“Should I cuff Ms Banks? Give her babies. Mmmm maybe. 9 boys crazy”….
When that line from Tion Wayne’s track “I Dunno” finally makes sense 😅.
I was wondering who Ms Banks was or if Tion Wayne was just using wordplay on that track, but then I was listening to one of Ms Banks’ songs and it finally occurred to me that he was talking about this artist.
One thing you should know about me is that I’m always on the go like Carmen Sandiego, so I listen to so much music on my adventures, but I probably won’t actually see the videos until months (or years) later. So I heard of Ms Banks and listened to a few of her songs before, but it wasn’t until recently I actually SAW who Ms Banks was. I must say, even though I’ve been following the UK music scene for a couple of years now, I still feel like a newbie to the culture, but I’m loving every bit of it. The UK music scene is refreshing to the ear. New styles, new infusions, artists with great lyricism, you basically get the whole package.
What I enjoy about Ms Banks is that she has a sazzy (sassy) and spicy style to her. She’s found her balance within how she carries herself as an artist. It’s like she’s soft and classy (as a woman should be), but definitely has that spicy gangstress side as well. Put it all together, it definitely makes Ms Banks stand out. She’s versatile. Another artist reigning from the UK, (Southeast London to be more precise) Ms Banks comes from a Nigerian/Ghanian background. Me coming from a multicultural background as well, I enjoy seeing how some of these artists can speak multiple dialects or languages within their music. The unique infusion of the African culture with some UK swaav (smoothness) is definitely what makes this track fwecjo (fire).
