Brooke Candy is N-A-S-T-Y, the California born and bred rapper/singer released her N-A-S-T-Y music video on www.hungertv.com exclusively on June 2nd. The 26 year-old singer in her usual unabashed sultry manner is determined to confront the audience with her visuals on the topic of fears. Is the world ready for more Candy? The songstress proclaimed in her exclusive interview with HungerTV:
“I BELIEVE IN FLIPPING ALL KINDS OF TERMINOLOGY ON ITS HEAD SO CALL ME A SLUT, I LOVE IT.”
Brooke Candy might not have caused the kind of sensation that she hoped to achieve with her two previous singles, Opulence and Happy Days, you cannot ignore this petite force. She was donned in a siren red custom outfit by Geoffrey Marc in her video directed by Rankin. The alchemy of these three creatives: the songwriter, the costume designer and the director resulted in making us wonder about who is that N-A-S-T-Y thing which is creeping in and out between the lyrics. Is the snake an euphemism for our natural attraction for vice? What are our inner fears that are constantly paralyzing us like the sting of a scorpion? Shot by Rankin at Hunger Studio, a scorpion crawls over Candy’s face and the imagery brings you the idea that temptation is dangerous but pleasurable. We often disregard warnings in seeking nirvana.
However, what is more N-A-S-T-Y? Our true freakish self or the outside thing that is lurking around to expose our inner yearning to be destroyed?
The exclusive interview on HungerTV also reconfirms Candy’s constant quest on the definition of gender normalcy. I need to thank artists like her and Rankin for examining our human nature or inhuman nature with the work they do. Candy is fascinated with duality in everything.
“I encourage everyone to look outside themselves and get uncomfortable because that discomfort is where we grow.”
The cinematic release of N-A-S-T-Y directed by renowned photographer and filmmaker Rankin is a mesmerizing and tongue-in-cheek experience, described by Brooke Candy as “one part Charlie Chaplin…one part John Waters…one part Pam and Tommy’s sex tape…”
Brooke Candy has been featured on Grimes and Charlie XCX tracks, she works in the studio with everyone from SIA to Diplo. She has garnered over 8 million combined YouTube views after dropping a series of ground-breaking music videos, the latest being this genre-defying collaboration with Rankin.
