Enter ‘HANG YOUR HAT’. Again co-produced by ‘THE WAVE’ collaborator Lionel Towers, OKENYO explains; “It’s telling it how it is with no fussing. Like a full stop, no questions.” She continues “This song came about by chance. Lionel and I were put together for a one off writing session to see if we would hit it off, and the rest is history. After a quick chat about artistic influences and an inevitable bonding over what we didn’t like, he got to work on the instrumentals and I opened the notes app and started writing.
Reminiscent of Missy Elliott’s powerful production and uber cool ‘don’t give a’ attitude, HANG YOUR HAT explores elements of Australia’s casual racism – getting stares from “just being who I am and who I is”. The song harnesses its punch through its acknowledgement and pride in self-expression.
