Check out Chris Brown getting his behind-the-camera action on!

Breezy directed the music video for U.G.L.Y.'s debut single, "REDD"—and E! News has exlusively obtained behind-the-scenes footage of the Grammy winner lending his expertise to the chill-pop trio, whose name stands for "Under Greatness Lies You."

And under this video, described as "hauntingly intense," lies Brown, whose finished product premieres Monday on MTV2.

"We're a melting pot of music," explains guitarist Braxton, who has toured with 30 Seconds to Mars and Ashlee Simpson. "It's a cross section of R&B, reggae, punk, electronic music, and all of our other influences. The goal is to reach as many people as possible. We're pushing boundaries and incorporating so many styles into what we do."

Braxton's mates include 2009 Miss Teen USA Stormi Henley and Mijo, one of the featured performers in David LaChapelle's 2005 documentary Rize.

And the trio were in strong hands: Brown has lent his eye to a number of his own videos, codirecting "Kiss Kiss," "Turn Up the Music" and "Fine China," among others.
