Slayyyter’s poisonous electro is reminiscent of the best Gaga in ‘Miss Belladonna’

One of the pop albums that we have recommended in recent weeks is Slayyyter. You’ll like it if you like Lady Gaga. Among the songs competing to make our best of 2023 lists are ‘Erotic Electronic’, which could be an outtake from Madonna’s 90s, and ‘Miss Belladonna’, which we choose as Song of the Day for this Saturday.

If we said that you will like the song if you like Lady Gaga, it was for a reason, and that is that its bridge seems closely related to ‘Bad Romance’. ‘Miss Belladonna’ is an even more electropop production, direct to the most nostalgic dance floors of the 80s. In addition, we have before us another “bad romance”, since belladonna is a plant known for its poisonous properties, which causes that the lyrics are a metaphor about toxic love: “I kiss him like poison” is the first phrase of the lyrics, while the chorus maintains that she would be “the bad one”: “He lives for love, and I live for Prada.”

There is no video clip per se, but the visualizer created is quite entertaining: Slayyyter dressed like a Village People leatherona, smoking and looking sideways. All pose. How to overcome the most popular comment on YouTube: “finally Christian music that I can play in my parents’ church.”
