Milwaukee native and Brooklyn-based artist, Queen Tut just shared the video for the Q the Sun produced banger, “Cantaloupe.”
Directed by Milwaukee’s Von Harris, the video brings the life Queen Tut’s lyrics and Q the Sun production with bold prints, soft pastels, and bright neons.
In addition to the video, Queen Tut created an accompanying Lookbook, which was shot by Milwaukee photographer Mahdi Gransberry. The Lookbook features models from Milwaukee and includes Gabrielle Tesfaye, Britell Higgins, Shaverik Allen, Lilo Allen, Michael Jaameer, Lorde Freddee, and Yasmeen Daniel.
Tut promotes individuality, black beauty, and personal style in this unique, boundary-pushing editorial. With the assistance of Fashionable Demand’s creative set-director Michael Ja’Ameer, plus the aid of multi-talented artist & choreographers Britell Higgens & Shaverick Allen, Queen Tut steps closer to the goal of bridging Milwaukee’s music scene with the waves that are happening throughout New York City.
“I did a lookbook because the song itself is written about my eclectic style choices and personality. I had this vision, and My best friend Michael Jaameer helped me with creative direction. I thought a lookbook paired with the video would showcase/capture the essence of my style background (I at one point was a fashion buyer and wardrobe stylist) and love for street fashion, vintage clothing, and my love for people of color. We are beautiful.”
