She’s done it again.
As if that BBC Radio One Live Session wasn’t enough, the power house that is Angel Haze has now gone ahead and uploaded her own version of Beyonce’s Drunk In Love to Soundcloud – and it is so much better than Bey’s original collab with husband Jay Z. Not just because there’s no reference to violence, domestic abuse or misogynist assholes oppressing their girlfriends but because Angel Haze is fierce, positive and so freakin’ great it’s unreal.
Hearing this track makes me so happy because it proves once more that
hip hop/rap/popular music doesn’t need to be negative, sexist or full of shocking lyrics written to try and impress by hating on people – it can celebrate good things, it can be thought provoking and it can be interesting and it will still be “cool”.
I CANNOT WAIT to see her at Glastonbury this summer – until then this will be on repeat (thanks for the free download, Haze!).
