While his ‘NSYNC-mate Lance Bass is making waves in outer space, Joey Fatone – like Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst – just wants to direct. Already a veteran in front of the camera, Fatone recently filmed a video for Latin music star Luis Fonsi in Florida, where the two were high-school friends and members of an a cappella pop group called Big Guys.
The clip is for Fonsi’s “Secret,” the lead single from his first English-language album, Fight the Feeling, due July 2.
In the video, Fonsi plays the secret lover of a female celebrity (who looks strikingly similar to a certain woman who has recently been rumored single). The clip ends with a scene at a party, where Fatone makes a cameo appearance.
Fonsi recorded Fight the Feeling at the same time as Amor Secreto, his third Spanish-language album, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart. Some of the songs on Fight the Feeling are translated versions of Amor Secreto tracks, although Fonsi co-produced and co-wrote some new material specifically for the English album. Producers on the album include Steve Morales (Enrique Iglesias), Rudy Perez (Christina Aguilera) and Oliver Leiber (Paula Abdul).
Fatone, who starred in last year’s “On the Line,” will appear in “My Big Fat Greek Wedding,” which opens April 14.
