David Macklovitch and Patrick Gemayel, the duo known as Chromeo, describe themselves as the "the only successful Arab/Jewish partnership since the dawn of human culture." In an interview with Rolling Stone, they share White Women is an exploration in "Larry David Funk" and that the lyrics are "some of the funniest [they've] ever written."
"Sexy Socialite" is the hilarious second single from White Women, their fourth studio album set for release in 2014. Here are some entertaining and laugh-worthy lines from the track:
You're a sexy socialite
I wish you were a socialist
Instead of worrying about your name on the list.
That you should get in there for free
You're too cool to pay a fee
And the owner is like your family.
(Somebody help me!)
Getting back to the music, the sound is pure dance funk. It's disco flavored, upbeat, and ready for the dance floor. According to Pitchfork, "Sexy Socialite" will be available for purchase on iTunes on October 29th. "Over Your Shoulder," the first single on White Women, is available for streaming and free download right here at Zumic.
Chromeo are currently on their international Fall tour with upcoming dates in Los Angeles and New York.
