Eric Bellinger has released “Dirty Dancing,” the second single from his album Eazy Call, and he shows just that in the song’s visuals. Shot by Riveting Entertainment and directed by Arrad, Eric’s “Hotbox” collaborator Ne-Yo joins in for the hilarious and light-hearted video. The uptempo track will get you on the dance floor, which Eric and Ne-Yo decide to tear up when they get together. After hot boxing in the car and having enlightening conversations, Eric spots his muse and makes a beeline to win her over by posing as a dance instructor. Equipped with pink spandex and questionable choreography, he leads the dance class to impress and get his girl. Hilarity ensues when Ne-Yo discovers Eric’s plan and decides to join in as his trusty assistant.
In a press release about the video, Ne-Yo says, “This is a summertime BOP! The song is infectious and fun, as is the video. Makes you wanna dance. What’s better than that?” It’s pretty clear that Eric and Ne-Yo make a great team, and we’d be open to seeing more collabos from the duo, especially if more dancing is involved. Eric goes on to say, “I remember sending the song over to Ne-Yo & just remember hoping he’d jump on it. One night he hit me & told me to come by the lab but didn’t say for what. When I walked in he said, ‘Surprise!’ He pressed play and he had recorded his verse for ‘Dirty Dancing,’ I couldn’t believe it!”
Eric is currently on his Eazy Call Tour, and we’re ready to see what other tracks from the album he’ll decide to drop as singles next. Watch the video for “Dirty Dancing” right here to see if Eric and Ne-Yo make the right moves, especially when you get to the end.
