MTV News caught up with Jesse McCartney and Ludacris on the set of their ‘How Do You Sleep’ remix video shoot, with both artists promising the Sean Garrett-produced track is going to be the jam of 2009.

My boy Sean Garrett, who is probably one of the biggest songwriters of our generation, sort of facilitated the whole thing. Sean called up Luda, Luda hopped on the joint, and here we are shooting the video.”
