Nina Sky

Nina Sky is trading places in the video for “Day Dreaming,” the first single from their sophomore album Nicole & Natalie, due in July. In the Adam Sauermilch-directed clip, the twins date the same guy, share the same bed, watch the same movie, and hold the same hands. But despite their biological bond, their relationship is night and day. An unhappy Nicole argues with her man, while Natalie is head over heels in love. What you see is not always what you get.

Video Premiere: Nina Sky – ‘You Ain’t Got It (Funk That)’

Nina Sky

The last time Nina Sky graced fans with visuals as a duo, they were partying with their “Beautiful People.” Now the Queens natives are roaming the streets of New York in the Treezy-directed clip for “You Ain’t Got It (Funk That),” the lead single off their EP The Other Side. The twins groove to a backdrop of funky colors, goof off on some scaffolding, and even tease an interested spectator into thinking he scored their digits.

“We wanted to shoot a video that was reminiscent of Sagat’s ‘Funk Dat’ video, which is the song we sampled for ‘You Ain’t Got It,’” Natalie tells Rap-Up.com. “It was important to us that Treezy captured the same vibe and grainy look as the original video, so we shot half in the city streets with our friends. To contrast the street element and give a softer, more modern feel, we splashed it with colorful shots, some green screen action, and bam! ‘You Ain’t Got It’ came to life.”

Rap-Up.com has your first look at Nicole and Natalie’s funky new video below.

10 Questions for Nina Sky

Nina Sky

Nina Sky’s career seemed like it was coming to a halt when their sophomore album was repeatedly delayed. But the twins—who graced the charts six years ago with their omnipresent hit “Move Ya Body”—decided to take matters into their own hands. After a public break-up with Universal Records in 2007, and a heated rant earlier this year regarding Polo Grounds Music’s lackadaisical attitude toward their album Starting Today, Natalie and Nicole continued to create music.

Even after a demo they recorded with Bruno Mars’ production team, The Smeezingtons, ended up in the hands of “Impossible” singer Shontelle unbeknownst to them, the sisters remained undaunted and treaded forward with their first EP, The Other Side. The 9-track offering fuses house, freestyle, pop, and R&B for a collection that transcends the Queens neighborhood in which they were raised.

A week following their EP release, the girls take a breather from digital promotion to answer Rap-Up.com’s 10 questions. Nina Sky tackles everything from losing their record to Shontelle to side endeavors and even putting their label exec on blast.

Nina Sky has been laying low, quietly recording new material after experiencing problems with their label. The twins fine tune their sound and image on “You Ain’t Got It (Funk That),” a dance-pop jam from their upcoming EP The Otherside, coming later this summer. “We sampled one of our favorite dance joints from the 90′s, ‘Funk That’ by Sagat and flipped it w/ some Na**Sky melodies,” wrote Natalie and Nicole.
