Christine and the Queens feat. Dâm-Funk: Girlfriend
on 17 May 2018
French pop singer/songwriter/producer Christine and the Queens (aka Héloïse Letissier) has teamed up with Pasadena-based funk master Dâm-Funk (aka Damon Garrett Riddick) for the new track "Girlfriend." Letissier says the song was born out of her fixation with masculinity, saying, "I became obsessed with this idea of the macho man, and still being a woman. What does it mean if I'm this figure, and I'm a woman? Does it make me an aberration? Is it joyful?" The result is a slinky, progressive funk jam—laced with synths and an '80s influence—balanced beautifully with her measured and rich vocals.
