Miss Red shares the latest fruits of her collaboration with The Bug, and addresses the 'sickness of relentless objectification' in her new video

Miss Red has shared the video for Dagga, cut from her superb forthcoming album produced by Kevin Martin (The Bug). You can watch the clip below.

The Moroccan-Polish-Israeli acid ragga dancehall star directly confronts her experiences of objectification, sexism and misogyny.

Speaking of the inspiration for the track, Miss Red said: "In my song ‘Dagga’ I’m addressing the tension between man and woman. The tension created by a woman’s wish to remain strong and beautiful, intellectually sexually and physically, without wishing to feel the sickness of relentless objectification by certain men, who purely regard women as meat or prey.

"I’m showing in the video how trapped a woman can feel, when she lets greedy men smother her with their ugly and selfish all-consuming lust for power. And how a woman can show sexist men that she’s so much more than a trophy. Certain men seek to erase a woman’s soul and heart with their animal craving, to reduce a woman to a personal sex doll, or domestic slave."

Today on tQ, check out our feature length interview with the artist, who discussed her forthcoming LP K.O. which we described as "a unique and extraordinary listen. Rooted in dancehall, bashment and reggae and subsequently mutated into something wholly alien".

Miss Red ft. The Bug play at Corsica Studios on Thursday July 19. K.O. is out this Thursday
