The Reason

The Reason // Jonathan Fine

Director: Jonathan Fine

Synopsis: Dressed in nothing but a thong and a see-through dress, Brooklyn-based queer hip-hop artists Saint Ahmad and Prince Harvey mysteriously walk into a vacant clothing store late at night and demonstrate loudly and proudly why they are in fact the reason that your baby mama’s leaving and your baby daddy’s dreaming.

Styled by Saint Ahmad himself, this music video showcases all facets of Saint’s eclectic character–from charming and playful, to narcissistic and erotic–and contrasts (and at times blends) his audacious, transgressive aesthetic with the traditional, chic look of the store.

Shot at the Roni Rabl showroom in NYC’s Fashion District.
