Detroit LGBTQ hip hop provacatuer Siena Liggins is a quickly-rising artist who unapologetically values activism as much as she values beauty. Layering confident rap into breezy pop, Billboard named her a Top Ten new LGBTQ Artist of the Year and called her a “pop music fiend ready to write songs that you love to hate.” It’s a backhanded but appropriate compliment, as Liggins’ braggadocio translates into lesbian empowered “sexy and body positive anthems” (Detroit Free Press). She was the opening act touring nationally with last year’s TOP highlight Flint Eastwood. With an aptness for savoir-faire paired with flirtatious wordplay and catchy hooks, this show brings a fresh perspective to the popular territory of love and hip hop.
