To understand why @CubanDaSavage ‘s “Bankrupt” is so popular, you must read between the lines

Published

on

On Dec. 6, 2017 uploaded “Bankrupt” to SoundCloud, and nearly four months later, the track is more popular than ever before. The term “bankrupt” has become synonmous with her.  It sits at a little more than two million listens on SoundCloud. Everyday, Aaliyah Keef retweets mentions on Twitter from fans who live and die by the song. With the way things are looking, it doesn’t look like the song will slow down anytime soon. So, what gives? In the cycle of hip-hop, four months is much too long for a song that isn’t getting radio play. It should be finito. Done. On to the next, as Jay-Z so eloquently put it. Why exactly is Cuban Doll’s track having such a magnetic, if not peculiar, run?  Well, the answers lie in the song itself.

Cuban Doll  herself represents an interesting juxtaposition in hip-hop. Whereas attractive women in rap usually use their womenly whiles to sway fans with sexually explicit music, Cuban Doll goes in the opposite direction. She’s jaw-droppingly beautiful, but her music is for the streets, not the strip-club. You won’t find her decked in six-inch heels, a strapless dress, and holding a gigantic purse. She’s posted in the cut with a Draco, decked in Jordans, Tommy Hilfiger, and iced out. She represents a new wave of femine confidence that isn’t rooted in sexuality; she’s just as capable as many man to defend herself. Think of a modern day Rosie The Riveter.

“Bankrupt” reaffirms this power. It’s not about anything sexual, it’s about cash – or therein, lack of. It’s badass, blunt, brutish, and contemporary. She knows how to speak to the masses in a way that both girls and guys identify with. Since it lacks the distinctive barbie-ish drawl of Nicki Minaj or the blunt sexual ilk of Cardi B, it’s as much an aux cord necessity as it is a nice change of pace from radio monotony.

So the next time you hear “Bankrupt” – believe me, you’ll hear it even more in the near future – don’t be annoyed. Listen to it for what it is; a celebration of newfound wealth, an attack on anyone lacking the necessary funds to survive, and a sonic dash of youth’s exuberance. It’ll make you laugh, and the video will make you want Cuban Doll in many ways. But she’s not beating her sexiness over your head, she’s just telling it like it is while being herself. And that’s what makes “Bankrupt” and her artistry itself so powerful; she’s an unflinching, original character that will change the way that America looks at traditional rap for decades to come.
