Ain’t No Love – Pussy Down [Video]

Toronto, ONOriginally published November 15, 2014 – Canadian renegade pop trio Ain’t No Love just released their brand new track “Pussy Down” – with accompanying video – as the first single from their forthcoming EP, Plummet (via Warner Canada on Nov. 12).

“Pussy Down” will surely pack dance floors while at the same time perfectly showcasing Ain’t No Love’s ability to mix and switch multiple styles to create something that sounds like no one else.

The accompanying music video for “Pussy Down” features many contradictions, something the group were well aware of: as the band states – “The irony of Saidah singing such a hyper-sexualized chorus – directed at a female subject – was not done unintentionally.” The director, Aaron A, paired this image of female power alongside the male group members and sultry female extras in a surreal black void. In Aaron’s words, this was an attempt to place the “juxtaposition on a pedestal.”

Singer Saidah explains how the video’s subverted imagery seeks to change the idea of hip-hop and R&B music videos which have stuck to the same formula for many years: “Pussy Down’ toys with the concept of power through sexuality. In today’s world there’s a sort of expectation for male and female roles and by directing the hook at a woman, we’re trying to flip this idea [of sexual expectations] on its head.” Expect many more surprises from Ain’t No Love in 2015.

“Pussy Down” is available on iTunes and other online retailers.
