"Dreamgirl" was filmed over two days earlier this summer by Dave Meyers,
who besides directing some of DMB's best-known clips has helmed music videos
for artists such as Outkast, Kanye West, Jay Z and Jennifer Lopez. Mr. Meyers
was nominated for 6 MTV video music awards this year alone for his work on
Missy Elliot's "Lose Control."
The video was shot in various locations around Brooklyn and Harlem in New
York City. A highly conceptual episodic clip, the video features Ms. Roberts
as the dream girl with the members of Dave Matthews Band inhabiting her
dreams. This is Ms. Roberts' first filmed role since the birth of her twins
"Dreamgirl" is not the only place that DMB can be seen on television. The
band has also joined with the NFL ON CBS to star in a series of promotional
spots featuring the album's title track, "Stand Up." The spots are scheduled
to debut this weekend during CBS Sports regular programming.
