Now here's something different for Pop Trash Addicts - a catchy rap jam about a pot dealer by Australia's latest hip hop sensation, CC Martini. Don't be too put off by that description. CC might throw it down with the best of them but this rap queen keeps one foot firmly planted in the pop world. "Champagne Taste" is an intriguing debut single. It was released a couple of months ago and peaked at #68, which is actually pretty decent for an independent act specialising in this kind of bizarre pop/rap/rock concoction. I usually don't stray too far from the trashy pop scene but "Champagne Taste" is really quite hard to resist with its cheeky lyrics about dealing drugs and crashing parties. The chorus is a real treat. I'm sure there are plenty of us who can sympathise with CC's dilemma of having "champagne taste and a minimum wage"! Not bad at all for someone who was discovered at a Christmas party in 2005. Check out the video below.
Make sure you add CC as a friend on Myspace. You can purchase the CD single from Chaos or download it from iTunes. CC's album, called "All The Way" is scheduled for release in May 2008. Should be worth a listen!
