It’s no secret that Rashida Jones can carry a tune. She shows off her vocals on an annual basis to duet with Jimmy Fallon for his yearly holiday recap of the year’s previous songs. Plus, she’s the daughter of legendary producer Quincy Jones. Music is in her blood.
Back in October, the 39-year-old Parks and Recreation actress lent her vocals to a new song from Boss Selection, a project from producer Sunny Levine. The music video for the laid-back jam, “Flip and Rewind,” has just arrived.
Staying true to the throwback vibe of the track, Jones serves major 90s realness in the clip. She pays homage to TLC, Mary J. Blige, Brandy and more who had major hits during that decade. Check out the fun clip below featuring some memorable fashion trends from that era. Baggy overalls and oversized blazers anyone?
“The inspiration for the video that [writing partner Will McCormack] and I directed was to try to evoke the feeling of the ’90s, but not in a mocking way,” Jones told Rolling Stone. “I think for you and I both, it’s such an important time musically, emotionally, and psychologically. Every part of us formed during the ’90s, and we took all of the quintessential R&B videos from the ’90s and did our best to recreate them.”
