A-Town homegirls Bosco and Speakerfoxxx just dropped their new video for "Shooter" and it's a bass-dropping, confetti cannon-popping summer jam with a lesson in self-esteem to boot. The song comes from their Girls in the Yard collab. Released by Fool's Gold Records, the project is full to the brim with anthemic girl power and party songs. Think of "Shooter" as the ride-or-die chick's club-banger lament upon realizing her dude ain't quite the hitter he hyped himself up to be, followed by the sense of empowerment that comes from being unafraid to fly solo.
But there's a parallel, if ironic, lesson for indie artists of all stripes to glean from Bosco and Speakerfoxxx's collabo. With solo grinds that have established them as noteworthy Atlanta-based artists and tastemakers for years, this collective effort is fueling a heightened level of success for both. You might say they're on some grown woman shit.embed-1
