(NEW YORK) – Cazwell’s latest jam, “Loose Wrists,” is old-school hip-hop with a beat that is purposely simple and bass driven and a message that is crystal clear: he aims to make America Femme again.

“It’s about time we all embrace femme,” says Cazwell.  “Whether we are gay or straight when men get in touch with their feminine sides, it gives a real sense of empowerment.”

It’s especially important now, he feels, because “we have a President that wants to take us off of the census and a Vice President that believes shock therapy will cure gayness.  At the end of last year, I vowed to be as gay as possible with my music and videos. We have to be more visible than ever and I hope I inspire that.”

Along with the track, Cazwell has released a music video for “Loose Wrists” that stirred a social media frenzy last week when he posted the above photo to his Instagram.  The photo features Cazwell and his male dancers in pastel-colored lace shorts by designer Hoza Rodriguez of Hologram City.

“I was surprised by the reaction because the outfits are way more conservative than the shirtless guys in Speedo’s and jockstraps I typically have in my videos.”

Teen Vogue, Maxim and Allure Magazines all wrote features about Cazwell’s Lacey Shorts for Men.  He says he intends to wear them out in public, too.

“Hell yeah, I’m going to wear them all summer! You’ll probably find me at the corner deli at four in the morning wearing a pair with a matching speedo underneath. “

He won’t be the only one either.  Cazwell says, “Hoza has even been contacted by girls wanting to buy the shorts for their boyfriends.  I’m not surprised. I could see Pharrell sporting lace on The Voice.”

The shorts were originally planned to be jogging suits.  “I wanted five pastel velour jogging suits for the video but we couldn’t get them to look the way we wanted,” explains Cazwell. “I was really stressed out about it so I took a nap and when I woke up, I called Hoza up and said, ‘Lace. Let’s just use lace and have the guys in white briefs.’”

It turns out lace is much easier to work with than velour.  Hoza was able to whip up the outfits quickly.

Cazwell’s career started in downtown New York with songs like ‘Ice Cream Truck,’  ‘No Selfie Control’ and ‘Rice & Beans’.  Cazwell has amassed more than 10 million views on Youtube and over 1 million digital streams and downloads.

His last full-length album, Hard 2 B Fresh, was released in 2015 on the Brooklyn indie label, Peace Bisquit.  “Loose Wrists” is the first single off Cazwell’s new music label, Snow Cone.

Lacey Shorts aren’t his first foray in fashion, either. Last year Cazwell debuted his ‘Ice Cream Truck’ underwear with design collaborator Geoffrey Mac.  The collection sold out entirely in its first month.

“My Fire” is the fifth single release from “Moodswings,” Tony Moran’s double-album of music featuring 17 original dance songs and 14 original pop, R&B and alternative productions sung by today’s leading dance artists including Martha Wash, Zhana Roiya, and Jason Walker. The album draws inspiration from Moran’s 30 years in dance music and includes many amazing collaborators including with former American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi.

“Collaborating with talented artists like Nile and Kimberly is the fire that drives me to continue my artistry,” says Tony Moran.

“The fire that drives me is the rush I feel when connecting with an audience,” says Davis.  “It is pure exhilaration.”

“Hearing my words brought musically to life by supremely talented artists like Kimberly and masters like Nile Rodgers and Tony Moran is the fire that drives me,” adds the song’s writer, Mike Greenly.

Nile Rodgers and Tony Moran’s “My Fire” featuring Kimberly Davis is being released globally through Mr. Tan Man Music and is available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon as well as all other online music retail outlets.
