Video: My Favorite Color -“Cut Me In“
The Ever Experimental Artist Switches Up His Style, Crafting An Immersive New Single That’s As Sardonic as It Is Atmospheric
“The Pittsburgh MC once again flashes signs of brilliance on his new song ‘Old News.’ His zany personality and frenetic flow are the main drivers of his fun-filled anthem.” – Billboard
“He truly brings you on a sonic journey that contains so many different styles, sounds, and narratives, you have no choice but to pay attention.” – Lyrical Lemonade
“His music is powerful. Each bar drips with the confusion and existential dread of a man who feels out of place in his world.” – Noisey
A rising artist with tantalizing talent, My Favorite Color reveals a new shade of his artistry with every release. Slowing down the tempo as he explains how he really feels, My Favorite Color shares “Cut Me In,” his new single. A change of pace from recent singles that showed off the artist’s manic and lyrical side, “Cut Me In” is languid and introspective, layering atmospheric synths atop trap-style percussion. Rather than attacking the beat, My Favorite Color sits back, finessing the contours of the instrumental with warbling melodies. The song finds the artist born Anthony Willis using a defiant, yet exhausted sigh as he confronts gatekeepers and two-faced friends who act differently in public and in private. The immersive “Cut Me In” follows in the wake of singles like the sardonic “Frustrated,” which racked up over 400k views and the kinetic “Dead It,” which dropped last month with a colorful video.
Following the release of his deeply personal debut album Velma in 2020, My Favorite Color used 2021 to show off his technical rhyming chops, keen sense of visuals, and absurdist sense of humor. In “Old News,” a bouncily colorful single praised by Billboard (a “flash of brilliance”) and Lyrical Lemonade, MFC worked a fast-moving flow, delivering punchlines at a rapidfire rate. The song was accompanied by a virtuosic music video, in which the artist portrayed multiple characters a la Eddie Murphy, ranging from a kidnap victim, to a possibly untrained pilot, to a truth-telling stand-up comedian. The artist followed “Old News” with “Mayday,” a jazzy and off-kilter banger, a lyrical showcase that veers to every corner of the rapper’s mind, mixing party-positive flexes with tongue-twisting geopolitical analysis. “Mayday” and “Old News” displayed the prodigious artistic gifts that inspired Pigeons & Planes to name him a Best New Artist in September 2021.
My Favorite Color is currently hard at work on his next project, a wide-ranging effort that properly continues the story he started with Velma. Stay tuned for much more music and eye-popping videos from My Favorite Color in the coming weeks and months on the road to the new album.
