This week’s From The Vault serves up “filthy” in earnest. And we’re unapologetic too. For, there’s something to be said when such a risque cut wraps it’s legs around Pop culture, gripping it until the masses can’t but sing along. No, we’re not talking about Rihanna and Chris Brown‘s ill-prepared ‘Birthday Cake’.
We’re talking Khia‘s ‘My Neck, My Back (Lick It)’.
Released over 10 years ago from the femcee’s ‘Thug Misses’ debut, ‘Neck’ has become somewhat of an underground classic and easily rapper’s most renown effort to date. Reaching the 4th position of the UK Official Singles Chart and peaking inside the Top 50 of Billboard’s Hot 100, the “pleasure-manual” is considered by many a guilty pleasure. For as “taboo” as it may be for some, it’s near-impossible to deny the track’s heavy dose of “infectious”.
Diane Martel was tapped to direct the song’s pool-party video. And, though another promo visual (featuring models in bikini’s lipsynching to the track) was later commisioned (the ultimate shade, right?), we’d much rather see the self-proclaimed Queen of the South show folk how to “do it, do it” herself.
Enjoy… just make sure mom is not around when you hit ‘PLAY’!
