Quincy Brown was born to be a star and his new music video is more than enough proof.
In “Snuggle Up,” released on Brown’s birthday back in June, the son of model Kim Porter and R&B legend Al B. Sure croons about taking things to the next level with a girl he’s been feeling.
To celebrate its release, Brown, who’s also Sean “Diddy” Combs’ stepson, dropped a video for the song today, which he shot entirely on a smartphone. He said the move was inspired by John Legend, who used the same technique for his tune, “A Good Night.”
“Ever since I saw John Legend capture his video using the Google Pixel, I was honored that I would have the same opportunity to use Pixel to film my official video. I wanted to make sure that it had the same vibe and was the highest quality for my fans,” Brown said in a statement.
“Technology has always been paramount in my life and I still love how much we underestimate the power we can literally hold in our hands,” the actor, who’s fresh off his role in Fox’s hit drama STAR as Alexandra’s (Ryan Destiny) too-cute boo thing, added. “To have the ability to hone my photography skills and create professional camera-quality images with a phone is next level for me.”
The 27-year-old actor and model rely on tech to connect with his 2 million social media followers. And it looks like it’s paying off.
