In a recent interview with Rap-Up TV, August opened up about shooting the video with the “Anaconda” rapper, who also wrote the treatment.

“Nicki was very, very deeply involved with this one in particular, as far as the video goes,” he said. “She had a vision for it and she really, really is a big fan of the record, which was real important to me because it makes it that much more special.”

“No Love” is the latest single off August’s debut album Testimony.

Video: Beyoncé and Jay Z – ‘Bang Bang: Part One’

Beyoncé and Jay Z

Just days after wrapping their “On the Run Tour” with two sold-out shows in Paris, Beyoncé and Jay Z relive the magic in Part 1 of “Bang Bang.”

Directed by filmmaker and photographer Dikayl Rimmasch and soundtracked by an Ennio Morricone classic, “Bang Bang” is a trilogy of short films starring the couple that was shown during their two-and-a-half-month long tour.

In the black-and-white clip, the Carters play a modern day Bonnie and Clyde as they drive through the desert.

“In my first conversation on the telephone with Jay Z he explained his concept of On the Run,” Rimmasch told Nowness. “He said: ‘We’re not trying to do this literally, it’s not that we’re Bonnie and Clyde. We’re on the run from everything. On the run from becoming a cliché. On the run from doing the same thing again.”

“Bang Bang” is also being used in the trailer for their “On the Run” HBO special, which airs Saturday.
