Hello Pop-Stylers! It’s been a couple weeks but I’m back with another #MusicCrushMonday!!!
This past week I was immersed in the land of dance at the Dance Masters of America TTS conference in Buffalo, NY. I took classes, learned new methods of teaching, refreshed my terminology and knowledge of dance history, and even performed in the Hip Hop intensive with the one and only Rich Ashworth. (Look him up cause this guy is the hip hop truth). Therefore, my #MusicCrushMonday goes to the artist of the song that the Hip Hop intensive group used. I introduce to you LEIKELI47!
Leikeli47 is an obscure hip hop underground rapper, featured in a ski mask in all her images, leading to her anonymity. Her sound is what I call electro-punk rap……think Azealia Banks flow mixed with MIA beats. In her song “Two Times a Charm” audio (the song I performed to) the beat is not only hypnotizing but also its grimmy and raw with a sassy peppy feel of walking down a New York City fashion week runway- leading to a unique sound that is bound to become the new #earworm. (Click below to see part of the hard getting choreography we did…. Yours truly is second from right in front row).
Leikeli47 self titled album is available on ITunes and Spotify. I suggest you run, not walk to get this album so you too can #RiptheSummerUp (click here to listen to this hit).
Til next time… Keep it #PopStyle
