Rye Rye’s just released her latest single, “Boom Boom”, and it’s accompanying video from her debut album, Go! Pop! Bang!, dropping May 15th, and it. is. sick.
The song is one big throwback: it samples the Venga Boys song that you know you had in your AIM profile or danced to at sleepovers in middle school, and the video pays homage to every ’90s video game ever, including a Mortal Kombat-style dance-off. It’s ridiculous, but in the best way.
Plus, Rye Rye has great style. Living in the Bronx these past 4 years gave me a serious appreciation for Fly Girl/B-Boy style, which the young rapper has to the nth degree: candy-colored high tops, neon crop tops and short shorts, and tons of gold bling. It’s nice to see someone with style who doesn’t take it too over-the-top (relatively).
