The Foreign Exchange – “Body” (Video)

Got the hookup. Like we needed another reason to get with that “Tales From The Land Of Milk And Honey” project by Foreign Exchange (out now). Phonte and Nicolay keep it pushing, only stopping long enough to drop a music video for their “Body” single. Watch above (the music, merged with the visual, and all that “Body” in there. Ah yes, Eye Candy)!

Here’s your hookup: Take this smoothed out jawn to your baby, and say, “Let’s forget the club this weekend and just chill… No ‘Netflix and’ nuthin’… just you and me.” Then click play on this jawn. And yooooo… you’re welcome.
