The New York rapper’s latest release is his first since March’s “It’s Not My Fault,” which came with a video inspired by Jennifer Lopez’s “If You Had My Love.”
The team at Nokia with Baby Tate overheard the pair tackling toxic masculinity as well as adding a dash of humor to the mix.
“First stop him to stop blocking your blessings’ / He’s cute but he’s dumb, so play dumb and teach him a lesson / First cut off access, it can’t be, ’cause you’re a present / Just his dick Cause good, it doesn’t mean good, he will stress you’,” Noka raps on the first verse.
The pair then come together for a playful chorus: “Boys are from Mars, Girls are from Venus / Sync with my heart, link to your gender / Can’t make me cum but you think you’re a genius / Boys are from Mars, Girls are from Venus.“

In 2020, Princess Nokia released two albums together, ‘Everything Is Beautiful’ and ‘Everything Sucks’.
In a three star review, Granthshala Said: “Thematically, ‘everything sucks’ and ‘everything is beautiful’ fail to deliver anything new. They have all the hallmarks of a Princess Nokia record – female empowerment, introspection about her childhood Monologue and Bruja spirituality (a type of witchcraft practiced by some Latin American populations).
“Musically, she has not yet developed a coherent sound” […] ‘Everything Sucks’ often sounds like a musical patchwork quilt; All sounds are stitched together but clearly separated. Perhaps, given the notoriously proteinaceous nature of Princess Nokia, that’s the point of this whole project.”
