Erikka J – “Don’t Know” (produced by Chiveer)
Erikka J is making moves lately. AND she’s got killer style. She is a star on the rise with a new video for “Supposed to Love” out and extras on her Facebook profile. Turns out she has a super strength in snow day music-making, too, as she posted nine frames of herself harmonizing with herself over the last few days. It’s really sick.
Check out “Don’t Know,” her latest single. It starts with a piccolo or some sort of far-off woodwind almost beckoning the song to begin. Then the bass enters, followed up by a badass vocal sample. The beat begins and Erikka J’s sinfully strong vocals takes center stage. Her awesome beats are reminiscent of Erykah Badu, and her hypnotic flow of repeating hooks is infectious.
“Supposed to Love” is high class all the way, with Erikka done up in the best with video quality to match. The posh shots show Erikka being led in and out of a limo SUV with fancy bourbons and expensive cigars. In other cut away shots, Erikka is the queen of haute punk 2016 with spiked glasses, her “Natural Born Hustler” destroyed tee, and long pearls down her back; she’s bad in whatever world she’s in. There might be an awesome NSFW booty shot coming out of her cutoffs, so be careful. She sings the hook and lays down the rap; she does it all. Her vocal harmonies with herself during the refrain are seamless. Shit gets heavy at the end as Erikka J’s bringing a glass of wine and a knife to a bubble bath where she lets herself bleed to death. As if you couldn’t tell already how passionate and upset her character is with her emotional hooks, the video spells it out for us. Can’t wait to see what’s next from this awesome femcee (sorry, Ms Proper, I totally stole that from you).
