We Appreciate Power

Grimes has just recently released a new single, "We Appreciate Power," along with an accompanying music video. Analyze the message(s) that Grimes is attempting to send with her lyrics, the aesthetics of the music video, or even the musical influences for the song itself.

  • An entire essay devoted to this one video. Is there some way to re-write this to put it in a broader setting? My guess is that a year from now no one will particularly care about this particular video so why address any importance or significance it might have? – Joseph Cernik 5 years ago
  • You could certainly expand this topic, perhaps by relating this particular song to Grimes's larger body of work. However, I think after watching the video or just listening to the lyrics it's fairly obvious that she is establishing a concise social commentary. An entire article was published on this site not too long ago dedicated entirely to Childish Gambino's "This is America." I don't think it's silly to think that someone could write an in-depth and intriguing article about this song and video, too. – ees 5 years ago
  • I would also look at other musical artists' works and the messages they sent. This topic alone seems too broad. – BMartin43 5 years ago
  • did you perhaps mean this topic is too narrow? i would think that expanding the topic to encompass other artists would cause this topic to become more broad – ees 5 years ago
