    While goth hip hop artist Dana Dentata readies her debut album Pantychrist for a 2021 release through Roadrunner Records, she's just dropped a wonderfully dark and badass new music video for 'DO U LIKE ME NOW?', which she initially released as a standalone single back in October last year!

    The video features an appearance from adult film star Eliza Ibarra who Dana Dentata drew inspiration from for the song. Ibarra experienced a viral moment back in 2011 hserself when she posted a video titled “Do You Like Me Now?” to Tumblr - a reaction to unrealistic expectations placed on women by men, which she endured at a young age as she struggled with low self-esteem.  The viral video left a lasting impact on Dana Dentata who sampled it for this song, seizing the reins on the narrative of being a woman in a patriarchal society, transmuting her trauma and weaponising it.

    Dana says of the inspiration: 

    “I saw the ‘Do You Like Me Now?’ video by 12-year-old Eliza one day at the studio and I thought it was bad ass. It instantly inspired me to talk about all the other bullshit things that are expected of us and projected at us. I related to it because I was actually in a relationship where I had to drastically change my hair, clothes, nails, my personality, everything for someone, I was really screaming a form of ‘do you like me now, bitch?’ inside. Being able to recreate this experience but take his ass out and free my inner child was my redemption. I feel like the song and video have the same energy as Eliza's original video and whether you are a 12-year-old girl or a porn star we can all relate to feeling pressured by society to change ourselves. To have Eliza in it made the video so meaningful and literal.”
