New Music: Electrik Red – ‘Put Ya Money On It (Africa)’

Electrik Red

Electrik Red shakes it to the ground on “Put Ya Money On It (Africa),” a tribal-influenced banger produced by Midi Mafia. The song is a teaser of what’s to come from the foursome’s sophomore album How to Be a Lady: Volume 2 and not their first single. “This was a nod to our roots,” Binkie tells Rap-Up.com.

Binkie, Naomi, Leslie, and Sarah have been writing with Young Money’s Shanell for the project, on which they explore new territory. “Musically we’re gonna take some more risks and kinda go for an international sound,” Binkie told Amerie when she interviewed her at Rap-Up’s Pre-BET Awards Lounge.

Journey to Africa with the ladies below.

    The lack of a truly great girl group right now is sad. ER isn’t bad — their first album was excellently produced, decently sang, but the lyrics were beyond atrocious. I’m glad they dropped that faux bad girl schtick cause it was tired. That being said, this song isn’t bad and it gives me a little hope that they want me for themselves.

    You can obviouly tell that he is talking about the illuminaty and the bible. And I like how they changed the words. Kanye if you were such a genius then you wouldn’t of put the message that your in an organized group with control. And ya its talking about Annaki too when it says long ago thats when most of those groups were formed. I also says a story long ago and how it was sugar coated for the children it’s clearly talking about the bible. We christians are the children. The bible wasn’t made for spritual purpose its made for control.
