Openly gay rapper J.R., the self-appointed King of Gay Music and former Flavaworks model Mr. Saukei have teamed up to create the video for J.R.'s single "Will You Marry Me".

Shot between Chicago, Illinois and Tulsa, Oklahoma the mid-tempo track and video is a full out proposal that sweetly illustrates the theme of the song.

While the production quality of the track itself may be questionable, J.R. & Mr. Saukei make up for it with a tenderness expressed onscreen between two SGL men of color that is rarely seen. Black LGBT audiences are starving for positive images of our lives in the media and when one comes along no matter how small I think it's important to provide a platform.

Get into the video below. And for all of you Mr. Saukei fans (don't pretend like you haven't seen his work; I'm a fan. lol!) as an added bonus watch him talk about life after modeling here. (NSFW:Language)

Ok, Maybe I am too much of a singer to really think I want to hear the looped flatness of this track. However, I am kinda excited that Mr. Saukei adds much needed flavor to this week attempt at an engagement song.

Honestly, The Rapper couldn't find enough to say that made me feel that his lyricism even supported the fact that he really wanted to marry a man. It was all so lacking in luster to me.

I think the song has potential, if redubbed and really concentrate on the lyrics, otherwise hearing the same hook over and over again was bound to have me answer the question with a big fat NO!

Beautiful and noble intent. Crute video. Easy on the eyes lead characters. HORRIBLE, painful to listen to song.

Cute song, even if the lyrics were weak. But boo, you don't marry trade that everybody has already had.
