Fans have been waiting for it for several days. The feat of Aya Nakamura and Damso is finally here. Dégaine, their song in common, was unveiled this Wednesday at 5 p.m. on Youtube, accompanied by its clip. And what is it about? About a flirtation between a hot girl (but obviously not sure enough of herself) and a “pricked” (but toxic) guy. Text explanation.
From the start, Aya Nakamura knows what awaits her. “I was told you’re dangerous but you’re cute / He’s too my cam / He’s going to bring me problems,” she begins.
There is enough to be on high alert from the outset. It’s 2022, women shouldn’t have time for “dangerous” guys who will “bring problems back”. We’ve all wasted enough time already.
“I like it, you know, when it’s spicy,” replies the singer. Well, Aya Nakamura seems sure of herself, let’s give her the benefit of the doubt.
“To your little heart I captured, I set fire”
After a first verse and a chorus, make way for Damso: “I declare a flame that will scare the firefighters, I still have the heart of a pirate on the site. You know the moula I know the dangers, your guy dreams of doing the milli, I’ve been doing it for years”. Yeah. Okay. It’s disappointment on the speaking level. The rapper had accustomed us to better.
He pursues. ” Hello ? I took your number from the Diallo’s cousin, she told me that you have a djo, but that you prefer bastards”. We immediately feel that this guy is a trustworthy person… “You’ll like to hate me, I’ll do you dirty, I’m not going to respect you”, he continues. There, there is reason to be a little (a lot) doubtful: it’s a flirting technique, right? And does it work?

A few sentences later, we understand why Damso behaves in such a “clumsy” way (yes, that’s an understatement). “I captured your little heart, I set it on fire,” says Aya Nakamura, who obviously knew how to analyze it. Oh yeah, you’re pissed off at me,” she adds. So basically, the boy is in love, he has trouble managing his emotions and is showing off. We almost feel sorry for him, the poor thing. In truth, no: it is not because someone, in this case a man, is destabilized that he can behave anyhow and reap indulgence. Admittedly, the singer allows herself to calm the clumsy a little with a “You’re too much on my ribs / on me you’re too hot / you’re too sure of yourself”. But still.
With Dégaine, a probable future hit for the summer, or at least for the spring, Aya Nakamura and Damso sign a fine illustration of toxic masculinity. Are we still there today?
