Another M was voted one of the top 14 albums of 2014 by Ithaca Journal music writer Jim Catalano. Check out the lead single — Crown — and then purchase the project below. Armed with an infectious hook sung by Sammus and effortless flow rapped over a relentless dance beat, “Crown,” stands out as Sammus’ most danceable anthem to date. On the track, Sammus delivers deadpan yet confident taunts about the game’s two main bosses — Ridley and Kraid — and Samus’ unrelenting ambitions to snatch Mother Brain’s crown for good.
You can find “Crown” on Sammus’ afrofuturistic concept EP, Another M, available now on Bandcamp, iTunes, Spotify, Loudr and all other digital DSPS [NuBlack Music Group]. If you feel like rapping along, check out the annotated lyics on Rap Genius.
