There was a time when Tinashe’s momentum felt unstoppable. “2 On,” the R&B singer and dancer’s 2014 breakthrough single, was one of those hits so contagious that Drake couldn’t stop himself from dropping an unofficial remix. Aquarius, the major-label debut album that followed, generated rave reviews. Despite the trendy Mustardwave pops and snaps … More »
Pink has never fit in — so much so that not fitting in has become part of her personal brand. Despite spending two decades operating from deep within the mainstream machine, Alicia Beth Moore can believably tout herself as a pop star for the outsiders and the rebels. It’s a weird thing to say about … More »
A big part of Tierra Whack’s rise was the surrealist videos that she went along with her songs, including the short film that accompanied her debut collection, Whack World. Over the last few months, she’s been dropping a track a week, though none of these have had videos. The wealth of Whack material … More »
Another week, another Tierra Whack song. Today, #whackhistorymonth continues with “Unemployed,” the latest in her series of weekly singles following “Only Child,” “CLONES,” “Gloria,” and “Wasteland” and a theatrically absurd performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. Like Whack World, the 15-minute audiovisual project that … More »
Tierra Whack is back with yet another one. After releasing three songs in as many weeks — “Only Child,” “CLONES,” and “Gloria” — she’s now putting out a fourth, continuing the string of singles she’s calling #whackhistorymonth. Are we just gonna keep getting songs every week until the end … More »
Looks like Tierra Whack’s keeping up that song-a-week pace. Over the last couple, she’s released “Only Child” and “CLONES,” and today the Philly artist is putting out another one called “Gloria.” This one comes on the heels of a theatrical, absurd performance Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, and it’s … More »
Last year, Philly rapper and singer Tierra Whack made her name with Whack World, a ridiculously smart piece of work. Whack World was an album, or an EP, or a long-form music video, and it doesn’t really matter which format it fits into. Whack came up with 15 songs in 15 minutes, then … More »
Tierra Whack has just released a track called “Only Child,” her first new song since the release of Whack World, which made it onto our list of favorite releases from last year. “Only Child” may throw an accusation at someone now and then for being “stingeyyYYyyyYYY,” but on it, the Baltimore rapper is anything but. For her, at least. Clocking in at four minutes, the track is — wait, let me think… Oh yeah, exactly four times longer than any single track off of Whack World. So, I guess, if you wanted, you could kind of call this a Tierra Whack EP. Right?
Check out the song below. It is (of course) accompanied by a video animation made by Poormarty (@poormarty) using art by ZACH (@brotherzachary). It also is available via all streaming services. I mean, come on: Tierra Whack is a kind of media mogul, after all.
