Popdose Song Premiere: Michelle Joni, “ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOP QRSTUVWXYZ (Letters Are Better)”

Written by Music, Popdose Exclusives

What’s your power letter?

You’ve probably never been asked that question, but one just popped into your mind, didn’t it? Maybe it was your initial or perhaps a rare bird, like X or Q. What does your letter say about you?

At a time when energy and self-realization is praised and coveted, the new track by New York-based performance and musical artist Michelle Joni reinvents the alphabet, proving that learning never has to stop. In fact, Michelle advocates refreshing your basic-level learning skills; she created a preschool for adults to remind grown-ups of those golden days when there was always something new to explore.

On “ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ (Letters Are Better),” she and producer Robin Hood concoct a blend of pop, hip-hop and wordplay for a fresh spin on the ol’ ABCs. This isn’t the children’s nursery rhyme you remember from your youth. Rather, it’s a track perfect for getting your blood pumping while on the treadmill or during an intense yoga sesh — it just happens to be about the alphabet.
