Scissor Sisters’ New Song “Let’s Have A Kiki”: Listen

After the majestic euphoria of “Only The Horses”, the Scissor Sisters are heading back to their sleazy selves for “Let’s Have A Kiki”, a buzz single off their upcoming LP Magic Hour. The track begins with a lengthy spoken intro of a highly annoyed (and annoying) woman leaving a voicemail for her friend, with the Scissters finally coming in, demanding, “Let’s have a kiki!”

So what is a “kiki”? Ana Matronic explains it “a party for calming all your nerves.” Urban Dictionary tell us it means “to get overly excited catching up with your girlfriends”. It’s apparently also a slang term for a woman’s nether-regions in the Philippines, and yet others we’ve talked to say it’s a nickname for cocaine. Maybe it’s all of these things and none of these things at the same time? Whatever it means, you can listen to it below.

    “Kiki” is also a slang term that was used in early 20th-century American lesbian and gay communities to refer to women who were neither butch nor femme in terms of gender presentation and/or sexual role.

    I feel almost certain that it’s a meaning of which our beloved Sisters are aware.

    Can’t wait for the album!

    Kiki is drag queen sex/a drag queen party, and the voice at the beginning is a drag queen phoning her friend: it’s a man’s voice on the answer machine, but the ‘woman’ calling tells her friend to ‘put on your heels!’. There’s quite a lot of drag references in the song: wigs, ‘hunty’, ‘What’s the T’…
