Black Peppa wants that invoice paid! on her huge new dance anthem Money. Produced by the legendary Parx, the James Indigo-assisted track is a defiant house and techno-infused banger about the importance of artists – particularly queer artists – being compensated for their work. “Where is my coin?
Where is my money? Where is my bag of sterling, hunty?” Peppa repeats in the infectious chorus. Peppa, who rose to superstardom last year as a contestant on the fourth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, where she placed joint third/fourth, tells GAY TIMES that Money is the “perfect follow-up” to her debut single Why Is She Calling. “I really wanted my second track to be a collaboration.
The first person who came to mind was James because he’s my fellow Brummie and I know his music has such a great underground club vibe to it,” she says. “I wrote in my notes ‘bloodclat money’ and when James got to the studio he was saying, ‘Where is my coin, where is my money?’ I was like, ‘Wait, this is meant to be!
It’s meant to be about money.'” As a freelance artist and performer, Peppa explains that “it can sometimes be a hassle to be paid” and James “reminded” her of various instances in which she had to wait a substantial amount of time for her “sterling” to be processed.
