Tuxedo (Grammy-nominated R&B/soul recording artist Mayer Hawthorne and Grammy-nominated hip-hop producer Jake One) has released the official music video for their single “Toast 2 Us.” The video for the tantalizing love song featuring special guest Benny Sings, off their latest album Tuxedo III, pays homage to a handful of the duo’s favorite classic album covers.

“‘Toast 2 Us’ is the first slow jam we’ve released as a single, so we wanted to do something different for the visual,” shares Tuxedo. “Re-enacting a bunch of classic album covers seemed like a good idea. Benny Sings shot his scene in a Super 8 equivalent pool in Amsterdam.”
Tuxedo recently wrapped a successful North American summer headlining tour in support of the album. The cross-country outing featured sold-out shows in Los Angeles, San Diego and Santa Ana. This November, Tuxedo returns to Japan for a round of appearances. Stay tuned to www.tuxedofunk.com for the latest tour dates and updates.
