Known for his revealing, erotic and steamy visuals, former adult film star turned dance/pop artist Colton Ford readies the May release of his upcoming third studio album, The Way I Am, with the premiere of his new black-and-white, Tom of Finland-inspired music video for lead single “Let Me Live Again“, which has so far peaked at number 41 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Club Play chart.

Surrounding himself with real-life boyfriend Angelo Peterson and other drop dead gorgeous models, Ford’s new visual represents a desire to recreate the androerotic work of Tom of Finland from the 80s and 90s, embodying retro masculinity. The NSFW piece showcases the artist’s charming good looks while wearing daring leather creations by Rufskin as excessive amounts of touching and groping occur between those featured.

The single itself is a dance floor-ready piece of pop that is finally getting Ford on the charts where he truly belongs. Even though the artist is trying to make a name for himself in the music industry apart from his time in the adult film business, it is apparent Ford is not shy or ashamed of his past career. Why should he be? He looks amazing!
