After taking over the first half of 2022 with her singles “Muerte En Vida” and “Te Quiero Mal,” today award-winning Mexican singer-songwriter Dama Vicke returns with her moving new song “Elefante,” the fourth to be released from her highly anticipated upcoming album.
At a time when women’s rights are being unjustly challenged and are wrongfully being put in danger, Dama Vicke arrives valiantly to become a potent voice for women everywhere with her latest release, which she penned alongside her friend and colleague Omar Roque. “Elefante,” wich was produced by Agustin Espin of Amigos Invisibles, was inspired by a movie by director Carla Forte, with whom Dama Vicke also partnered on the track’s riveting visual accompaniment. The song sees the acclaimed artist taking on the patriarchy and the rules and consequences that women are forced to suffer with on a daily basis, tackling a number of troubling issues such as the apprehension that still exists toward the gender, male and social control, inequality, and male abuse.
