Ana Popovic’s Strong Taste

This International Women’s Day, renowned guitarist Ana Popovic releases ‘Strong Taste’, the third single taken from her forthcoming studio album, Power, due from ArtisteXclusive Records on 5th May.

“For the music video for “Strong Taste,” I chose the setting at the Nebraska State Fair, the tractor race, and my band just kickin’ it, having fun, as the perfect setting for this track with heavy slide guitars and strong blues pocket,” said Popovic.

‘Strong Taste’ is about S.E.X.  Strong taste for the get down, or whatever or whoever your get down might be. And you’ve got a taste for it. Nothing’s going to stop you. If there’s a person out there that you want, and everything – His/her style, swag, sex appeal, his/her reputation, sense of cool, all of it is like you want it, all of it fits your taste, then you’re coming with your “high beams on!” – You’re coming to get it!”

Interestingly, Popovic  released the second single for Power, ‘Recipe Is Romance’, on Valentine’s Day. “Self-love is the first and foremost in this song,” reflected Popovic on that single.

“The story that people see is a romantic music video of a woman getting ready for her date, getting the right clothes, cooking her best meal – looking at the cookbook while taking a bath, in her own speed, it’s a laidback day of her getting ready for the evening. But the hidden message here is – women are being diagnosed with what seems like a devastating prognosis every day on this planet. Some women are being left by their partners to battle it alone, can you believe that?! Some are being left what they and the world see as less ‘women’ than before.”

Continues Ana, “This is basically a powerful message that you can still feel good in your skin, feel attractive, feel sexy, just a few months after a treatment and you can get on with your new life – there is future! – You can reinvent and embrace your new look, your new self- and love it and let the world around you witness your strength and your beauty while you discover a new you. Apart from that it’s a gorgeous song and a showcase to some awesome jazzy licks on my D’Angelico guitar and even Yamaha nylon string guitar played simultaneously.”
