SongoftheDay: PUSH IT by SALT ‘N PEPA
I had to. They are just too good. Salt-N-Pepa owned their sexuality. They empowered so many women to show skin without shame, to be sexual, and to speak up about what they want. I had no business listening to them as much as I did as a young child, however in retrospect, I think I got my first sex education from their lyrics. I didn’t know what “it” was, but I knew I had to push “it”.
(This week’s SongoftheDay segments are being guest-curated by Tracy A. of Cross Dog. Not only is Tracy a force to be reckoned with on stage, her political views are equally as fierce, and can be felt in the passion of her lyrics. We are super stoked to have her guest curate some music celebrating the contributions of many of the most iconic women in music. To learn more about Tracy A. and her great band Cross Dog, click here.)
