Here’s Why Salma Hayek Wanted Jada Pinkett Smith to Be Naked for ‘Nada Se Compara’ Music Video

Salma Hayek was in the hot seat on Red Table Talk this week, but a few years back, she sat in the director’s seat for one of host Jada Pinkett Smith’s music videos.

Smith identified the Oscar-nominated actress — whom she met when they were both auditioning for a main role in the 1999 sci-fi film The Matrix that ultimately went to Carrie-Anne Moss — as one of three women who inspired her to start the Facebook Watch series three years ago. She also recalled calling Hayek to direct a music video for Smith’s 2012 song “Nada Se Compara,” which she wrote and recorded in Spanish to advocate against human trafficking.

“Her Spanish was perfect, her Spanish was like impeccable,” the Mexican-American superstar recalls. And while Hayek was in shock over Smith’s lingual ability, the Red Table Talk host remembers being shocked that Hayek would do the job under one condition: “She said only if I did it naked,” Smith recalled.

“It’s a love song about sex trafficking, and the stories about trusting a man that destroys you, luring you into sex trafficking. And I said, ‘I think it’s important that you are as vulnerable as these women,’ because the obsession that men have with women’s bodies, it’s really threatening for us,” The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard actress explained of her request. “And so she accepted to be as naked with her body as she was with her voice. And so she was very brave, she had never done it before.”

Smith recorded “Nada Se Compara” with her band Wicked Wisdom as part of the Don’t Sell Bodies campaign that fights against human trafficking on a global scale.

TWICE’s ‘Taste of Love’ Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales Chart

K-pop girl group TWICE scores its first No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart (dated June 26) as Taste of Love launches with 43,000 copies sold in the U.S. in the week ending June 17, according to MRC Data. It’s a record sales week for the nine-member act, and first top 10 for the group.

Like many K-pop releases, the CD edition of the album was issued in multiple collectible packages (four, including a Target-exclusive edition), each with assorted internal paper goods and randomized elements. Of the album’s 43,000 copies sold, the CD editions combined sold 39,000. The rest of the sales came from the album’s digital download.

TWICE replaces another K-pop act at No. 1, as Tomorrow x Together’s The Chaos Chapter: Freeze, falls 1-9 in its second week with 14,000 sold (down 65%). The last time two K-pop acts went back-to-back at No. 1 was when Blackpink’s The Album debuted at No. 1 on the Oct. 17, 2020-dated chart, one week after SuperM’s Super One: The 1st Album bowed atop the list (dated Oct. 10).

Also on the new Top Album Sales chart, efforts from Mammoth WVH, Migos, Polo G, Garbage, Maroon 5 and Prince debut in the top 10.
