Since it’s Friday, I thought I’d share a track that’s been on repeat on my playlist these days. I first heart it in the new Spike Lee’s She’s Gotta Have It Netflix series. Melanin is by the artist Secrett. I tried searching for more information about Secrett but couldn’t really find much so I guess Secrett is still a secret. The video is so retro and Spike Lee-esque with all the living colour. The lyrics are clever and empowering to melanin rich women.
The song also inspired the #MelaninChallenge which has got people sharing their “Ah ha! I got Melanin” renditions on Instagram and Twitter. She’s Gotta Have It, by the way has the best curated soundtrack of any television or film production I have ever watched so you’ve got to give it a listen some time and let me know what you think.
live & love,
