Her name is Dita – err, Lali. She’ll be your mistress tonight.
It’s been well over a minute since we last heard from Mariana “Lali” Espósito, Argentine Queen of Pop™, following a little hiatus from the music scene.
But she’s here now…with a few more whips and chains this time around.
La Lali arrived with her first song in over a year on Wednesday (January 12) with “Disciplina,” a dark and sultry, hot and heavy BDSM-themed dance-pop bop armed with a chorus that’ll make you want to bend over and assume the position for the Argentinian baddie at once.
There’s no beating around the bush on this Dano and Mauro De Tommaso production (although there may be some lashings): this is all about following orders, as Lali commands us to get on our knees from the first few seconds.
“Disciplina / Disciplina / Disciplina (Sub, dom) / Disciplina (Sub, dom).” Oof!
The blood red-hued accompanying music video helps further illustrate the message, as she and a group of willing, cutout-heavy couture dancers start to pull shapes as the temperature rises. And when it comes time for Lali to show us how it’s done, she does and then some: that is one fucking fierce dancing queen.
There’s no doubt Lali is a student of Britney, as the throbbing tune and searing hot visual supply shades of everything from the “I’m A Slave 4 U” orgies (more BDSM!) to Blackout to “Work Bitch.” There’s a little Rihanna Rated R dominatrix edge and Miley‘s “Wrecking Ball” with the giant chain, too.
It hits all the right pop girl iconic visual spots, basically, and is absolutely one of the first major pop bangers of 2022.
“Disciplina” is said to be the first single from her upcoming fifth studio album.
And If Lali plans on having her heel firmly on our necks like this for the rest of the record, it’s going to hurt so good.
