Wild, untamed and brimming with raw rap energy. Marina Massanova’s latest smash track takes us on an adrenaline-drenched thrill ride through a furious flurry of genres. From the hard-hitting hip-hop bars to the drastic flip into Hardbass, here’s one song that’s bold, daring and impossible to ignore. The timeless track pushes the boundaries of what’s possible with music. With Massanova’s energy-fuelled and at times wacky style, it’s hard not to like it.
When she pitched the idea to her beatmaker he thought she was crazy to mix together such a whimsical selection of genres. Marina persevered though and they are both elated with the end result. It all started when she conjured up an idea for a song that questions what “normal” really is. She called up her rapper friend Chris Jenkins straight away and they wrote the song together over a video call. The duo really dug deep into the darker side of themselves to pull together something that really bares her soul for all the world to see. The track is a twisted concoction of various styles all jumbled together into one
chaotic storm of sounds. It touched on the concept of normality and how society criticizes authentic concepts like feelings and fears.
The Ukrainian singer-songwriter even directed the video. Dripped in cool, calm charisma, it shows her with her two friends from first grade getting into all kinds of mischief. From visuals of intercourse with an imaginary guy, to the slapping of buttocks, it really grabs your attention and stops you dead in your tracks. Her style is impossible to pigeonhole as it incorporates so many different genres. Though it lands somewhere along the spectrum of punk rap. This ultimately leads to a sound that’s simply oozing with originality and could not be imitated by anyone else.
