Hot Mess of the Week: Lady Sovereign

Posted on

Of all the female rappers who are currently missing in action–including Eve, Lauryn Hill, Jean Grae, and Kid Sister–the last one I ever wanted to hear new music from is Lady Sovereign. Her lackluster debut CD, 2006’s Public Warning, proved that even hip-hop champs like Jay-Z, who signed the cheeky British MC to Def Jam in 2005, pick losers sometimes. But despite failing to breakthrough in America, the Sporty Spice look-alike is back with a wack new Autotune-enhanced club single called “I Got You Dancing” from her upcoming follow-up disc, Jigsaw, due out next year. On Monday, she posted the video for the song on her MySpace page. There are zombies with green faces dressed as Native American stereotypes, plus shirtless dancers prancing around in football shoulder injury pads while wielding spiked baseball bats. It’s like watching a bad acid trip on steroids. Watch the madness for yourself, but don’t say I didn’t warn you.
