Canadian crooner Mathew V has released the visual for his über-catchy “Broken,” and he’s enlisted some drag talent to add some pizzazz.
The music video features Mathew and several pals going around in front a white wall. Among the cast are two Vancouver-based drag queens, Ilona Verley and South East, who Mathew describes as “some the most sickening drag artists I have ever seen in my life.”
Mathew saw Verley perform his first single, “Tell Me Smooth,” at a club: “I was so flattered and in shock, I knew she had to be in the 'Broken' video. Ilona has always been outspoken and brings fashion, performance art and aesthetic to a whole new level.”
As for South, he bragged that the drag performance is able to twerk while doing a handstand. “Last night, when I saw her perform, she unfolded herself out a suitcase. I literally screamed,” he added.
