Lene - Play with Me
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Lene - Play with MeAqua’s former Barbie Girl can be commended for successfully taking on Mattel. But Lene Nystrom’s committed an unpardonable sin with her solo debut. Where Aqua reveled in harmless Euro bubblegum, Nystrom is a scary disco dominatrix, wielding mind-numbing beats and vulgar sexual come-ons. Especially icky is “It’s Your Duty,” with lines like “Shake that booty booty/small fat or round or juicy,” and “Bite U” in which she declares “Just cuz I have red hair/don’t mean that I’m red down there.” Really.
