Can Sanaa Lathan, star of The Perfect Guy, parlay the film’s No. 1 box-office bow into a hit song? The actress has teamed with Beyoncé’s “Drunk in Love” co-writer/co-producer Detail for her first-ever single, “Emotional,” featuring DeJ Loaf.
Inspired by Lathan’s love interests in the romantic thriller — Michael Ealy and Morris Chestnut — the track was co-produced by Choppa & Sidney.
Detail (a.k.a. Noel Fisher) won a Grammy earlier this year when “Drunk in Love” featuring Jay Z, won best R&B song. Detail’s additional credits include Wiz Khalifa’s “We Dem Boyz,” Lil Wayne’s “How to Love” and Ray J’s “Sexy Can I” featuring Yung Berg.
Below, see a version of the song set to clips from the movie:
