Tinashe, Cody Simpson Shoot Music Video for Denim & Supply Campaignby Ali Szubiak | PopCrush
According to PEOPLE, Tinashe, Cody, Hailey Baldwin and Bella Hadid shot a music video in conjunction with Ralph Lauren’s Denim & Supply’s fall 2015 campaign. They recorded a remake of the ’70s hit “Express Yourself” at New York City’s Electric Lady Studios. For those of you with zero knowledge of music history, Jimi Hendrix built the legendary recording studio, though he died shortly after it was finished. Major artists like Bob Dylan, John Legend, Erykah Badu and Kanye West have since recorded there, so it’s kind of a big deal.
Cody, who lends his newfound laid-back sound to the track, was thrilled with the opportunity, saying, “Being able to play guitar at Electric Lady, it was just so sick. I’m a crazy Hendrix fan, so being there was rad for me.”
Tinashe also elaborated on the experience, saying, “The set was really fun. We had a dance break…I don’t even know what to call it…a parody type thing that we were filming, and it just brought out all of the moves.”
That dance break, however, did not extend to all parties involved. Cody “Crazy Hendrix Fan” Simpson clarified that he didn’t partake in any dancing, choosing instead to be boring as he “just stood there with [his] guitar and was chilling.”
If you’re wondering whether it was painfully awkward for Cody to work alongside Bella Hadid (aka his ex-girlfriend Gigi Hadid’s sister), wonder no more. Cody confessed, “It was interesting. I never thought I’d do modeling with my ex-girlfriend’s sister, which is strange. But she’s a super-rad girl and a cool friend, so it was cool.”
