New Video: Phoebe Ryan’s Modern, Feminist Anthem “Dollar Bill”

With the early 2015 release of a trippy, post-modern mashup/cover of of R. Kelly’s “Ignition” and Miguel’s “Do You Like,” followed the release of by her highly-anticipated full-length debut effort, Mine, Texas-born, New Jersey-reared and Los Angeles-based pop artist Phoebe Ryan exploded both across the blogosphere and nationally — and throughout the past year, Ryan has developed a reputation for a breathily coquettish vocal style, emotionally and sexually frank lyrics paired around infectiously catchy hooks and slickly contemporary electronic productions. Her latest single “Dollar Bill,” is a collaboration with Kid Ink and it will likely further cement her attention for infectiously catchy and coquettish pop while the song thematically focuses on the big dreams and the life of constant hustle that many artists have but just underneath the surface is a feminist anthem similar to Eurythmics and Aretha Franklin’s “Sisters Are Doin’ It For Themselves,” says — that a woman can clearly have dreams of taking over the world and picturing her own face on a dollar bill, just like the dudes.
