Rap-Up TV: On Set of RaVaughn’s ‘Better Be Good’ Video

From Compound University comes Ne-Yo’s newest student, RaVaughn. The R&B newcomer, who is signed to Ne-Yo’s label, stepped into the spotlight while shooting a video for her debut single “Better Be Good” in Los Angeles. Rap-Up TV was on set as she kicked her man to the curb in the TAJ-directed clip, which features Wale.

“I’m going through this rough patch with my boyfriend and I’m trying to work it out, trying to get it all together,” said the L.A. songstress. “He tells me he wants to go out. I’m hanging with my girls and they’re like, ‘We gotta go to this party. I’m like, ‘No, I’ma try to work it out with my boo.’”

She ends up going to the house party where she runs into her boyfriend, who is there with another girl. But that won’t stop her from having a good time. She breaks into a dance sequence with her girls as the crowd cheers her on.

RaVaughn’s Compound University/Columbia Records debut Love Always is due this summer featuring appearances from Ne-Yo and Marsha Ambrosius.

The full video for “Better Be Good” will premiere on Thursday, February 21.
