Born and raised on the Caribbean Island of Curacao, rapper Gianni Mae keeps churning out red-hot hits. On her new double single, embracing “Watermelon Juice” and “Bad Boy Killer” she struts her stylish, confident flow.
Along with their forthcoming music videos, the two tracks provide an appetizer for Gianni’s project, entitled Tales Of A Bad Gyal.
The first episode of the project was “Love Me Long,” a pop-filled dancehall ballad showing the range of Gianni’s voice and songwriting. Next up was the second episode, “Hungry Eyes,” with its contagious Afro-Caribbean-Pop flavors.
With her tasty sound, blending afrobeats, dancehall, hip-hop, R&B, and pop, Gianni’s sonic potions tantalize, mesmerize, and galvanize listeners.
“Watermelon Juice” opens on low-slung chiming tones and then ramps up to a thumping, throbbing hip-hop tune full of potent energy, gleaming synths on the breakdown, and a rumbling, muscular rhythm. Gianni’s femme fatale voice and wickedly sensuous flow advise naysayers not to mess with her, while backing harmonies invest the rhymes with hefty dimension.
“Bad Boy Killer” rolls out on a brawny beat, heaving with strapping momentum. Gianni’s tight flow imbues the rhymes with dazzling machine-gun-like rapidity, as well as more melodic passages. Pealing accents give the harmonics for whom the bell tolls ambiance, forming an upbeat 808 banger that cites the sound of ‘90s Miami.
With her luscious dagger-Esque flow and a knack for visceral rhymes, Gianni Mae parades her gift for oomph-laced hip-hop flavored with her inimitable Afro-Caribbean-Pop tangs.
