Destra taps The Oval actor for new video

In her first official video release for 2022, Destra Garcia is cooking up something sexy and delicious for The Oval star Travis Cure.

Cure stars in the video for Destra's song "Special Delight" on the Boat Cruise Riddim.

In the video, shot in Atlanta and directed by Josiah Persad, Destra serves up some special delights with a secret ingredient, bacchanal, in the form of a miniature Destra.

“I got the idea of Destra making something sweet and I got the idea to create a miniature Destra as a secret ingredient. I brought in some green screen and created something out of the ordinary,” said Persad who worked with the Queen of Bacchanal for the first time on this project.

Persad, who I studying film at the Savannah College of Arts and Design Film School in Atlanta, brought in Cure, who has worked with before.

Cure, a model and actor, currently stars as Bobby on the political drama series The Oval on BET. The show is written and directed by Tyler Perry.

"Special Ingredient" was written by Mical Teja.

Destra told Loop the song was written over a year ago and she found the lyrics were so raunchy she was hesitant to sing it.

She said Teja convinced her to embrace the double entendre of the song and he found what he considered the perfect riddim for it.

“I said the only way I would do this song is if I did a video that softened the lyrics and was totally left field from what we are doing and I know a lot of young teenagers are online and I really wanted to soften the visuals for the song so we had to get creative,” she explained.

The Boat Cruise riddim also includes songs from Teja, Patrice Roberts and Lexxi.
