Michete - Yum Yum Big Slurp

I'll never forget Wynonna Ryder's character in the film Reality Bites referring to 7-11's Big Gulp as the defining invention of her generation, proceeding to explain its numerous health benefits. And now there is Michete, using the Big Gulp as a sexual metaphor. Michete is a DIY artist to the extreme with a special knack for crafting clever and catchy song titles. These are ear worms for sure and I will be the first to admit that I have become an eager fan to see what Michete is going to be releasing next. Here we have it with Yum Yum Big Slurp.
 
I can honestly say that with each new music video Michete produces you can see creative growth. Subject matter wise this song is definitely about sexual empowerment; completely unapologetic. Its interesting that the style of the music video is like a clip show then we cut into a beautiful stark black and white reserved look where Michete matter-of-factly states what she will do and enjoy sexually whether you like it or not. Putting this section outside of the grittier realism of the rest of the video was a powerful creative choice as it really does direct the attention of creator to audience. The video ends simply with Michete saying, "Everybody knows that sluts are the coolest." Check out the video and see what that means.

    Zeus Rebel Waters - "LUV" I have a soft spot in my heart for women on the pole, but an even softer spot for Zeus Rebel Waters. Tuning his usual rasp toward the traditional trap beat, the one word that can describe his 2020 single “Luv” love is, “classic”. The simplicity of the song’s intention… Read more

  • Amyl and The Sniffers - Guided By Angels
    Amyl and The Sniffers - Guided By Angels I was sent this video by Amyl and the Sniffers the other day and immediately gave it a watch. At first listen, I was like, "Where have I heard this style of music before?" It reminded me a lot of a local band I listen to here in Dallas called… Read more

  • SHY & D.R.S feat. JOSH SETTERFIELD - "FLEX"
    SHY & D.R.S feat. JOSH SETTERFIELD - "FLEX" Country has long been a polarizing, impenetrable genre subjugated to the “but..” of the sentence, “I listen to everything,”. In a time where cross-pollination is the only way to stay current, it's also a genre that has maintained its air of sovereignty, managing to slyly subvert the popsphere by pivoting… Read more

    MILA SMITH - LIARS & FAKES It can take some people a lifetime to learn how to spot the fakers, but at only sixteen Mila Smith has turned her bad friend blues into a banger. “Liars & Fakes”, the debut single from the South African songstress, is a soulful bop descended from disco edits of yore,… Read more

  • XHAANIA - PULL UP
    XHAANIA - PULL UP The last party you attended may feel like a midday dream from a far off time when feeling yourself included nails done, hair done and everything did. While this last year has made it feel easier than ever to indulge in that 3:32pm catnap, Xhaania’s new single, “Pull Up” is… Read more
