EXTRA FR!ES is the new smash from Kosovo-Albanian pop princess ILIRA. The glossy empowerment anthem encourages everyone to embrace their bodies and feel confident.
Regardless of society’s pressure to look a certain way, ILIRA urges the listener to choose EXTRA FR!ES over exercise. There is something cinematic about the way ILIRA paints a body-positive world with humorous lines such as “Body wavy like you all up in Bali“ or “Steal his fries and then get him out of your head.“ The 4-octave-singer occupies a space in pop that is hers only: glittery pop songs that cause dance floor euphoria while spreading important messages wrapped in clever lyrics. The bouncy and sparkling production of EXTRA FR!ES drills fierceness into our brains, forcing us to re-evaluate our views on body image, body acceptance and weight stigma. EXTRA FR!ES is a delicious treat, and ILIRA’s sonic kick in the butt for everyone refusing to get those EXTRA FR!ES.
