“Perfect” is also featured in a new global ad campaign for Chanel’s “Chance” fragrance. Directed by Jean Paul Goude (Grace Jones), the commercial is choreographed by Ryan Heffington(Baby Driver, Sia, “Kenzo World”). Watch it at https://youtu.be/vfbDVfGBU0k.
“‘Perfect’ is a song I initially started with my brothers from Brazil, Tropkillaz,” Spiegel explains. “We’ve been obsessed with the latest wave of Baile Funk coming from Sao Paulo, but we decided to put our own twist on it. I do music for all of Jean-Paul Goude’s projects, and when he reached out about this Chanel commercial that he was directing and Ryan Heffington was choreographing, I immediately thought of this track we had started. I played it for Jean-Paul, and he loved it. We decided to put some vocals on the song. Bia is someone that I’ve wanted to work with for a while, and I wanted someone on the track that embodies the fun spirit of Sao Paulo Baile Funk, so I flew down to Brazil and recorded MC Pikachu along with the Tropkillaz dudes.”
In addition to the new track, Spiegel also recently directed the web series “Wu Tang In Space Eating Invisible Sliders.” Shot in the style of ’60s and ’70s science fiction television shows such as “Star Trek,” the series stars Wu Tang Clan members RZA (having uploaded his consciousness into the computer RZA 9000), GZA and Ghostface Killah aboard their spaceship, the Wu-F-O, orbiting Earth while answering questions left by fans at 1-833-4-SLIDER and eating White Castle’s new all-vegetarian Impossible Slider (RZA and GZA are both vegan, while Ghostface Killah is a vegetarian).
