London rapper Ashnikko broke out on TikTok with "Stupid," a rap song with a metal heart and big, muscular bars about rejecting fuckboys. She delivered on the promise of that song with "Cry," a Grimes-featuring single that displayed convincingly fraught vocals in the vein of Linkin Park. "Daisy," Ashnikko's latest single, combines both of those worlds with a punchy, EDM chorus. Check it out above.
Ashnikko described the theme and protagonist of the song in a press statement:
“This song is for the brats (brattiness being a recurring theme in my music). It’s about this absolute boss dominatrix vigilante character of mine. She rids the world of rapists and throat punches the patriarchy, leaving daisies behind as a calling card of sorts. She's sexy as fuck, wears only platforms, latex, and blue diamonds.”
