The production duo Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis have released the music video for their collaborative single “He Don’t Know Nothin’ Bout It” featuring Babyface. The new visual cuts between scenes of Jam and Lewis in the studio and Babyface serenading the listener on his blue guitar as he sings to a woman about how she’s better off without her current man:
He don’t know nothin’ ‘bout it. ‘Bout time you found a man, yeah. He just beaten’ ‘round it, yeah. Girl he don’t understand, what you go through, he ain’t go a clue. What love really mеans to you. He don’t know nothin’ ‘bout it. He don’t know nothin’ ‘bout it. Talkin’ ‘bout all of thosе things he’s goin’ buy for you. Can’t even get a loan. Runnin’ ‘round town frontin’ like he take good care of you. But everybody knows, how can a guy think he fly when he’s still living at his mama’s home?
Although Jam and Lewis have been producing albums for nearly four decades with icons like Janet Jackson, Barry White, Yolanda Adams, Lionel Richie, Luther Vandross, and plenty more, “He Don’t Know Nothin’ Bout It” is their debut artist release. The collaboration has been in the works since Babyface presented the production duo with the Icon Award and performed alongside them at the 2019 Soul Train Awards. Jam and Lewis are set to release their first ever album of all original music in 2021.
Earlier this year, thousands of music lovers all over the world tuned in on Instagram as Babyface faced off with Teddy Riley in a Verzuz battle. Babyface also joined Boyz II Men on Saturday Light Live for a remote performance of “A Song for Mama,” the 1997 track which he produced and wrote. They were the third and final SNL at Home musical guests.
