Download DJBooth's new App, The PLUG New York, NY-- Everyone's favorite gentleman, Fonzworth Bentley, has scored with the single "Everybody," featuring two big pop culture icons: Kanye West and Andre 3000. The single is featured on his long-awaited album CoolOutrageousLoversOfUniquelyRawStyle (C.O.L.O.U.R.S.), which is set to drop spring 2009.

The "Everybody" video, also featuring Andre and Kanye, was directed by newcomer Dion Watkins, who wanted the video to be an ode to groups like the Temptations. The video will debut on a new and free weekly feature on the iTunes Store called "Music Video of the Week" on October 7.

Bentley, who has shown his mentoring skills with the contestants of MTV reality hit From G's to Gents, is looking for 15 new G's to take under his wing for a second season, which will start taping later this year and air at the top of 2009. The G that makes it to the end of the competition will win $100,000, membership into The Gentleman's Club and leave with the skills to succeed in the real world.

In 2007, Fonzworth Bentley released his first book, using the same concept as the show, Advance Your Swagger: How to Use Manners, Confidence and Style to Get Ahead. It received praise from one of Bentley's mentors, Russell Simmons, who called it, "the right book at the right time written by the right man."
