"Fab the Duo Enlist Mariahlynn to Help You Embrace the Single Life in 'No Prince Charming' Video: Watch"

While Fab the Duo members Greg Driscoll and Brendan Eprile may be boyfriends in real life, the two know what it means to be single -- and they want to help their fans learn to love it.

In their new video for "No Prince Charming" (premiering below), Fab the Duo team up with Love & Hip Hop: New York star Mariahlynn to teach a lesson in self-love. The clip opens with a woman walking in on her cheating boyfriend, and proceeding to breakdown in the next room. But the Duo and Mariahlynn show up just in time to give her the makeover she needs to get back out on the town and live her best life. "I don't need no Prince Charming to save me, save me/ I don't need a dragon just to slay," they sing.

The vibe of the track is new for Fab the Duo, whose previous two singles have seen the pair doling out soulful, R&B style harmonies. "No Prince Charming," on the other hand, falls squarely into the pop category, with the pair switching between a catchy chorus and some playful rap verses.

"The last two singles were primarily written by Brendan, while this one was written by Greg," they tell Billboard in an exclusive statement. "We wanted to show the fun and sassy side of us that people have been waiting for. While this song is a different genre than the others, the heart and message of Fab remains."

As for their collaboration with Mariahlynn, Driscoll and Eprile recall offering her the guest spot via email, expecting her to never respond. "Within an hour or so we got an email back saying she wants to jump on the track," they say. "It was definitely one of the coolest things to ever happen to us. To have someone of her caliber believe in us and our music is something we don’t take for granted." - Billboard


"HERE ARE THE LGBTQIA+ BANDS WHO SHOULD ALREADY BE ON YOUR PLAYLIST These LGBTQIA+ bands are actively challenging the preexisting boys’ club of the alternative music scene and redefining what it means to be a part of it."

Fab The Duo are composed of a gay couple, Greg Driscoll and Brendan Eprile, who challenge the notion of who pop, blues and rock belong to. By bringing together elements that span an array of genres, the two create an unapologetically queer celebration of LGBTQIA+ love and light. With a powerful message and extraordinary talent, Fab The Duo are a group who shouldn’t be overlooked. The presence of the black, queer and interracial couple is changing the way musicians can utilize their platform as activism. - AltPress


"Gay Couple Fab the Duo Uplift Spurned Woman in 'No Prince Charming'"

The glam pop-rock group Fab the Duo made a splash with the 2019 song “I Want a Man.” Now real-life boyfriends Greg Driscoll and Brendan Eprile are back with the help of rapper Mariahlynn with a video for “No Prince Charming,” an anthem about female empowerment and autonomy.

In the video, a young woman catches her man cheating with another woman. But with the help of her gay guy glam squad and her crew of female friends, she moves on to bigger and better things.

“I don’t need no Prince Charming to save me / I don’t need no dragon just to slay,” because “all I need is me,” the song goes.

“'No Prince Charming' is about realizing your own worth and knowing you don’t need anyone but yourself to make you happy. Even though we’re a couple, we’re also very strong individuals and we wouldn’t be able to be together if we weren’t confident in who we are,” Fab the Duo said in a release.

Driscoll and Eprile, who met on Tinder and who call themselves the “modern-day Sonny and Cher (but we’re both Cher),” seek to change attitudes about LGBTQ love and relationships through their music.

“We’re two men in a healthy relationship not afraid to sing about being gay. Our main goal is to be the heroes we never had growing up. There’s no shame in being authentic and loving who you want. In short, our love is resistance,” they said. - Advocate


"Pop Duo Pays Tribute To Stonewall’s World-Changing Legacy In New Video Fab the Duo say “Our Love Is Resistance” is dedicated “to anyone who faces discrimination for who they love.”"

Greg Driscoll and Brendan Eprile didn’t expect to be releasing new music amid a prolonged period of civil unrest. Still, they believe current events around the world have made their artistic mission more vital.

Based in New York, the real-life couple perform together as Fab the Duo. They’re set to drop their five-song debut EP, “Our Love Is Resistance,” Friday.

HuffPost got a sneak peek at the music video for the EP’s bluesy, gospel-inspired title track, viewable above. In it, Driscoll and Eprile sing to a group of parishioners inside a West Village church. After leaving the church, the men head to the Stonewall Inn, where a peaceful protest is taking place. The clip concludes with the couple sharing a tender embrace as demonstrators warmly look on.

Describing their union as “a whole movement” rather than a straightforward musical act, Fab the Duo told HuffPost they are hopeful their new song and video will be seen as “an important addition to the Black Lives Matter movement and LGBTQ Pride Month.”

“We believe that this song’s message is more important now than ever,” the pair said in an email. “Everything that is going on in the world only strengthens our message and proves that love will always win over hate.”

Driscoll, 24, and Eprile, 25, met on Tinder. As a mixed-race couple, they say they’ve come to view their own relationship as “an act of resistance.”

Regarding “Our Love Is Resistance,” they looked to the 1969 Stonewall uprising, historically seen as the start of the modern LGBTQ rights movement, for inspiration.

“We wanted to write an anthem for anyone who faces discrimination for who they love — interracial relationships, trans relationships and gay relationships,” they said.

Fab the Duo released their first single, “I Want a Man,” last year. They followed that up in February with “No Prince Charming” featuring rapper Mariahlynn of “Love & Hip Hop: New York.” That song’s music video debuted via Billboard and was also featured by The Advocate.

Drawing from the worlds of pop, rock and musical theater, Fab the Duo hope their new EP will encourage listeners to practice self-love.

“We want queer people and everyone who is different from the status quo to feel like they can be their true selves and still find love and success and live fulfilling lives,” they said. - HuffPost

Bio

Fab The Duo, a recently LA-based alternative-pop duo, aims to smash societal norms through music and love. Previously hailing from New York, the glamorous boyfriend pair, Greg Driscoll and Brendan Eprile, had quickly become rising stars in New York City’s nightlife and music scene, performing to big, energetic crowds at iconic venues like The Cutting Room, The Stonewall Inn, and The Bitter End. Their music has been featured on notable press like BILLBOARD, ADVOCATE, HUFFPOST, and PRIDE, with ALTPRESS calling them a “group that should not be overlooked.” They were recently recognized by the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, winning the Song Of The Week Award.

Fab The Duo is more than just music; they are a movement. They hope to change the way that people see queer, interracial love in the music scene and beyond. As the duo makes history being the first gay couple to break out in the music industry, they want their fans (or Fabbits) to follow this simple advice: be you, be proud, and most importantly, be loud.
