Latto Shakes Things Up With Defiant Song “Pxssy” Amidst Roe Vs Wade
On Latto’s latest single, “Pu**y,” the 23-year-old vents her frustrations with misogyny, gender roles, and reproductive rights. The track samples Betty Wright’s 1968 single “Girls Can’t Do What The Guys Do,” and features imagery from women’s rights protests as her voice overlay declares a line from the song, “My ovaries ain’t for you to bully.”
Sara Lacombe co-directed the music video with Latto and had this to say, “It was really important for Latto and I to collaborate on this video, especially with women’s rights being such a hot topic at the moment,” shared Lacombe in a press statement. “This video is symbolic that we can be both hard (her lyrics) and soft (the world we placed her in) at the same time. The world is always going to tell us who to be. That’s probably never going to stop. That’s why it’s more important than ever for women to stand in their truths and know who they are.”
Latto responded to critics who took aim at her intentions on twitter a few days ago. Latto also made sure to let everyone know she was donating the proceeds.
