Today, multifaceted singer-songwriter Fousheé graces fans with the release of her song and visualizer “double standard.” The record, co-written and produced by BNYX, sees the music polymath tackle gender roles in relationships and champion respect and reciprocity. Former collaborator Steve Lacy appears on the cover art and visualizer for “double standard,” which clocks in just over three minutes.
“double standard” marks Fousheé’s first single since the release of her critically acclaimed project time machine. Released in 2021, the 10-song offering contains features from Lil Yatchy and Steve Lacy while songs like “my slime” and “paper plane” propelled into popularity. This new record sees the New Jersey native step back into the limelight after a brief hiatus, sonically unfolding a range of emotions like love, self-realization, and more.
“‘double standard’” is addressing outdated gender roles that I have experienced in past relationships and rebelling against them. The imbalance frustrates me,” the singer shares. She adds, “Don’t expect anything from me that you wouldn’t give me, including respect and loyalty. I match energy. “I wanted to feature Steve Lacy in the visualizer/artwork to mostly to stir up thought. It’s kind of a bold move to make out with someone on artwork for the world to analyze, but that’s what the song represents. Breaking the rules.”
