Andy S has returned with the first visual from her Le Rap N'a Pas De Sex (Rap is Genderless) EP, "Docteur Du Micro." While the song samples Almighty's "Le Dieu Du Swing," she comments on how many rappers seek short term success through parody rap and that she stands above the comments from the naysayers. She also speaks her visions of grandeur of conquering Africa and Europe into existence in the second verse.
In an email, she explained how the video came about serendipitously: "I went to Accra to shoot another video, and Yaw Phanta (the director) told me to play him some stuff and he decided he wanted to shoot another video for me. We saw a pharmacy and since the song is 'Docteur de Flow' and in one of the lines I said, 'they get sick every time they listen to me,' I thought it would be tongue in cheek to shoot in front of the pharmacy."
