EDITORS’ NOTES

Having already earned street cred during her stint with the Latin rap collective Makiza, Ana Tijoux digs deep into her psyche on this breakthrough 2010 album, her second release as a solo artist. The Paris-reared daughter of Chilean exiles who escaped the Pinochet dictatorship, Tijoux explores themes of loss, loyalty, injustice, and identity here. The occasional French raps (“Oulala”) give the album a worldly sophistication, while the sparse, jazzy production throughout is a nod to ’90s-era New York hip-hop.

LOVE IT!

I love to hear a fresh take on a Rap song. A Spanish Female rapper. I LOVE IT!!!! I first heard it on Breaking Bad. Amazing show by the way. My boyfriend and I immediately loved it. I'm 41 and he's 51. This song captivates across generations. My boyfriend doesn't even like RAP. But he loves Ana's voice and so do I.

1977 what a great year/song!

Wow, while watching Breaking Bad, the background music is dropping the song 1977... I immediately used the app Shazam and found it. Bought it. Love it. Very original song. A+
