Tommy Genesis has returned with her new album goldilocks x.
It's the third studio album from Vancouver-born "fetish rapper," which she describes herself as in the very first track. Released via Downtown Records, the LP was executive-produced by Lil Rich and Genesis herself, boasting production by Good Times Ahead, the Martinez Brothers, Charlie Heat, Stelios, and more.
Finding a sweet spot between house-pop ("a woman is a god"), sneering rap ("men"), and emotive punk rock ("fuck u u know u can’t make me cry"), goldilocks x is anchored by the self-assured, libidinous, subversive swagger Tommy has gained a rep for.
"Goldilocks is that feeling when things feel 'just right,'" Genesis says in a press release. "Like you’re entering a space that makes sense, you just can’t put your finger on why but it just does. You don’t know why you like it but you do. The X is the unknown factor, the experimental element, the punk."
The album drop is accompanied by an avante-garde visualizer for single “a woman is a god,” directed by and edited by Genesis. She also announced a world tour for goldilocks x, with dates scheduled across the U.S., Canada, UK, Ireland, Germany, the Netherlands, France, and Russia. It kicks off March of next year.
