The primary time I heard Power I believed I used to be nonetheless listening to Cuff It, that’s how clean it was. This album calls for to be streamed in its entirety due to how interconnected and steady it sounds.

The Themes

The message of Cozy is so empowering, particularly if you keep in mind this album is devoted to her Uncle Johnny. The lyrics of this tune even describe the Progress Satisfaction flag whereas proclaiming messages of self-love. Whereas this venture started in the course of the early days of the pandemic, it feels much more well timed on this side given conversations concerning the standing of protections and rights for the LGBTQIA neighborhood within the US.

The storytelling of Plastic Off the Couch is so refreshing. I personally really feel like we’ve been missing love songs in mainstream music (I don’t wish to have to hunt it out) and this one is immaculate.

Church Woman is one other tune that had a robust impact on me. As a woman raised by a Deacon, this tune that turns Black Christian normativity and respectability on its head is as releasing as it’s, is danceable, and enjoyable.

Cuff It

Alien Famous person

One other tune that may pull you to the dance flooring and have you ever shouting “UNIQUE” on the most random factors within the day. You’ll additionally most likely wish to do your greatest strut to this one.

America Has a Downside

Clearly, I’m obsessive about the dance tracks on Renaissance, this one took me by probably the most shock. You’ll simply should expertise it for your self to know.


This one is such a love letter to queer tradition and all I see is Leoimy working this one out at a ball, or within the music video Beyonce please I’m begging you. The top of this tune (and the top of Heated) is on a near-constant loop behind my head.

General Score: 9.5/10
