We here at the Newsroom were pretty surprised to see Jesse McCartney’s video for his new single (don’t call it a comeback, yo!), “Leavin.” It’s a far cry from his Beautiful Soul days, but maybe that sweet kid thing wasn’t working out for him. It’s a simple video but very racy. You know, he’s gotta prove he’s all grown up, not a teenager anymore, blah blah blah.
His album hits stores May 20th, and features his work with Sean Garrett, The Dream (“Umbrella, ella, ella”), The Clutch (seriously – there’s a guy named ‘The Clutch’), and Tricky Stewart. That is to say, Jesse isn’t just all grown up, he’s all R&B’ed out ’cause HE KNOWS YOU NEED SEXIN’. Or something. Jesse explains his video and then the actual video, below.
