Prepare to be shook, you guys, because Nia Sioux just dropped a new music video inspired by James Charles, and wow, talk about a dream team. In the new vid (which dropped on Thursday, February 7), the Dance Moms star turned the bright colors in James’ new Morphe eyeshadow palette into movement. That’s right, the brunette beauty showed off her amazing dance skills to an original song by James, and we cannot stop watching! Lucky for you guys, we’ve got all the exclusive behind-the-scenes deets on the exciting new video!
“James Charles is young but a true powerhouse and unlike any make-up artist I’ve ever seen,” the director and choreographer of the video, Kristin McQuaid, told J-14 exclusively. “This is what drew me in to create this video and of course to his original music.”
And Nia was honored to be a part of it.
“This project was so amazing to do and I was thrilled when Kristin asked me to be a part of it,” the 17-year-old told us. “It is a privilege to work with so many talented professional dancers. To be included in such an incredible group of people is humbling. The video turned out so well and I am so glad that her vision came to life in the performance. I can’t wait to see what other projects we do in the future!”
And the Bold and the Beautiful actress could not stop gushing over Kristin — who’s also choreographed Grace Vanderwaal and danced with Britney Spears and Mandy Moore — and it couldn’t have been sweeter.
“When I get to work with Kristin I always get excited,” she continued. “Kristin consistently finds something new and different to do every time we work together. She really brings out the best in me. From the very beginning, Kristin has believed in me and my capability as a dancer. She has high standards for me and that’s something that helps me grow into a better artist.”
Well, with three people as epic as Nia, James and Kristin, it’s honestly no surprise that the results were amazing.
