King Kong #12

King Kong #12 the fetish issue

Spice is the Queen of Dancehall for the Kings & Queens issue AW21. Our Multiprincess explodes the archetypes of feminine power, the concept of worship and powers aesthetics. We got hooked on the idea of a post-apocalyptic princess, the subjects she rules over, and the symbols that could exist in this fantastic world. Ashnikko has travelled far and wide in both her life and music. From North Carolina to the Baltic Sea, and finally in London, her mezzo-soprano voice soars over a range of influences. Her music is “angry, femme, fairy, crybaby, god complex, pop punk peepeepoopoo,“. Her Tokyo street-look may be serious fun, but her views on intersectional feminism are equally serious and inform her lyrics. “I think of myself as a king one day, a queen the next, a little Princess. I think about lounging around my house in a silk gown just romantically drinking a glass of wine and dancing to fairy music and being decadent and finding decadence in my daily routine” On the 10-year journey to her debut album, SPICE is enjoying over a decade of dominance as Queen of the Stage. For over a decade, Spice has loaded dancehall’s cannon of sexually provocative lyrics that are synonymous with the genre. Despite the minimal spotlight female Jamaican artists gain in mainstream media in the United States, their hip-hop counterparts have benefitted from the same steamy imagery that results in viral sensations. Spice, however, is a relentless force breaking down barriers for contemporary dancehall artists and women across all genres.
