LA-based alt-R&B artist Michi is back with a new single, “Talk Big”—a chill track about reclaiming one’s power and keeping people in check.
If it’s not the juicy bass line that gets you hooked in, it should be the spacey and alien-like background vocals. That’s where Michi’s voice, raspy and sensual, comes as the kicker. The chorus jumps up with fluctuating synths against an R&B melody. Growing up Latina with musical influences all around and inspired by Motown and Soul rhythms, one can definitely hear those qualities in Michi’s own music.
Lyrically, the track acts as a total blow-off to egotistical people everywhere. Michi knows that no one needs that type of energy in their life when she says, "having this platform now, the song serves as a cathartic release and a way to call out that guy whose head is up his own ass. Some people can just be trash, and 'Talk Big' is my moment to check them in the most cheeky way possible.”
