ALBUM REVIEW: Junglepussy released “Satisfaction Guaranteed” last week and we impressed
Junglepussy flows so hard, can switch it up all kinds of styles, and uses that gift in way that supports black power, girls empowerment and sexuality, self-love and health. Our boy Rishy has been onto her music for a minute so we asked him to put together a thought out review to let y’all know *JUST HOW DOPE* she is to us.
Junglepussy, twitter name Black Power, is hella vocal about black cultural politics and the commodification of blackness (often in white packaging) that has become endemic to the music industry. Some run from a name like Junglepussy, a name Shayna chose to encapsulate her love of animal prints and womanhood. Read together, the name recalls a racial fetish of exotic ethnic female sexual availability resulting in people literally tweeting her thinking she’s a tranny or pornstar, but she claps all the way bank on that stereotype with humor and finesse. She lays it down for dudes that she’s outta their league what it do #boop and if she has sex its for her benefit and she comes first. Junglepussy is here to s(t/l)ay. Sexuality is her reign and her agency is avowed a priori (that ding-a-ling was just a fling, bitch). To me that is mad empowering, to take this loaded ass name that scares off or “turns on” some audiences with it’s charged assumptions about women’s sexuality and then produce music that is full of confidence, ownership of one’s sexuality, and lyrical chops - PROPS.
