Multifaceted pop innovator BAYLI has released her latest single “TELLY BAG”, an ode to BAYLI’s love for Telfar, fashion, her queer identity and bad female dogs of all genders, sizes and colors. The music video sees a cast of LGBTQ designers from its community — including Diallo Mitch, Brendan Jordan, Kid Kenn, Blossom, and more — coming together to celebrate their individuality and personal style.
“It’s always been important to me to shine a light on communities that are often underrepresented, so I really wanted to make sure the music video for ‘TELLY BAG’ was a total celebration of our community and all that is. gay,” BAYLI says on the song. “All of the models in the video are legendary queer artists and designers who we asked to come dressed as their most authentic selves while accessorizing with gender-nonconforming Telfar pieces fresh from the SS22 show. From Brendan Jordan , who you might know as the iconic kid who rocked DOWN on a new local channel a few years ago, to Kidd Kenn, one of the first publicly signed gay rappers on Def Jam Records, the video sums up what it feels like to be a bad female dog in 2022”
“TELLY BAG” is a tribute to the powerful impact of black and queer art and expression in 2022 so far, so Telfar being the centerpiece of this track was only fitting,” BAYLI continues. “The audience for which ‘TELLY BAG’ was designed reflects the brand’s motto ‘not for you – for everyone'”
BAYLI has long been ahead of the curve and showing the world how black and queer art is changing culture by paying homage to it with upbeat and resourceful pop anthems. Combining masculine and feminine energy in a futuristic and avant-garde package, BAYLI is an independent artist who recently completed a US tour with SHYGIRL.
Her fearless take on what it means to be a 21st-century artist and her genre-bending output are all delivered with a fierce, sleek edge and unflinching confidence inspired by her Brooklyn background. With more music to come, BAYLI released their first New York Stories EP last year – which included standout tracks “boys lie”, “foreigner” and “sushi for breakfast” – to acclaim from BBC Radio 1. , Paper Magazine, Dazed, The FADER, Hypebae, Out Magazine, them., NYLON, Wonderland, Numero, CLASH, and more.
