Motteo Subverts the Age of the Twink “Bushwick Boys”

In debut music video “Bushwick Boys,” Pop Artist Motteo Subverts the Age of the Twink.

“Bushwick Boys” captures the queer underground of New York City in its most raw and unfiltered state. Through a VCR lens, Motteo and his cast of racy Brooklynites seduce the viewer to both consume and become The Bushwick Boy. Lyrically, the song shocks. Motteo teases,“On Dekalb I lost my way/ […] What’s my worship? B***h, I’m gay.” As the song progresses, he takes you deeper into his sexy and rebellious Bushwick esthétique: duct taped nipples, tongue wrestling, and glitter-splattered bodies.

This is the first music video from the Brooklyn based pop artist and was entirely self-produced/executed, and NYC made.

About Motteo: After giving up his training as a classical musician, he sold his car and moved to Brooklyn to fully submerge himself in the queer pop scene. He describes his debut single, “Bushwick Boys,” as a “sarcastic proclamation of my own self worth as a young, queer creative in this big city.” Valuing true to himself artistry, Motteo’s leather and sheer shirts create the glittery and alluring exterior—to engage with his music is to engage in a disruption of the conventional.
