Rising model Jelle Haen is here to make a first impression for the ages with his fresh new project Beau Battant. Having graced the runways of Proenza Schouler, Coach, and more, the Holland native is now bursting into the world of music with his infectious new single "I Want You". This bold debut is a complex pop force, an exploration of vanity, seduction, and the heightened reality of expressing one's need to be loved. 

Produced by Richard Cameron and Joost van Bellen in collaboration with YouGuys Music in Berlin, the fashion muse-turned-musician establishes his rockstar roots in his video for "I Want You", a dance-worthy solo disco that ultimately ends in both parties wanting more. Of what? It all. This visual, featuring a sequin-dripping catsuit by Clifford Portier accompanied by a mask crafted by Viktor and Rolf, a sharp suit by 44studio, a corset by KTZ, and more, will, simply put, have you gagging. With a 4-track EP titled THIS IS BEAU BATTANT due this early fall, check out the sleek premiere of "I Want You" below and stay tuned for more Beau Battant.
