Boomkat Product Review:
Distracting us from another play of Shygirl’s ‘BB’, US rapper and cultural figure Brooke Candy has our attention on a debut album dripping with dutty bars and club-ready production
Revolving guest spots by Charli XCX, Iggy Azalea, Violet Chachki, Erika Jayne, Rico Nasty and Aquaria, the album stages Brooke Candy - a former stripper, daughter of the former CFO for Hustler magazine, and tourmate of Charli XCX - with bolshy, up-to-the-second production by Nuxxe boss Sega Bodega and Boys Noize, among others. Depending your level of prudence, this album will either push all your buttons or send you running.
We’re naturally snagged on her cracking use of Lords Of Acid’s new beat classique ‘I Sit on Acid’ in her ‘FMU’ banger, and also the absolute smut of ‘XXXTC’ with Charli XCX; the SOPHIE-meets-Lil Kim flex of ‘R.I.P.’; and the proper strip club banger ‘Cum’ (although we just got a flash of Alan Partridge dancing to this in his peephole sweater, and can’t scrub the image now).
