[EXPLICIT] “Don’t Touch” Official Music Video | Genesis Be | I.Be.Tollah

[Artist Statement: ” I wrote “Don’t Touch” at a strip club in New Orleans (Bourbon Street). The bouncer told the guys in my group “Don’t Touch The Dancers,” and I found this an interesting concept. Jotting lyrics on a napkin that came with my cocktail, I began exploring the power dynamic that I was seeing between the dancers and the men in the club. I wondered at what point the women were considered objects of admiration and at what point they were considered objects of degradation. I found it fascinating, the power that these woman had over these men… spending their paychecks for bit of affection and attention. The single “Don’t Touch” explores the boundaries that men and women have with each other… to be played or to be the player… Yeah, I guess that’s it”
