Shunda K’s debut solo album The Most Wanted dropped worldwide last week and the latest single from the record, “My Light” (MP3) featuring the bombastic female UK rapper, Tan, is already causing a commotion. The shooting of the video for the album’s second single “I’m Da Best” recently wrapped its Florida production and has now moved to Los Angeles for another week of shooting under the direction of Steven Andrew Garcia of The Masses (wearethemasses.com).
Garcia informs us that the clip “…will be featuring select wardrobe items from legendary fashion designer, Brian Lichtenberg (LINK) who has worked with some amazing artists like Peaches, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, MIA, and many others. Also, Trillon Galloway, who recently was featured in Michael Jackson’s last video, ‘Hold My Hand (feat. Akon)’ will play one of our main bullies.” See Lady Gaga wearing a Lichtenberg necklace in a still from her “Poker Face” video HERE.
Shunda K’s “I’m Da Best” clip is a direct assault on the Westboro Baptist Church (WIKI) and concerns a young boy who is harassed, called “faggot” by his peers, faces even more tension at home and how, with the help of his faith and the support of his role models Shunda K and Shon B, he overcomes these obstacles to stand tall. The video is Shunda K’s contribution to the ongoing “It Gets Better” Project (itgetsbetter.org) started by famed syndicated sex columnist Dan Savage as a place where young people who are lesbian, gay, bi, or trans can see how love and happiness can be a reality in their future.
To date, the project has received submissions from celebrities, organizations, activists, politicians and media personalities, including President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Adam Lambert, Anne Hathaway, Colin Farrell, Matthew Morrison of “Glee”, Joe Jonas, Joel Madden, Ke$ha, Sarah Silverman, Tim Gunn, Ellen DeGeneres, and Suze Orman among many others. The video for “I’m Da Best” will debut in mid-January. More stills from the clip can viewed HERE.
Shunda K’s debut solo album The Most Wanted arrives on the heels of two Shunda K mixtapes downloaded thousands of times each, US and Australian dates opening for electro superstar Peaches, a collab on the track and video for the Peaches song “Billionaire”, and the NME naming Shunda K to its “Cool List” and earmarking The Most Wanted’s first single “Here I Am To Save The World” as one of “10 Tracks You Need To Hear”.
