Salty, hot, and atmospheric! Ruths new single “Salty” is a pop sensation.  Mixing elements of classic pop production and hip-hop groove.

She gives us a taste of what it’s like to take the bitter, with the sweet, in this flavorful ensemble. The visuals match the incredible sonic production and vocal performance on this piece. She takes us on a journey through competitive lust, and hot irony.  She displays her divine power and “bossy” essence with antagonizing and edgy wordplay, embellished in airy and comfortable mid tones. The background vocals and add libs in this track, though very subtle, add a pretty cushion to the tough message and presentation of the song. 

The opening of the video is inspiring with a message that reads  “In the pageant of life, there are countless winners – they have all confidently tapped into the beauty of their one true self.” This statement allows the audience to get ready to experience a piece of art that is unique, and unsettling, yet attractive, and addictive. “You’re salty, i’m taken, you’re so salty got you craving, a woman like me.” these lyrics in itself are a perfect example of her addictive qualities.

Her frequencies will have you coming back for more!
