SONG PICK: Jeannel – ICMIB
Jeannel is a singer, songwriter and producer based in Berlin and London, who has her very own perspective on music and life. “ICMB” is a beautiful example for that: the song takes cues from classic R&B, but its multilayered production expands in multiple directions and you may want to listen several times to realize what you are witnessing here.
Lyrically, in “ICMB” Jeannel turns the power relations around and goes into the offense against the male gaze: “I can make it better (I can give you shelter) / I can hold you tight (When the rain is pouring down) / But you don’t realise.”
