Before Jay-Z wrapped his "Run This Town" video, featuring Kanye West and Rihanna, sources from the shoot have leaked footage.

Stylist June Ambrose reported from the set, however, kept details to a minimum.

"I can't tell you what I'm working on, this is a very big undercover job with three huge blockbuster hit stars," she said in a video. "And I'm going to tell you, this job is going to be absolutely outrageous. We have tons of security, major trailers over here...We're in an undisclosed place, I don't know what to expect." (YouTube)

Other people confirmed the music video's stars and expressed their reaction to working on the set and released images.

"YOOOO I JUST GOT OFF THE SET OF THE NEW JAYZ RIHANNA AND KANYE WEST VIDEOOO; I HAD SOOO MUCH FUN OMGGGG...," Laiza Semidey wrote via Twitter Friday (August 7) morning. "VIDEO: RUN THIS TOWN.. THE VIDEO IS FIRE; ARMY AND SAVAGE SH*T A LOT OF FIRE AROUND TOO. ITS CRAZYYYYYYY...rihanna leaving. yo its been a long day and morninggggg. rihanna leaving the set...@teejayf you will see when the video come out =)" (Laiza Semidey's Twitter)

All three artists were confirmed to perform Jay's Blueprint 3 single for the premiere of Jay Leno's new show next month.

Jay first broke the news of the impressive lineup to Access Hollywood's Shaun Robinson following Wednesday's NBC Television Critics Association panel in Pasadena, California. "I always come on strong!" he said when Shaun asked about the trio performing on Jay's first show on Monday, September 14. (Access Hollywood)

The song features Rihanna singing on the chorus as Yeezy drops one verse.

"This is Roc Nation/Pledge your allegiance...All black everything/Black cards, black cars, all black everything/And I draw them black birds/Riding with they Dillingers/I'll get more in Depp if you boys really real enough/This is La Familia/I'll explain later, but for now let me get back to this paper...Please follow the leader/So Eric B. we are/Microphone fiend, it's the return of the God/Peace God, it ain't nobody fresher...On the table screaming f*ck the other side, they jealous/We got a banquet full of broads/They got a table full of fellas/And they ain't spendin' no cake." ("Run This Town")

A release date for the upcoming music video has not been announced.
