American Idol Season 6 runner-up Blake Lewis just released his third album, Portrait of a Chameleon, but the hardest-working Idol in showbiz has found time to collaborate with buzzy rapper and fellow Seattle artist RA Scion on “Venus in Transit,” the video for which is premiering right here on Yahoo Music.
RA Scion — one-half of the hip-hop duo Common Market, who has toured and performed with the likes of Kanye West, Mos Def, Lupe Fiasco, Michael Franti, and KRS-One — co-wrote “Venus in Transit” with Blake. The haunting song was produced by Northwest EDM fixture Vox Mod, and the arty, moody, neon-lit video was lensed by local director Casey Sjogren.
Featuring dancers from the Pacific Northwest Ballet and filmed at Seattle dance club Q’s, cool pop/hip-hop/electronic mashup sound. See it here first!
