Today, critically acclaimed rapper, songwriter and producer, Belly, releases a new track titled P.O.P. (Power of Pussy). The catchy mid-tempo cut, produced by Ben Billions, demonstrates Belly’s proven and flawlessly smooth lyrical ability, coupled with a powerful message focused on female empowerment, the strength of women, and Belly’s conscious stance on equality within humanity. P.O.P. is available today at all digital and streaming partners.
In an interview with Complex, Belly discussed the inspiration behind the new track. Belly said, “I think women in general have always been the focal point of art since the beginning.” “Arguably the most famous work of art is the Mona Lisa. One of the inspirations I have always had for my music is women. Being in love, the heartbreak that comes with it. For me ‘P.O.P.’ is a song about the human experience and what we go through as humans on a day to day.”
Recently, Belly headlined a performance at Canada 150, a festival around Canada Day celebrating the country’s 150 year. After his energetic performance in front of tens of thousands of people, the City of Toronto deemed his performance inappropriate due to profanity. As an artist about self-expression and freedom of speech, Belly quickly rose to defend his performance and denounce the censorship by saying that “they will never censor my art”.
