Will.i.am’s remix to “Scream & Shout” (featuring Britney Spears, Diddy, Hit-Boy, Waka Flocka and Lil Wayne) turned out to be so wild that he needed to shoot a video for it. But actually, we’ll just let him explain why a video was necessary. In his words: “It’s turnt up, amplified, maximized, screaming, shouting–I never thought that a remix could be this freaking crazy. Remixes have always been important, but this one…it’s so freaking fresh that we had to do a video for it. Usually a remix just comes and it’s a part of the initial but, this one needed a freaking video.” Peep the video set footage above.
