visible, and no official release is known for the clip, which was filmed at Universal Studios. “Next 2 U” is off Brown’s latest release, “F.A.M.E.”
