It’s a good day for new music and Povi, managed by my people’s over at Souls In Action is doing her part to keep the sounds in heavy rotation. This Cory Kendrix and Scott Pace produced joint, “Usta Was” is the perfect “you don’t fuck with me, I fuck with you less” anthem.
The track is a clever R&B joint that isn’t an ode to missing what used to be, in fact, Povi is riffing on how missing the “fake shit” isn’t even an option, in fact, it never was. She touts not playing with the fakes with the swag of Lil Kim when she was on the escalator in the “Fake Ones,” video and lightly borrows from the Rihanna melody on “Needed Me,” while keeping the perspective purely her own.
In short, it’s dope. Don’t miss Povi hosting “Trap Rave 2” at Bar Standard on 5.21.17. More info here. Listen to “Usta Was” below.
