Monica has begun shooting the video for “Until It’s Gone,” the new single from her upcoming album New Life. She was joined on set by her hubby Shannon Brown, and actors Brian White (“I Can Do Bad All By Myself”) and Malinda Williams (“Soul Food”) who, from the photos posted on Twitter, got way into character.
The video was directed by Diane Martel, who last worked with Monica in 1999 for “Angel of Mine.” She’s also the mastermind behind Beyonce’s “Best Thing I Never Had,” Ciara’s “Like A Boy” and “Ride,” and Alicia Keys’ “If I Ain’t Got You” and “Like You’ll Never See Me Again.”
The video depicts a car accident which meant the two actors had to undergo some “bloody” makeup treatments (see their pics in the gallery below!)
Monica tweeted while on set:
“Love when we shoot videos more like movies #UntilItsGone Diane Martel directing, SO honored 2 have Melinda Williams & Brian White as cast”
“Still Shooting #UntilitsGone Video is going to be deep, Diane Martel isn’t playing around. Lol”
“Video wrapped,Remember God is 4 u,so no weapon that forms against u shall prosper.Rest well knowing that M.B.”
We’ve been suspecting that Monica is pregnant, but she made sure to only take pics from the chest up. However, her friend Johnni Marie did tweet her: “THE GLOW BABY GIRL, THE GLOW! That’s all I’m going to say!” Could she be talking about a new mommy glow?
