[SONG OF THE DAY] LP GIOBBI - "Kupsa Kupsa"
If you’re not yet familiar with Los Angeles based producer, DJ, and fashion designer LP GIOBBI, allow me to get you well acquainted. After launching her project earlier in the summer with “Amber Rose”, a “fuck the haters”-esque anthem centered around reclaiming the world’s gaze in the same way that the feminist icon has in the past 10 years, LP GIOBBI (née Leah Chisholm) has continued to release songs over the last few months that promote self-love and champion inclusivity.
Her latest release, “Kupsa Kupsa” is a playful take on the central theme of her music. As LP explains, "The commonality in my tracks is a diversity of perspectives from the top lines,” Collaborating with Parisian rapper and producer H3RY LÜCK, the song features purely French lyrics that were written spur of the moment in the Uber ride to the studio. It’s been way too long since I was in AP French Lit so as with listening to any Yelle album I can only pick up bits and pieces, but I’m told the lyrics capture H3RY's love of cooking and detailing recipe steps for creating a perfect song. Apparently LP is in the same boat as I am regarding the lyrics, as she details,
“French and Malagasy are H3RY's first languages, and it was awesome to see him work so quickly and fiercely to throw down on this track. I was so impressed with his talent and how clever he is. It was further proof to me of how universal music is, because even though I couldn’t understand what he was saying, I could still feel it."
