Grab it on our BANDCAMP

But PLEASE make sure to check the amazing video where Brazilian Queer artists live out the fantasy of the American dream in new music video  shot on no other place but Rodeo Drive.

Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and based in the USA, recording artist Leopold Nunan who had released a track with us alongside our good friends WILE OUT, teams up with supertalented drag queen Pietra Parker dropping flames on “Ballin’ in Beverly Hills“.

This babe is mix of hip-hop, afrobeat, trap and favela bass.

A bombastic track for the dance music lovers, says Leo. The BEST PART!!!!

track was produced by 16-year old phenomenon, heavy hitter from Mato Grosso, Brazil, Karan! THIS DUDE IS THE MF FUTURE!!!!

This will be Leopold’s 6th single release and Pietra’s music debut. The music video is a marathon of absurd looks directed by fashion photographer Will Cook. The video was all shot in Beverly Hills, on Rodeo Drive and at a private party at a friend’s mansion.

The lyrics were written by Leopold and Pietra in partnership with Z33R0, an East LA Latino composer, queer performer and activist.

We gathered all our friends to help shoot the music video, so we could realize this dream together. “Ballin” production was done 100% independently. There will be also

3 other versions, a techno version by Golden Kong, a riddim’ take by Klean and a arabian trap signed by Klap – curiously all Brazilian producers.
