LOS ANGELES (Top40 Charts) - Boyz II Men
members Nathan Morris, Wanya Morris, Shawn Stockman, and Michael McCary have decided to take a different approach to taping the video for "The Color
Of Love," the first single from Full Circle, their Arista Records debut due out June 11.
Each member will tape his own segment of the video with a separate director in a different country with the purpose of capturing the color of the native people. Nathan will travel to Accra, Ghana with directors Benny Boom and Little X. Wanya will head to San Juan, Puerto Rico to work with Chris Robinson. Shawn, currently in Tokyo, Japan, has been teamed with Hype Williams. And Michael will visit Jaipur, India to collaborate with Little X, who will edit the entire piece.
Antonio "L.A." Reid, Arista Records president and CEO, said that he has never been involved with a video project more ambitious. "Boyz II Men have always maintained a certain mood with their music, and that couldn't be better reflected than with the theme of this clip--unity and brotherhood, a multi-cultural celebration in these difficult times," he said via a statement. "There is no better group to pull it off than these four guys."
The song, produced by Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds, was the most added at radio this week.
