NUEX Goes Behind The Scenes Of Their Video For Billie

Camille and Teddy of NUEX unveil the process behind their recent video for “Billie.”   The duo hops in a car and drives from Maryland to Virginia for the filming of the video that is a tribute to the life of late jazz singer Billie Holiday. The actual preparation and work for the clip is lighthearted compared to the final clip that does a good job conveying the emotional gridlock that held Holiday captive to fame and addiction.
