While some things have moved forward, it is fair to say many borders are slipping back or not moving at all. Being honest and open comes with positive and negative reactions. While there can be plenty of love, social forums, in particular, have fuelled many into baring unfiltered criticism and open hostility. Just ask Greta Thunberg!
It remains the strongest among us who despite this keep pushing things forward in music, art and society.
Breaking through many of her barriers is Danish artist Ara Noir who delivers an empowering body confident and sexually charged single – SLIK.
It was extra crucial for Ara Noir to be 100% transparent in SLIK, as the song is about a love she had for another woman. It has taken a lot of time to build up the courage to release the song having grown up in a conservative Christian movement.
Sung in Danish, the message is clear and captured through the electric air of sexual attraction, warming musicality and stylish video cinematography. Rapper Josie Amadonna adds her softly delivered rhymes and is the video’s featured woman of Ara’s desires, while Fjer co-wrote and created the production.
Infused by a hypnotic R&B beat with the catchy tonality of pop, SLIK sees feminine power in its full pink and glorious beauty. We salute you Ara Noir!
