Get 2 Kno Me

Pop/hip hop artist Yaysh has returned with the romantic, emotional and sexually free ‘Get 2 Kno Me’. The track is one of a string of singles the artist has been releasing over recent months. Focusing on themes of falling in love, joy and sadness, the reggae-pop song is calming yet provocative, highlighting this culture of being afraid to fall in love.

The accompanying video uses nudity to further spread her message of vulnerability and self-esteem through mock fearless love scenes, embroidered with lighter comedy. Furthermore, she emphasises diversity and the fact you have to bare it all to truly find love, regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation as Yaysh explains, “We deserve to celebrate our bodies and our beauty and sexuality and feel at home with who we are. We don’t need to be ashamed.”

Yaysh on the song and video: “Nudity is being used as a metaphor and message for baring it all because being naked is a form of completely showing yourself, at least on a physical level. It is a sign of inherent confidence in being human, that there is nothing wrong with who we are, nothing wrong with love, love making, being completely naked and showing your entirety and letting people judge. We deserve to feel comfortable in our own skin and to make love and enjoy ourselves and being human fully!

“The challenge to the listener and viewer is to take a leap, take a chance and be yourself unabashedly and from there, love, joy, acceptance and warmth follow towards oneself and the world. Everyone in this video is offering a gift to the viewer of their own vulnerability. It’s a Big Message.”

    1. And as usual the boys are kept hidden in the back and unexposed.
      Not showing their entirety after all.

  1. I’m not sure the artist would feel the same about nudity if they were not all attractive people in the video. I think a better message would be that different people have different tastes in what is “beautiful”, which are not represented within the social norms. But music videos are not about any ‘message’…

    I see this as not uncovering vulnerability at all, but about showing off their own attractiveness by trying to sexually provoke, while refusing to admit it’s about showing off and being sexually provocative. There is something very female about that, it must be said.

  2. In the music biz, it must be said that while all artists are performers, not all performers are artists. ‘Nuff said.

  3. As horselips says, not all performers are artists. Add to it here from these fingers that not all artists are performers. Do feel that YAYSH is trash.
