We haven’t stopped playing Cakes Da Killa’s track all week. This week we’ve got another delicious treat from him, a playlist entitled ‘The Wrath of BBW’.
“Reflecting on the world’s latest infatuation with wide hips and pumped up backsides I’ve decided to take the time to honour some of my favourite BBW muses of the past, present and future. These full figured sex sirens have made waves in the music, art and fashion world without fitting into a sample size. Even Drake confesses, “I like my girls BBW, yeah, type to wanna suck you fry and then eat some lunch with you” and if that isn’t the perfect equation for a companion I have no idea what is. Neither talent or beauty have a set weight limit so get into these talented curvy women.” – Cakes Da Killa.
Missy Elliott – “She’s A Bitch”
“If we’re talking about innovation in music Missy Elliott is always the centre of the conversation for me. With her finger waves, jaw dropping visuals and daring individuality Missy is just the one.”
Beth Ditto of The Gossip – “Love Long Distance”
“One of my favourite voices of all time, Beth Ditto is a true BBW icon. From nude spreads in high fashion magazine to amazing live shows around the world Beth stays true to herself and shines from the inside out.”
Kelly Price – “You Should’ve Told Me”
“A vocal powerhouse, Kelly Price has sang circles around your personal fav in her sleep. This track is from her 2000 album Mirror Mirror and is a BBW anthem all about those men who can’t handle the benefits of dating a BBW.”
Contessa Stuto – “Killing in Vain”
“Brooklyn nightlife royalty, performance artist, social media maven and trap metal goddess Contessa Stuto is thee BBW of the NYC underground, no questions asked.”
Big Mama Thorton – “Hound Dog”
“Iconic blues singer and songwriter, Big Mama Thorton was a forced to be reckoned with. Popularising songs like “Hound Dog” and even penning classics like “Ball & Chain” Thorton didn’t also receive her just desserts when other artist stole her swag.”
Mama Cass Elliot of The Mama’s & The Papa’s – “Monday Monday”
“Trailblazer and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame darling Mama Cass Elliot held it down as a member of the Mama’s and the Papa’s. When the band disbanded she went on to have a successful solo career with 5 albums.”
Two Tons of Fun (Sylvester) – “Dance Disco Heat”
“Together Martha Wash and Izora Armstead were the amazing duo Two Tons of Fun. They went on to gain their own hit in the 80’s with “Raining Men” as the Weather Girls. I always loved when they accompanied disco legend Sylvester.”
Lecresia Campbell – “Lonely Old Women”
“If we’re talking about vocal annihilation we are talking about Lecresia Campbell. Her voice gives me chills and this performance from the musical “Mr. Right Now” is effortless and an example of black excellence.”
Carnie Wilson of Wilson Phillips – “Hold On”
“Carnie Wilson plays too much in this video! She’s literally sitting on a beach, in a pant suit, next to 2 skinny women – iconic!”
Phyllis Hyman – “Living All Alone”
“Statuesque, powerful and a wicked beauty, Phyllis Hyman embodied classic elegance. Dominating night clubs, Broadway, and films there wasn’t anything this goddess couldn’t do.”
