The trio previewed the visuals yesterday (March 31) to celebrate the Trans Day Of Visibility. The video will star trans actor Indya Moore, known for their role in the hit FX series Pose.
“A stunning new visual for @robynkonichiwa and @mapeiofficial’s Buffalo Stance, directed by the incredible @IndiaSleem @Objectandanimal and starring queen @Indyamoore with a host of beautiful souls,” Cherry wrote on Instagram, sharing a snippet of the video.
“Sending all my love, strength, and solidarity to the inspiring trans community today on #TransDayOfVisibility. Stand proud in your Buffalo Stance.”
The new version of the 80s hit was released in March and saw Robyn transforming the track into a slinky Scandipop song, slowed down and stripped back with electronic shimmers and layered vocals. Mapei delivered a fresh take on the original’s iconic rap, while Dev Hynes handled production.
Robyn and Mapei’s “Buffalo Stance” reworking is the first release to be taken from a forthcoming collaboration album that Cherry has in the works. The full record is expected to be released later this year.
