Nick Cannon takes his comedic efforts into his new music. The husband of Mariah Carey has just released the music video for the new single “Famous,” where he channels music superstars like Michael Jackson, MC Hammer, and Gene Simmons from Kiss amongst others.
A huge fan of the late King of Pop Michael Jackson, Cannon previously told Rap-Up, “I’m a huge Michael Jackson fan, so to be in that ‘Rock With You’ costume and have it look exactly like the video was crazy.”
The track features R&B crooner Akon, who also makes an appearance in the clip. Of the new video Cannon says, “When it comes on, you can dance like you famous, drink like you famous, party like you famous.”
“Famous” is lifted off Cannon’s forthcoming album ‘Mr. Showbiz,’ which is scheduled for release later this year. It also serves as the theme song for his first-ever stand-up comedy special, which premiered on Showtime earlier this month.
