On May 20, RedOne published two consecutive videos on his Youtube Channel. The first was his single “Don’t You Need Somebody,” and the second was a short clip of the single’s music video with International football star Cristiano Ronaldo.
Before the official music video went public, RedOne revealed in an interview with Al Arabiya that “Don’t You Need Somebody” featured his friends Enrique Iglesias, Shaggy and “Locked Away” singers R-City and Serayah.
