Flo Milli and Kenny Beats have dropped a brand-new collaboration, “Roaring 20s.”
The swagger-filled track samples “If I Were a Rich Man” from the classic musical Fiddler on the Roof. The Alabama rapper puts a braggadocious spin on the iconic tune accompanied by infectious production, courtesy of Kenny.
In a statement, Milli explained in a statement that she named the track after the time period because it “was a period in history of dramatic social and political change.” She added: “Last year I was able to break through during a very difficult time for not only our country, but the world. Born in 2000, and having my breakout year in 2020, I feel like I’m living in the new age of the Roaring Twenties.”
“One of the most familiar symbols of the Roaring Twenties was the birth of the new independent woman, known in those years as a flapper,” she continued. “In addition to being more sexually free than previous generations, the women of the Roaring Twenties had the bobbed hair, the short skirts, the drankin’, the smokin’, looks and participated in activities that were deemed ‘unladylike.’ My lyrics, my style and my lifestyle all resonate with that freedom and I AM the Roaring Twenties.”
Last year, Milli released a number of collabs, including “Better Be” with Big Freedia, “Plain” with BENEE and Lily Allen, as well as “Mean” featuring $NOT. She also dropped her debut EP Ho, Why is You Here?, which featured the tracks “Like That Bitch,” “Send the Addy” and “May I.”
