Memphis Hip Hop/Rock band, Freesol have been able to do a lot of cool things since becoming the flagship band to sign to Justin Timberlake’s fledgling record label, Tennman Records. In October of last year, the group teamed up with JT to release the group’s breakthrough single and video, “Role Model,” from their forthcoming debut album No Rules. Now this time the group has not only teamed up with Justin for their new single, but it also features JT’s friend and mentor, Timbaland. That single is the song “Fascinated”, which is Freesol’s first single to be serviced to Top 40/Mainstream outlets. Buzz for the song has been growing since it was also released promotionally at the same time as the group’s online hit, “Role Model.” Now “Fascinated” is really starting to make an impact as fans are beginning to catch a glimpse of the music video for the song.
The Colin Tilley (Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, Diddy-Dirty Money and others) directed video shows the band in a futuristic lab/studio being observed by Justin Timberlake and Timbaland (very similar to Dr. Dre and Eminem’s cameo roles in 50 Cent’s 2003 video “In Da Club”) As the band plays in scenes with and without Timberlake in this sci-fi looking studio is also filled with many sexy ladies to keep them all company. Of course it wouldn’t be an Interscope video (Tennman’s distributor) without many appearances of the now well known Beats By Dr. Dre headphones. The video was first published on Freesol’s Vevo account on Christmas Eve of last year. Since then, the video has been seen over four hundred thousand times so far. As the unique look to the video continues to get out there, it looks like Freesol has nothing but good things to look forward to in 2012!
