Timbaland’s "Know Bout Me"
Director Jennifer Trujillo crafted a creepy concept-driven video for Timbaland’s new single Know Bout Me (featuring Drake, James Fauntleroy and Jay-Z). Trujillo, who directs via A Common Thread, used an abandoned Los Angeles hospital for the backdrop of a story of a mysterious young woman’s search for a lost book. That book turns out to be a tome marked Property of T. Mosley a.k.a Textbook Timbo, which is also the name of Timbaland’s new studio album, his first in four years.The woman in the video, whose face is obscured by a cowl-like hood, first appears in a grimy hallway, littered with trash and broken doors. Later she strolls through an eerily vacant chapel, before winding up in a storeroom stuffed with dusty files. Graffiti-like song lyrics are omnipresent and grafted over the live action.
