Sarahmée Essentials

It’s highly fitting that ​​Sarahmée named her 2021 album Poupée Russe, or Russian Doll: With each release, the Senegalese-Québécois rapper has revealed new layers of her personality and vision. Where her 2015 debut, Légitime, introduced an MC equally fond of gritty boom-bap textures and soft-focus melodic hooks (“Laisser tomber”), ​​Sarahmée truly came into her own with the 2019 breakthrough single “T’as pas cru,” an acoustic-speckled, dancehall-powered jam that doubles as a feminist anthem, with the MC declaring “the pussy run the world!” She continued to up the ante on Poupée Russe, whose lead single, “Elle est partie,” is a fierce girl-power manifesto set to hip-shaking Afrobeats.
