if there was a way for me to look at her while I'm listening to her album

I would definitely buy

I think she's sexy as fuck

and her performances are visually interesting

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AvLfJPH-gCQ

but the music, just on it's own...ehh

doesn't really move me.

From my high school preference for dominican baby hair and bangled eaarings, to my art school chick phase, to when I thought foreign accents were hot because they were supposed to be 'worldly' when i started dating hard in NYC.

All she needs to do is throw up a few fashion pics of her in a pencil skirt and glasses and id be like this:

a lot of the songs lack thump and meander into nothing, and they all sit at one mood/tempo

she needed some dance or up beat tracks here and there

Kicks, 2 Weeks, and Give Up are dope as shit tho

and the thing is, the record has some strong producers. But me think her heavy 'co-producer' credits means she stripped alot of the individuality of the music out.

But it's why imho EP2 knocked when it was just her over Arca's beats, as opposed to a full 'cohesive' album project.

aside from that she's pretty sexy but she throws a lot of dirt on it and it negates her sexyness to me.

I think naturally she is an insanely dope visual artist.. and her music plays background to those stronger ideas..

I'd eventually like her to make maybe more concise songs but she is obviously on the wave she wants to be on..

Like Jhene Aiko, or however you spell her name. Nice to look at, but probably makes trash music that no one would listen to without seeing what she looks like first.

At least that's my experience with this archetype.


Edit: Just Youtubed. Terrible music. Nice visuals tho.

...sexual thing that she's got going on? i feel like that's the thing that does the most to make her unqiue. all this hyper-sexual imagery and lyrics delivered in this very meek and passive manner. i get a strong "any time, any place"-as-filtered-through-pornhub vibe from all of her work
