50 Cent has decided to choose Destiny's Child member Kelly Rowland to star in the music video for his upcoming single, "Baby By Me" which features Ne-Yo.

Although early speculation suggested the two were in a relationship, it was later discovered they are shooting Fif's latest music video together.

Getting cozy in what could be deemed an unexpected pairing, Kelly Rowland and 50 Cent linked up for a video shoot recently. While they're not dating, Rowland does appear as the leading lady in the rapper's "Baby By Me" music video. The new lead single from 50's Before I Self Destruct features Ne-Yo and is swiftly moving up the R&B/ Hip Hop songs chart. No word on when the video will premiere... although it should be soon.

Ne-Yo informed fans of a music video being in the works late last week.

"Haven't been on in a couple of days," he wrote Friday (October 16) morning. "I've been gearing up for my b'day celebration which is this weekend and the Baby by me video with 50." (Ne-Yo's Twitter)

Speaking with radio personality Rickey Smiley earlier this month, Fif briefly touched on the song's overall feel.

"I went to the studio in LA and Polow [da Don] had already sampled his favorite part from 'I Get Money' in to the actual record," Fif explained in an interview. "And what's interesting, in hip-hop, we sample music a lot is traditional, but to sample our own lyrics? You know, it just felt like it was something new and I wrote something that was a little more sexual. There was an option to write love on a record, but that was kinda reserved for LL Cool J."

The Grammy-winning singer recently said Fif insisted on using his vocals on their joint record much to his surprise.

"He reached out," Ne-Yo revealed in an interview. "I always say he did the majority of the heavy lifting. [The song] was pretty much done by the time he sent it to me. He said, 'I just need you to put something on it.' He gave it to me, I wrote my part, sent it back and the rest is history. When he first sent me the joint, I was like, 'You don't need me for this,' I thought the beat was hot, what he was talking about was hot. I just tried to add to the hotness." (MTV)
