If "WAP" by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion has you craving more X-rated female rap, South Africa's Moonchild Sanelly is here to fill that void with "Where De Dee Kat." Far more left of center than your average chart-topping hip-hop song, "Where De Dee Kat" fuses trap, baile funk, gqom, and soul into pure filthy, frenetic fun, and the song's video premieres today on The FADER. But there's a deeper message behind the track, Moonchild told The FADER: “Unless we talk about female desire, rape culture exists.”
The music video's production was quite turbulent, as director Jesse Roth explained in an email. "Of all the stupid shit I’ve been asked to do, tying a bondage-clad musician to the back of a van & driving around with the doors open setting off smoke bombs in her face is right up there. Nearly spent the night in jail. Banging tune though.”
"Where De Dee Kat" appears on Moonchild Sanelly's upcoming EP Nudes, out September 11 via Transgressive Records. Moonchild recently featured on Beyoncé's Black Is King visual album on the song "My Power."
