On first glance, it’s hard to tell if D E N A‘s “Cash, Diamond Rings, Swimming Pools” is so bad it’s good, or just plain good. After sitting on D E N A’s viral hit for a few days, I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s not just good, but completely amazing.
Over synthy hipster-hop beats and hand claps, the Berlin-based Bulgarian talker drawls about chilling with her friends while dancing her way through a flea market.
“Cash, diamond rings, swimming pools“, she ironically repeats from the inside of a market stall selling knock-off designer perfumes and tacky sequined scarves.
D E N A is already being compared to M.I.A. (albeit, a less self-important M.I.A.), but she’s more like the next Kreayshawn, and “Cash, Diamond Rings, Swimming Pools” is the new “Gucci Gucci”.
