Michete - Back of the Truck

Michete is back just in time to haunt your industrial back alley daydreams this Halloween. "Back of the Truck '' cautions viewers from the onset due to its photosensitive content, but viewer discretion should be advised that this song and video are both NSFW. Nonetheless, this late night rager is tickled with neon nostalgia for when you're feeling your grimey and violent sexuality in a post rave world.
 
In a way, "Back of the Truck" is like a coming-out party for one. Throughout the broken record of "acting like a slut, looking like a bitch" she stays perfectly posed while the camera's assumedly male gaze, circles and preys upon the one-dimensional portrayal of herself. The neon pink and green lights break-dance their way against the wall and the epilepsy warning is well earned. It's a mesmerizing and dangerous dimension of color and shadow that breaks Michete free from her stagnant stance to clap-back and explain how she is not like the other girls. Fierce.
 
If you weren't catching Lady Gaga's Mother Monster era vibes, Mimi lays it out for us in a midditft bearing "Born this Way" tour tee as we approach the titular location. Back in the bed of the truck, in her element, Michete emancipates her own version of Mimi. A teasing provocateur of your dirtiest, darkest desires, "Mimi's gonna get it anyway she likes", indeed.

  • Lil Skies - PlayThisAtMyFuneral (Featuring Landon Cube)
    Lil Skies - PlayThisAtMyFuneral (Featuring Landon Cube) Lil Skies and Landon Cube linked up again. This is a duo that never disappoints.
