On set during the creation of Your Body, the latest single from A.J. Ventura's upcoming album, set to release in July.

ST. CROIX — Recording Artist A.J. Ventura released a music video on Wednesday for a single from his upcoming album. The single, named Your Body, showcased the diverse artist's broad abilities in music, whose storied history in the industry dates back to his early days (age 14) as part of VIO International, and later becoming a mainstay behind the legendary Xtaushun Band before his solo efforts.

But Wednesday's release was about more than just Mr. Ventura's amazing work; it also brought to the fore the high level of talent available right here in the USVI, especially in regards to visual arts and clothing design — all of which were on display in the music video. 

Some of the main players include Eliana B. Artistry for the video's body painting work, Designs by Regal for attire, and Sound Stage VI for photography, video and other visual tricks. Sound Stage VI, led by millennials George Armstrong Jr., Kiwaun Cumberbatch, was responsible for piecing together all the moving parts for a final work that encapsulates excellence.
