May 14, 2019—OTTAWA, ON. Hip hop/R&B artist Steph Marcantonio, a.k.a. queenyy, and distinguished First Nations Cree producer/choreographer Chev Cheechoo, a.k.a. chevdot, fuse their distinct musical styles and perspectives with their project queenyy x chevdot. They may be new in the Canadian music landscape, but they’re far from being rookies. Lifetimes of working with beats, dance, and songwriting is the common thread that attaches them both. The two are set to release their new single “Pretty Young Thing” on May 24, which will be followed by a music video on May 29th.
“Pretty Young Thing” is a song that captures the spirit of old-school heavy groove R&B while containing rhythmic elements that are very much rooted in modern day hip hop. Influences for the track range from Missy Elliot, Timbaland, and Aaliyah, and the video takes on a mysterious yet colourful feel.
The video brings viewers along for a ride while the duo bust out some moves at locations all around Toronto. It provides an intimate and up-close look at what queenyy and chevdot are all about, and invites new listeners to groove with them. queenyy and chevdot are just getting started, and are breaking new ground with a fresh sound that Ottawa hasn’t yet heard from hometown artists before.
