Alt-pop artist, Cera Gibson, worked her subversively seductive magic in her latest single, Daddy, which switched the narrative and proved that women *can* be the Daddy too.
Atop the smoothly moody indie pop instrumentals, Gibson lays down her classic pop vocals that wrap around the lyrics, which work to reveal that relinquishing the typically predominantly-masculine ‘daddy’ role doesn’t need to mean handing your masculinity in at the door.
With compassionately soulful lines such as “you’re a big strong man so I’m gonna do what I can”, Gibson turned gender stereotypes on their oppressive and unnecessary head in under four minutes.
The self-proclaimed “gayest straight song” is an invitation to vulnerability that has blown our mind. And we’re not alone in our affinity. Since 2021, Cera Gibson has amassed over 400k followers on TikTok with social commentaries that encompass her “Mommy yet Daddy, sad bitch but bad bitch” persona. How can you NOT love her?!
Daddy was officially released on December 8th. Check it out on Spotify.
