Crisp N' Fresh: Izzi Dunn Shows Us It's Not All About 'Tits & Ass'

Friday, November 13, 2009


When I first heard of British musician Izzi Dunn having a song called, "Tits and Ass" a stream of giggles came out.

Yes, I'm 12.

I then suppressed my giggles with coughs and decided to get grown and listen to what this song is really about...as it's not some homage to the Lil Waynes of this world. In fact this funky punch of a song is an stark open letter to those who think that women are just on this Earth too shake their moneyrumps. Izzi's biting lyrical wit and her gritty soulful growl is indeed a refreshing wake-up slap, musically and socially. Recently, the video for the track dropped, and I must say it expertly displays the subject of sexism and the hypocritical slant the music industry has about women by showing both sides of the story. As Izzi says, "there is more to me than tits and ass" I couldn't help but pump my fist and cheerily go, "Right, on sista!"

Dunn's sophomore album, Cries and Smiles, drops digitally on November 16th, and should be a treat for those who love the talent that is coming out of the UK Soul scene.

  1. Yes, I giggled too when I got the press release. It's completely not what I was expecting based on what I read. Pleasantly surprised.
