Sean John Underwear taps internationally renowned recording artist, Nelly, as their new spokesmodel. The first campaign features Nelly donning the Fall collection of underwear

The campaign was shot by Randee St. Nicholas and showcases Nelly in both interior and exterior shots at a modern home overlooking Los Angeles.

The Sean John Underwear, Sleepwear and Loungewear collection includes the core silhouettes as well as signature styles in luxury fabrics and is available at Macy's and better department and specialty stores nationwide.

Sean "Diddy" Combs said, "I have known Nelly for many years and I really admire his work. To me, Nelly is the quintessential definition of the Sean John man.

He has the attitude, the swagger, and most of all the physique that our customers can both aspire and relate to. And let's be honest, all of the ladies out there are going to be thanking us for this campaign.

The images are so strong; they speak for themselves. We are truly excited to welcome Nelly into the Sean John family."

Nelly said, "I have been a big fan of Diddy and the Sean John clothing line for years. So, when they asked me to work with them, it was a real honor. I hope my fans will enjoy this campaign as much as I did shooting it."

Styles will include briefs, boxer-briefs, boxers, undershirts, pajamas and robes, among others. Sean John, a privately held company, was created by music icon and producer Sean "Diddy" Combs and made its fashion debut with a men's sportswear collection for the spring 1999 season.
