We're thrilled to welcome Blood Sweat and Heels to Bravo, and even more excited to get to know Melyssa Ford—one of New York's fiercest real estate forces. The agent makes bank selling ritzy properties, but her past life is just as glam in a totally different way: she used to be the go-to music video dancer before she left music video modeling to pursue hosting and acting for the next ten years, ultimately deciding, recently, to exit stage left and pursue a career in real estate.
We've put together a quick playlist of some of Melyssa's most epic music video performances, which include some of the most iconic party and dance floor anthems of the past fifteen years. Usher? Alicia Keys? Jay-Z? She's starred in some of their best vids, and hopefully we'll catch a glimpse of her sweet moves at some point this season.
Revisit Melyssa's best video moments and tell us: which one is your favorite?
Usher, feat. Lil Jon and Ludacris, "Yeah"
Perhaps the biggest hit of Usher's career and the one song that can get everyone on the dance floor, "Yeah" is one body-moving track—and that's exactly what brought Melyssa front and center as one of the video's prominent dancers.
Sisqo feat. Foxy Brown, "Thong Song [Remix]"
Melyssa's incredible curves are almost as famous as her amazing moves, and she put both to work in this re-work of Sisqo's epic hit.
Alicia Keys, "You Don't Know My Name"
Her cameo in Alicia Keys' daydreamy song is brief in the beginning, but we'd recognize those cheekbones and that smile anywhere—even if Melyssa's rocking a diner waitress uniform, she's doing it with swagger!
Jay-Z feat. UGK, "Big Pimpin'"
Back before he was the Mr. Beyoné Knowles, Jay-Z took to massive yachts full of beautiful women to prove his baller status, and Melyssa Ford was one of the bootylicious babes aboard the S.S. HOVA for the "Big Pimpin'" video.
Mystikal, "Shake It Fast"
Watching Pharrell rock a cowboy hat is pretty rad, but watching Melyssa show us what she's working with alongside Mystikal? That's better.
