The clip, directed by Colin Tilley, is set to debut on April 8 and features appearances from collaborators Lil Wayne and Diddy. The song was released to iTunes this week and the original version appears on Diddy-Dirty Money’s Last Train to Paris album.

MJB revealed the news via Twitter. “My New Video 4 Some One To Love will premier next week! I’m Loving It Fam!!! Hope u will 2!! April 8th! Thank U Wayne and Puff!!!” she wrote.

The R&B veteran is currently working on her 10th studio album, having already put in studio time with producer Danja and songwriter Kevin Cossom. “Everything that I’ve done feels really good,” Danja previously told Rap-Up TV. “Great tracks, funky, you can dance to it. Some is a hybrid of 808s with very heartfelt, soulful piano lines on top of them. You dancing and you in the club, but you kinda feeling a certain way at the same time. Very emotional topics and kinda classic Mary in 2011.”
