Keba – Queen (I Love It)

Keba – Queen (I Love It)

Keba is a Trinidadian-born artist with rhythm in her blood, Keba burst onto the scene after completing a degree in Chemistry, when she decided to pursue her passion for music and songwriting instead. In 2013, she debuted Wildfire, her first studio album, which she composed in collaboration with producer Erik Nunez and released under their independent label, Labrat Music. Since then, the singer/songwriter has earned recognition for her original songs from both the USA Songwriting Competition and the International Songwriting Competition.

Here is Keba had to say about her song Queen. “I remember when I first saw the video for “I Love It” by Lil Pump and Kanye West. I wanted to dance because the beat was so dope but every-time the chorus came in, I was like “Why though?”. I had mixed emotions. The song was so catchy!… If only the lyrics would stop replaying on my subconscious like a not-so-subliminal brainwash tape. I’ve heard the arguments about it being a celebration of female sexuality and I can’t help but ask myself… If a guy were to approach me and say “You’re such a fucking ho. I love it! Let’s have dinner sometime”, would I take this as a compliment?

That’s a tough one, I know. But after about a nanosecond of deliberation, my final answer is no. I personally don’t know any women who would answer yes either, but hey! Different strokes for different folks! That being said…for us folks (women) who hope they never have to respond to that pick up line…for us folks (women) who don’t need another machismo sing-along to feel sexually liberated…and finally for us folks (humans) who want to bop to something that won’t make us go “why though?!”, here’s my remix. It’s called Queen. Happy Halloween Folks! #WakandaForever”
