Most RnB tracks leave you under the impression that love is all about sex and breakups. Kay Soul has obliterated that blind-sighted perception with the release of ‘Silly Love’ which features on her 2020 album ‘In My Mind’.
While plenty of people had fun discussing whether WAP was a feminist track, artist’s such as Kay Soul was cooking up the most empowering track that I’ve heard this year. With the single, the trailblazing artist gently points out that objectification isn’t romance while the amorous instrumentals create a hazily seductive atmosphere for her wisdom to fall into.
At the risk of fangirling, I love her. I utterly adore her for reflecting the frustrations I’ve felt about the hyper-sexualisation of culture back at me with more poignancy and feeling than I could ever muster. Every woman needs this track on their playlists.
