Following yesterday’s Nike ad, and her win against Magda Linette at the U.S. Open, Serena Williams is back starring in yet another commercial, this time for Beats by Dre. Narrated by legendary Queens rapper Nas, the clip, titled “Queen of Queens,” also features Nicki Minaj and a cameo from Nigel Sylvester.
The spot was appropriately shot in Queens, showcasing Serena and a group of dancers exploring how her various interests are not at conflict with one another.
“Women are so often pressured to define themselves as one thing or another— a wife, a mother, an athlete or a career woman,” says Williams. “But, we are so much more than the boxes we place ourselves in. And like all women, what makes me a true queen is all these things… and then some. Nicki and I loved collaborating with Beats by Dr. Dre on this powerful concept because it encourages all of us to think bigger and beyond limits or boundaries. It’s an inspiring message that celebrates what’s possible when we embrace being a queen.”
