Brit Smith (AKA Matisse) Returns With Will.i.am-Assisted Club Banger “Provocative (hiDhi)”
Brit Smith has one of the more complicated back stories in pop. She first made waves as one half of short-lived girl band Brit & Alex (they had a minor hit with “Let It Go” in 2008) before returning in 2010 under the alias Matisse. That phase produced the genuinely amazing “Better Than Her” — one of the best dance-pop singles in recent memory.
Unfortunately, that song never received the love it deserved and Brit went back to the drawing board. Don’t worry, this story has a happy ending! The persistent diva signed to Interscope Records earlier this year and just dropped her debut single (under her own name) and video. “Provocative (hiDhi)” teams the singer with omnipresent producer Will.i.am.
The result is a bone-shaking, bass-heavy club banger that absolutely compels you to move. Just ask the legendary Betty White. She signed up for the awesome video (it’s nice to see some decent choreography) and ends up showing Brit how to bust a move. Strippers and spin class instructors have a new favorite anthem! Watch the video after the jump.
