David Gandy teams up with Jennifer Lopez for her new 'First Love' Video

David Gandy, the man of the deep blue eyes, is set to make his music video debut playing Jennifer Lopez's boyfriend for her new single First Love, the second from her album A.K.A.

In this first peek of the video we can see Jennifer Lopez in a passionate embrace with supermodel David Gandy within a steamy love scene, promising a real sizzler video. "The chemistry between Jennifer and David was amazing. There were definite sparks between them and the video is going to be one of her steamiest yet."

Mother-of-two Lopez revealed in an radio interview earlier this month with Elvis Duran that she had a 'great time' working with Gandy on the video, which was shot by famed photographer Anthony Mandler. “He’s a great guy and we had such a great time making the video. He may have been shirtless occasionally, but for the most part he had clothes on!”
Shot in the California earlier this month, despite of less-than-glamorous conditions David recalls: "We shot in the desert outside LA expecting it to be really hot but the weather turned. The winds were incredibly strong and created almost sand storm like conditions, so it turned out to be freezing making the filming conditions a bit challenging. The crew were in protective goggles, hats and scarves and we were facing the elements, sometimes in minimal clothing - but the atmosphere on set was great and we all had a lot of fun"

While the video won't be unveiled till later this month, the British model said about the video: "I can't be too specific about the video at this point as it's not out yet, but I play her love interest." "I've been asked if I'd take part in music videos before and I've always said no, but I jumped at the chance of working with a music icon such as Jennifer. It would be great fun and an experience which is a little bit different to the things that I’ve done before,” explained Gandy. “The treatment included a lot of iconic fashion references and the director, Anthony Mandler is very well respected having worked with artists like Jay-Z, Rihanna and Taylor Swift, so it was an exciting opportunity.”

A million miles from the calm waters of Light Blue, then - but equally as much of a must-watch by the sounds of it starting on 17 June this year.
