Formerly known as Maxxy From The Trap, Atlanta based R&B singer MaxKaella launched her new persona in August, with ‘In My Bag’, a soulful and buoyant, yet uproarious duet with Dasia Gray. Her new single, ‘Money Dance’, keeps the momentum going – she previously showed she’s got it, now she’s gonna flaunt it.
‘Money Dance’ is authentic hot Southern hip-hop, with everything that style commands – booming kicks, skittering hi-hats, synths, bass, and of course, the effortless groove of MaxKaella herself. Oozing confidence and absolute assurance, she knows what sort of man she wants, and – owning her own finances – she knows exactly what she wants to do with him.
It’s clear from the get-go that MaxKaella is an accomplished artist, as she selects the perfect notes and rhythms for her range, and releases them at the exact moments to ensure the musical tension is heightened, and that the track is driven forward. She seduces with the track, and the accompanying music video is equally as seductive, and picks up where ‘In My Bag’ left off; the lighting, cool washes of purples and pinks, reminds us of the summer track. The main difference of course is that ‘In My Bag’ saw MaxKaella share the stage; this time with ‘Money Dance’ she’s having a solo show, and makes the most of being the centre of attention. She struts, gyrates, and makes love to the camera, demonstrating her sex appeal which has made her name in Atlanta’s R&B scene.
