Brooklyn-based Junglepussy has dropped a visual for “Arugula,” her first new single of the year, a moody psychedelic tune recounting a love gone wrong.
In an exchange with Erykah Badu in Hero, Junglepussy (real name Shayna McHayle) spoke about the trials and travails of her love life. She explained, “If you really take the time to try and look past the name and see me, you will see a very warm, welcoming person.
“But if you just stick on whatever you think it means and whatever you think your friends are gonna think, you’re gonna be hesitant to date Junglepussy. That’s fine because I don’t want somebody who’s gonna act like I’m some Loch Ness Monster or something. I’ve come to terms with the sacrifice, like years ago I would just like cry and pray like, ‘Oh my gosh.”
“Arugula” is directed by Caity Arthur, with make-up by Raisa Flower and hair by Andrita. Enjoy the visual below.
