Masego – “Big Girls”

Masego told Hypebeast that the track was inspired by a recent trip to Kenya, explaining, “I was in Nairobi, and there was a group of women that were the life on the party — I’m talkin’ Lizzo energy. I asked someone who they were, and they told me ‘that’s the Big Girls Crew.’ So I made a song about this party I went to the great continent and just painted a scene of this cool event, called it the Cake Club, Big Girls get in free.”
