wait this is him too?
He was definitely trolling us a bit @ the beginning with what might be seen as a reference to Rosalía. Only to have him flip the script!
Honestly, I'm mad proud of him at every step. Yes, he trades on an ability to play with queer-leaning aesthetics, but he ultimately does them in a respectable and responsible way. It wasn't someone in a costume making fun of drag, of GNC/trans people, he played the role himself, and it wasn't even for comedy. It was to demonstrate comfort with one's self, which I find to be his message for those around him, but for those not afforded his privileges. Yes, I am a super fan, but it's brilliant. I feel so happy getting to watch his career grow only greater with each drop. Him standing with us isn't performative... it's him.
He's all the main women in the vid.
Red outfit, orange with the big breast plate (in the picture), the blond one dancing with himself...
That video was a STATEMENT! Yes Benito!
That video is just... everything. I love him so much.
I love him to death but anyone knows why he didn't credited the singer on this song?
Such a perfect album to blast out me out of quarantine stasis! Now I need to watch some more of these music videos and follow him on insta...
Maybe an oversight of the video tagging? She's credited on the album.
His queer baiting paired with him not crediting the female singer as a guest artist on the song is... not the tea.
It's what I've been questioning since I first played it on Spotify. It feels... weird for her to be the only non credited feature
Yea, I know he’s doing many good things too but when I was reading the Pitchfork profile and that part where he didn’t credit her came up then I was a bit hmm...
Maybe label politics? He should clarify it though.
He's all I've got
He's all I've got in this world
Whatever you want
Whatever you need
He’s all in meeeeee
I'd only understand not crediting Nesi on the video incase dumb people thought she was Benito in drag but she's not credited on Spotify either even though I've read she does - maybe it's region specific?
Rock Your Body teas.
Apparently her part was a sample that was bought 'wholesale' that's why she's not credited but it still sucks.
And someone took this
and made this
Can Safaera get a video too? It's in my top 5 songs released this year!
Really hope they managed to film one before the pandemic struck.
Is she at least a writer?
She is credited as a writer, so I hope some checks are coming her way!
Yes get that coin Genesis!
