Rick Ross & Ne-Yo Shoot “Super High” (Pics/Video)
Celebrity stylist (and DrJays.com Live contributor) Kesha McLeod was recently on set at one of the most anticipated music videos in recent times—Rick Ross‘ “Super High” (featuring Ne-Yo).
The single is the lead track from Ross’s upcoming Teflon Don album (Def Jam). The label pulled out all the stops, hiring F. Gary Gray (Set It Off, Friday, The Italian Job) to ensure the visuals matched the sumptuous vibe of the track. The release date of the video is as yet unscheduled.
McLeod worked alongside veteran stylist Groovey Lew for the project. “Working with Groovey is an adventure in itself,” McLeod says. “From boarding the plane right to the last look, everything is an experience. This was a two-day shoot in the middle of nowhere, which can definitely be a difficult task when running for last-minute fix-its.”
She continues, “It was an absolute pleasure working with Mr. Gray and getting acquainted with fellow stylist April Roomet. I don’t want to spoil too much till the release of the video!”
“Stacey Dash is wearing a custom vest by BStyle Inc., boots by Alexander McQueen and gloves by Lacrasia,” says McLeod. “Rick Ross is wearing a custom leather jacket by Groovey Styles, Levi 501‘s, sneakers by Christian Louboutin and accessories by Harley Davidson.”
“The scene on the blue bike was the best scene of the day,” McLeod recalls. “It was the last look, filmed on top of this mountain overlooking Lancaster, California’s desert—words can’t describe how beautiful it was! It was a toast to the day as they rode off into the sunset.”
“This scene was shot in a brothel meeting room. Ne-Yo’s in there, as are Rick’s crew Triple Cs and others (with plenty of Ciroc bottles, of course!)”
