Song of the Day: ‘Daisy’ by Ashnikko

Dispelling gender norms from the beginning of the song into its finish, North Carolina’s fire-starter Ashnikko sets the tone for womxn everywhere. Saying “make your man call me daddy, he talk[s] too much he’s chatty” to “fuck a princess, I’m a king”, Ashnikko speaks for ambitious individuals and bosses around the world. There’s a freshness that comes with every Ashnikko track that I hear. I hope you’re listening with similar ears. Stream ‘Daisy’ below.
