Chanel West Coast drops a New Single

America’s bad ass sweetheart Chanel West Coast drops her new single/video “Old Fashioned” today featuring Nessly. The Quentin Tarantino-esque Wild West themed hip hop video was directed by Edgar Stevens and produced by Riveting Entertainment.

Comments West Coast:  “Old fashioned is a song I made about keepin’ it classy like they used too. There’s something about old Hollywood glamour that I respond too. Back in the day when people got together, spoke to one another and experienced life outside the worlds of our phone. Having values in which you come home for dinner, a man opens a car door, and finding love was going out on dates, not just sliding in DM’s. My whole upcoming project I’m taking it back to things that warm my heart, inspire me, and have a little nostalgia. But don’t get it twisted, I’m about women’s rights and leaps and bounds we as women have made.

Just want to see some real gentlemen and women out there keep it classy and sexy. At least part of the time lmfao!”
