Abel Tesfaye's dark, twisted album is at odds with the glossy pop world he's been thrust into
Khia : My Neck, My Back
There have been musical tributes to cunnilingus before but the joys of rimming have as yet gone unsung. Until now
Even the purportedly ‘clean’ version (the one we prefer, truth be told) wouldn’t get within a mile of daytime radio. Which hopefully doesn’t mean that ‘My Neck, My Back’ will languish in obscurity, because it’s brilliant. Khia’s half-bored drawl suits lyrics like "You may have cheese/But so what, playa?/Get on your knees" down to the, er, ground, while the beats are as smouldering as the subject matter. Cracking, in every sense.
