Young M.A becomes the first mainstream artist to direct a pornographic film.
“Here at Pornhub we remain steadfast in our commitment to providing talented individuals with a global platform to exercise their creativity. Young M.A is an incredible artist who has captivated the rap industry with her straightforward storytelling imbued with gritty flow,” – Corey Price, VP, Pornhub
The Brooklyn-born, gay rapper is the first mainstream artist to direct a pornographic film for a leading adult entertainment platform and was given full artistic freedom to control all aspects of the video, including casting and production. The film, titled “The Gift” is the first installment of a new, ongoing series from Pornhub Premium, “The Visionaries Directors’ Club,” which will feature original pornographic films from creative of all kinds in an effort to diversify porn production and help create more varied content – paying particular attention to Pornhub’s female audience.
Young M.A’s debut film depicts sensual lesbian sex and features an assortment of well-known adult entertainment stars, including Anya Ivy, Yara Skye, Zoey Reyes, Jenna Sativa, Shyla Jennings, Gina Valentina, Honey Gold, Elena Koshka, Milana May and Ana Foxxx. While high production level lesbian content is often clearly created with the male gaze in mind, M.A’s debut film is authentic and genuine to her taste profile and makes use of some of the artist’s music in key scenes as well.
“It’s been an absolute pleasure working with Pornhub on the production of ‘The Gift.’ Similar to how I approach songwriting, I came into this process with a certain vision that I wanted to replicate. I wanted it to be authentic and genuine to who I am. I’m confident that the final product is something everyone can enjoy.” – Young M.A
Young M.A came onto the scene with her 2016 hit single, “Ooouuu,” an infectious anthem that went multi-platinum and was remixed by everyone from Nicki Minaj to French Montana. M.A became a rising star, quickly ascending the industry, garnering accolades from the likes of Beyoncé and receiving millions of views on YouTube. After dropping her EP, “Herstory” last year, Young M.A has gone on to tour the country, amassing devout followers along the way.
In an effort to provide viewers with genre-defying original content, the full-length version of Young M.A’s film, “The Gift” is currently available exclusively on Pornhub as a Free Premium video. A ‘safe to view’ behind the scenes video can be seen of the shoot below.
“While her sexuality is but one dimension of her fascinating character, M.A was able to evoke a certain realness in “The Gift” that is indicative of our progressive generation and will surely resonate with our viewers – regardless of their orientation. We’re excited to continue to create more varied content that will appeal to our fast growing and increasingly diverse audience.” – Corey Price, VP, Pornhub
