JAYQ THE LEGEND Takes On TWERKING & Jail-Distancing With “SO BAD” Video
The animated music video takes you on a journey starting at the Twerk Court House, where JayQ The Legend presides. Bad twerkers are taken into custody and inadvertently subjected to an overcrowded jail cell. As the women come to terms with their twerking, as well as the injustice of not being able to social distance, Judge JAYQ THE LEGEND offers them leniency. He provides each of the women with respectable jobs… working for him.
The visual continues with JAYQ THE LEGEND’S signature Bentley, pool parties, fashion shows, and a high energy stage performance. The music video will make you smile, likely laugh out loud, and perhaps ponder the impact of twerking, social distancing, and prison overcrowding. Judge JayQ The Legend finally orders a #twerkatorium against awful twerking making it an offense punishable by career re-education.
JAYQ The Legend reveals that the SO BAD music video was supposed to be a live music video shot in March, but when the Coronavirus pandemic started to grip the nation, the plans had to shift. “We were planning to work with top fashion blogger, Fashionbombdaily”, says JAYQ THE LEGEND, “and many others, including a 2019 SuperBowl winner, and many top commercial dancers. The pivot to animation was swift, but no easy task. The storyline was meant for people, without software challenges and limitations. We still plan to bring the music video to life, as soon as we are cleared to do so. Either way, the need to curb the twerking “pandemic” is now and we need to begin the campaign for a social media “twerkatorium”, a moratorium on twerking.
MIRIAM BAVLY, CO-CEO of BREAKOUT MUSIC and director of the music video, agrees with JAYQ THE LEGEND, “Twerking doesn’t impress me as a path to female integrity and empowerment. In 2020, and in the era of ‘ME TOO’, the entertainment business should be discouraging further degrading of femininity. Twerking provides our kids and teenagers of both genders with confusing messages, which is unavoidable these days on so many social media platforms. We should all stand with JAYQ THE LEGEND, help our women respect themselves and encourage a “twerkatorium”. It is time to reverse the twerk curse!”
In addition to his hot new single, “SO BAD”, JAYQ THE LEGEND has recently been nominated for a Hollywood Music in Media Award for his BILLBOARD and RADIO charting single BODY TALK. “It has been an incredible journey so far with that magical song”, says JAYQ THE LEGEND, “as the lyrics are autobiographical, closely reflecting my relationship with women.
“To all the working girls and career women, you are SO BAD. Please continue to inspire us all. To all the good humans in prisons all over the world you are not forgotten. Finally the #world needs a #TWERKATORIUM to address the #pandemic of awful twerking. It has infected every country, all races-and-ages, from 3 years on up to 93. We must all #unite worldwide to reverse the curse #reversethetwerkcurse #twerkatorium #sobad the #twerkatorium revolution starts on Tic Tok and IG.” – JayQ The Legend
