Michete - Rihanna Kraft Singles

Michete always manages to turn heads in the best of ways and her new video "Rihanna Kraft Singles" does just that. This is Michete's first single from 'Cool Tricks 3' and as her previous efforts it was written, produced, directed and edited DIY style. Ask John Anderson (Hunnypot) about licensing.

Michete is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to visually stimulating her audiences. If it’s colorful and messy, it’s Michete. But “Rihanna Kraft Singles” isn’t just a technicolor snapshot into the pop star’s life. It’s a hybrid of sexual tension and pop culture influences. Michete exudes this powerful sensual confidence and domination throughout the entire music video. Through coy eyes and bold fashion statements, Michete draws the viewer in with her carefully ~krafted~ set. From dry cuts to parking lot structures, the imagery symbolizes her statuesque attitude within a structure as strong as her: concrete.

“Rihanna Kraft Singles” feels like the best snapchat story you’ve seen - but good luck recreating this. Execution is Michete’s strong suite. But the clever antics don’t stop at her visual escapades, it lies within her lyricism. If you're a fan of pop culture references, clever jabs and self love - this track is for you. I can’t help but notice though this song isn’t just another bop from your favorite underground pop star, it’s more of a sound off. Michete is here and that bitch is ready for you.

People talk about taking the crown, but few do it or even attempt to go full throttle. What makes this bop stronger than any other is that it’s Michete’s come and get it anthem. Take the line “The girls know that I’m a threat” if catchy digs was a sport, Michete is Queen. Love the video for its eccentric colors and its homemade production but don’t forget this is a siren call. Michete is up to bat and she’s telling you all to get ready. Enter if you dare. - Sasha Gonzaléz (Distinction Music)
