Today, Moonchild Sanelly shares a lockdown-made video for empowering anthem Thunda Thighs, from new EP Nüdes. The Thunda Thighs video incorporates clips from fans who joined Moonchild Sanelly’s viral #thunderthighschallenge, with fans filming themselves during lockdown and sending footage to celebrate their bodies. The song is packed with Moonchild Sanelly's quintessentially infectious energy, and the new video - glitchy, kaleidoscopic and intentionally blown-out - compliments the song's self-empowering message. Watch below.
The video follows the release of Moonchild Sanelly's Nüdes EP, which will be available on limited edition blue moon vinyl for Black Friday Record Store Day on Nov 27th. You can purchase a copy from participating shops here.
Moonchild shares about the project, "The whole EP is about liberation. I have a range of fun experimental sounds mixed with day to day [or night to night ] - concepts and stories associated with my mission of liberation. Nüdes is a celebration of sharing the best parts of our curves and corners…. Nüdes is a record of self empowerment. Thunda Thighs is a fun-loving party of sexual expressiveness. I want to have every woman knowing every bit of their existence is worthy of being loved and valued. Knowing that you are that bitch. Owning it and celebrating it unapologetically."
The project follows the announcement of her feature on the Gorillaz album Strange Timez (out Oct 23rd) for the track With Love to an Ex, as well as her feature in Beyoncé's Black Is King visual album for the song MY POWER.
Fearless, inclusive and a lot of fun, Moonchild Sanelly is only just getting started. Her iconic personal style combined with an outspoken approach to female sexual empowerment has earned her collaborations with Beyoncé, Gorillaz, Diplo and Wizkid and built her a devoted fanbase - according to Damon Albarn, she is "a global superstar waiting to happen".
