Just as I thought I was going to spend the rest of the month drowning in mediocre World Cup songs, the divine Renaida comes along and delivers unto us a banger that we can put in our earholes instead of any football content. (That’s not to yuk on anyone’s sports yums, but rather to praise the wisdom of alternative content programming.)
You may remember Renaida as the long-nailed, long-lashed, long-extensioned lass who was done dirty by Melodifestivalen earlier this year when they messed up her sound mix. Renaida is a singing and dancing powerhouse – she has the voice to keep it going as she struts about the stage – and she has come forth with a fantastic song that might very well become my Eurovision Song of the Summer:
And now – to turn to the ‘your fave is problematic’ bit – yes, the song does have a moment where she talks about slipping something in her lover’s drink, but she’s endorsing that as a loco notion, right? Like something she’d never do because it was so out there, right?
PLEASE LET’S GO WITH THAT INTERPRETATION I NEED A CLEAN UNSULLIED BANGER WITHOUT SOCCER TESTOSTERONE ALL OVER IT, OKAY?
