“What’s good? Still represent the west side!” These few lines kept looping in my head for a few days since my first listen. This phenomenon is known as an “earworm” or “musical imagery repetition,” which originates from German word Ohrwurn – “a type of song that typically has a high, upbeat melody and repetitive lyrics that verge between catchy and annoying.”
This “West Side” song is definitely on the catchy side. Our Hiphop homie Reverie shot her video in Europe with fellow latina emcee, Gavlyn, while she was touring in Germany, Switzerland, France, and Portugal all along the way. The lyric lines “just hopped off the plane, now I’m on the stage” totally resembles her touring in past few years.
Despite her crazy touring schedule, this underground turned rapper-star has been pushing out one music video after another every week this month! Reverie, which stands for “a state of being pleasantly lost in one's thoughts; a daydream,” has really made her dream a reality. She raps to the world, she directs her music videos, she brings her visuals to life. What else can she do?
Just yesterday, Rev performed at the Regent Theater with Gangrene, Noa James, Hideandseekzoo, Slum The Resident, F.A.C.E. and more. What’s next? She has her schedule lined up tight, not to mention hitting up our Hunnypot Party #361 on March 6th 2017! Join us.
