We're barely yet in the throes of summer denim—shorts! cut-offs! hurrah!—and tons of companies are already onto fall. Check out American Eagle Outfitters' brand-new fall denim song. Yes, song. AE commissioned singers Rayland Baxter and Tiara Monique to create and sing a duet about American Eagle's fall denim line-up—even incorporating actual style names like, "Artist Jeans," and "jeggings" into the lyrics. Then they filmed a music video (video) in Nashville. (Seriously, though, kudos to anyone who can work the word jeggings into a song.)
