Jack White worked with perhaps his most curious collaborator to date for the video to his latest Blunderbuss single, “Freedom at 21.”

The eclectic rocker tapped Hype Williams, the man behind some of the most influential hip-hop videos of all time, to helm the clip, which will arrive in full on July 16. White released a teaser clip today (July 12) on his official YouTube channel.

Williams, of course, is the man behind the groundbreaking music videos for TuPac and Dr. Dre’s “California Love,” Missy Elliott’s “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly),” The Notorious B.I.G. feat. Puff Daddy and Mase’s “Mo Money Mo Problems,” Jay-Z’s “Big Pimpin’,” Kanye West’s “Stronger” and West feat. Rihanna’s “All of the Lights” … among countless others.

The video looks like a stylistic homage to grindhouse horror films by way of Jonas Akerlund. In the just-released sneak peek, we see White shredding on his guitar alongside clips of a speeding muscle car.

White is well-known for hooking up with out-of-the-box collaborators. He’s recorded with everyone from Jimmy Page and Alicia Keys to Insane Clown Posse and comedian Stephen Colbert. He had Gary Oldman direct his NYC concert special, worked with Danger Mouse and Norah Jones on the strange collabo LP Rome and has led multiple genre varied music projects at once (The White Stripes, The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather). Our favorite of his collaborations, however, has to be Van Lear Rose, the brilliant 2004 Loretta Lynn album that White produced, co-wrote and appears on.

Check out the “Freedom at 21″ preview:

Drake Reveals Alicia Keys Collaboration

Drake Reveals Alicia Keys Collaboration

Posted on 14 May 2010 at 4:16pm

Drake confirmed Alicia Keys will appear as a guest on his forthcoming debut album during the Los Angeles stop of his Away From Home tour on Thursday night.

The Toronto MC broke the news to the crowd as the opening notes of “Fireworks,” slated to be Thank Me Later’s opening track, began to boom from the speakers.

“This right here is the first song that you will here when you put that disk in,” Drake said of Thank Me Later, due June 15. “It’s a song with myself and Miss Alicia Keys, it’s called “Fireworks.”

“Money just changed everything, I wonder how life without it would go,” he rapped. “From the concrete, who knew that a flower would grow/ Looking down from the top and it’s crowded below/ My 15 minutes started an hour ago.”

Drake premiered the track during the first stop of his tour and has been revealing more of the number with subsequent performances.

In Rolling Stone magazine’s Spring Music Preview, the So Far Gone superstar revealed the track would address his relationships with Lil Wayne, his own family, and a rumored romance with Rihanna.

Last month, Drake told reporters the song represents what his life is like at the moment.

“The song itself is the first song on the album; I think it’s the biggest indicator of what the album is gonna be like,” he said. “That’s why I picked that song to go first, and that’s why I wrote the first verse like that. It’s really where I am in my life right now. I know they’re looking forward to the album, so I want them to get a feel of how the story starts off.”
