Val Flynn and Miss Blanks team up on massive ‘Werq 4 It’
The absolutely enormous new single from VAL FLYNN, titled ‘Werq 4 It’, is one of those lightbulb musical moments, where two forces collide while the rest of us have to brace for impact. The way VAL FLYNN and collaborator MISS BLANKS completely step into focus into the fluro-lit soundscape of the song and command attention is something that’s hard to master, but they’ve done it with so much ease that you’d think they’re not trying at all.
But, if history shows us anything, both of these artists don’t really have to try – they exude star power with their mere presence, and can captivate listeners with their personalities alone. That being said, both Flynn and Blanks still give ‘Werq 4 It’ their all and the result is a strong, empowering anthem backed up with a whole lot of attitude.
Flynn takes on a far more assertive role than in previous single ‘Stuck On Repeat’, acting like a teacher with class well and truly being in session. He flips from his beautiful raw vocals to assertive autotune with massive impact, giving listeners no option but to be empowered. When Blanks struts in, you know that she’s not here to play around. As always, her flow is direct and confident as Blanks lays a spitfire verse over the haunting, bass-heavy production. Class may be in session, but as soon as that bell rings, no listener of ‘Werq 4 it’ is going to forget what dream team Val Flynn and Miss Blanks have just taught them.
