The “Be Mine” music video is a classic romantic short film with a twist. Director Miriam Bavly and Cinematographer Paul Winters takes you on an epic adventure on location in Apache Junction, Arizona. Get your popcorn, gather a few friends “setback” and enjoy the old west legend of JayQ The Legend rescuing all the flowers with the help of his native Apache brother.
Born in St. Croix and raised in New Orleans, JayQ The Legend (TL) grew up surrounded by music. A survivor of an abusive childhood, he earned his law and MBA degrees to protect and mentor others. JayQ The Legend worked with many southern artists to ink record deals, and provided legal counsel to others, including DMX, Baby Joe and TEC.
A poet and prolific songwriter, JayQ TL co-founded BreakOut Music and kicked off his solo music career with his hit Body Talk, that hit #1 on the Billboard Reggae Charts, and continues to sustain US radio play for 3 years post- release in both Urban and R&B formats. Four of his recent 2020/21 music videos have been featured on MTVU and BET-JAMS. Be Mine, the song, charted in the number one position on Itunes leaping ahead of Bruno Mars and The Weekend in the first week. The cinematic, authentic western themed Be Mine video (a -la ole town road), on opening day, basked in over five million views on YouTube, and is still growing steadily. Be Mine broke into Billboard’s top ten R&B Digital Sales charts in only its second week. The flowery ballad Be Mine also broke into the top 40 on Mediabase R&B official radio chart in week two.
As a screenwriter and actor, his first movie (“The App that Stole Christmas”) for Holiday 2020 was licensed to Netflix and features several JayQ The Legend songs. The campy Christmas comedy reached approximately 20 million worldwide households on Netflix. Be Mine is the lead soundtrack song in the upcoming Christmas 2021 movie, The Drone That Saved Christmas, which includes a notable ensemble comedic cast.
