Moozlie-I’m A Star

Moozlie released this song on November 18, 2020. I think this song is mad dope. It’s very catchy and the beat caught my attention because it’s different than the type of beats I hear from female artists in the United States. I like how the song switch languages and isn’t completely in english. The thing I like the most is her confidence and the meaning of the song. In her chorus she says, “B***h I’m a star, Yeah you see me coming, See me shining from far”. Her confidence keeps me engaged because I love seeing female artists have confidence and talk about things other than their body and sex. Another verse that caught my attention was when she said, “I got it, the spirit, Try to fight it but you feel it”. She talked about how people tried to kill her happiness and bring her to their level but she rose above and continued to prevail. I love the music video because it just seems so effortless and her swag is mad dope. Overall, dope artist.
