It’s late Friday afternoon in November. For a few days hashtag of a marriage proposal has been trending in SA. All of a sudden, that’s hashtag loses the number one ranking to a familiar name, even though it still had thousands of tweets going out. What could be more pressing? The name Faith Nketsi tops the trending list. What has she done now?
Faith (Queen Twerk) is a South African socialite/influencer. The trend has nothing to do with her newly launched reality show. She dropped an EP. Something many would not have expected from her. Still, many are curious to hear. Jointz was too.
Disrespectful is seven tracks long, with a total playtime of twenty minutes. The assumption before listening is that Queen Twerk will aim for club play. The first joint goes to prove this expectation to be valid. The beat is a popping trap sound with a flute dominating the melodies. The raps are alright but the delivery is unpolished. Something that won’t matter much in a club setting.
She does some singing on Mood, a slow jam about being in the mood to get it on and entertain a romantic interest. The shaky singing is made up for on the remix at track number six. It gets clear a few track in that this is sultry twerk music with a lot of sexual teasing in the lyrics. The second verse on Big Sis spots some good wordplay with a clean execution to match.
Men Are Trash has the potential to be a good radio single from the sound of it. It just falls a bit short on the energy it gives off. Also, the content of the song doesn’t come close to expectations set by the title. Look At It and Pop That on the other hand are strong
So if you're looking for music to spark up a sensual experience, this EP might be for you. She gets some good lines in here and there but the raps aren't that impressive. She has potential that could turn into something good if worked on a bit more. Then again, it can be picked up from the energy of this EP that it was made in a light and playful spirit.
