With a smooth, almost too-cool drawl, Tommy Genesis—the Vancouver, BC, “fetish rapper”—spits boastful rhymes about sex, having fun, and bossing around. Currently touring her self-titled 2018 album, Tommy takes on the tone of a hyper-sexualized Britney circa 2000, with lots of undeniable, girl-positive flexing. This album is brimming with delicious bangers such as the Charlie XCX remix “100 Bad,” which celebrates the many “bad bitches” of the city who work it “up and down the stick/In the whip real low in the schoolgirl fit.” Later, Tommy takes on the role of boss again in the sex positive, electro-poppy “Play with It,” with an instantly sing-able chorus that entreats her partner to “Play wit' the pussy, wanna play wit’ the pussy/Come get a hooky, baby, come get a hooky.” Now that’s a hook that’s simultaneously danceable, liberating, and hot—a description summing up everything good about Tommy Genesis.
