PiNKII‘s new single “Pretty Girl Comet” picks up on this streak of excellence with an uncanny pairing of trap lyricism and anime aesthetics. In a usually squeaky-clean subculture where many artists are put into boxes that not only stifle creativity, but the progression of the artform overall PiNKII continues to make waves, bridging the gap between cultures.
Coming with a sugary sound aesthetic, “Pretty Girl Comet” is the latest in PiNKII’s arsenal to break free of all limitations placed upon Japanese Idols. Here she infuses lyrics typically found in trap music with a cute, catchy hook that isn’t as innocent as it sounds. Lines like “I don’t pop xans, just pour up the lean. Got my floating on my pretty girl comet, OG, matched with Japanese” lyrics come as a surprise to unassuming listeners thinking “Pretty Girl Comet” is just another catchy anime song.
