The 2015 Emmys featured an unexpectedly delightful music moment when Mary J. Blige joined forces with two of TV’s best actresses — Taraji. P Henson (Empire) and Kerry Washington (Scandal).
In a new Apple Music commercial, Blige invites Henson and Washington over to her house to sing along to some tunes, air drum and reminisce about Slick Rick. Of course, the main point was to remind you that Apple Music exists, costs $9.99 a month and creates playlists for you based on your listening habits.
“It’s like you have a boyfriend who makes you a mixtape in your laptop!” Washington exclaims during the commercial. Ummm…sure. Regardless, it’s awesome seeing these three together.
In other Apple-related advertising news, the Beats By Dre line of headphones is branching outside popular American sports and setting its sights on Rugby for its #TheGameStartsHere campaign.
“Making spots about basketball and football isn’t always easy but they’re so popular,” Omar Johnson, Beats’ chief marketing officer, told The Drum. “Rugby is niche. We wanted to create something that reflected that it’s a sport not just about the player or the team; it’s about national pride.”
