So released couple days ago was Mac Miller’s latest album “Divine Feminine”. The album, to me, is about the euphoria love produces and the sexual inception that dopamine releases. Skin, record number four, begins with the moans of women saying, “Yes daddy…”. The different symphonic sounds from the feminine voices insinuate the pleasures of a woman and complete surrender when making love. It is a very sexy song. Not in terms of sex, but in the sense that two people are connected. “Divine Feminine” is not to be confused with chauvinism or the stereotype of women being weak. No. The album speaks to the artist, Mac Miller, and his feelings towards the subject and his experiences. Subjectivity does not exist. There is not a single name drop or disrespect.
Now let’s discuss the cover art. To check off some elements, it is a compilation of a hexagonally stylized mirror, a woman with long brunette hair that sits on her right shoulder behind the opening of the mirror and a blue sky with clouds drifting in the core of the mirror, as if to reflect the outside and a coral pink background. The cover predicts the records well. The soft blue and pink portrays a sweet cotton candy incense. Now, the conflicting character seems to be the woman. She is a mystery woman and I believe that is what makes her so interesting. With only exposing her backside, it doesn’t give any room for critique or judgment. The album is available for purchase on iTunes! Go get it and allow the sonics to sink so deep into your ears that you can’t do anything but smile.
