Muni Long, formerly known as hitmaker Priscilla Renea, is gaining some serious momentum. Fresh off the release of last year’s “Build a Bae” with Yung Bleu, the rising R&B musician returns today with another fiery collab: “Thot Thoughts,” alongside rapper Sukihana, is the newest single off Long’s forthcoming spring EP.
Much like her play on words with “Build a Bae,” Long’s “Thot Thoughts” is clever and undeniable. In the “Thot Thoughts” music video (styled by Joe Exclusive), Long and Sukihana are soaked in a sexy red light and dance on stripper poles. “The video for ‘Thot Thoughts’ was a chance for me to explore being more open about the sensual side of myself,” Long says. “I love that I got to express such a historically taboo subject in a fun and casual way lyrically, melodically and visually.”Long says “working with Suki was a breeze,” adding that “she’s so cute and bubbly. Even more fun that she was comfortable to be filming out in the Florida Everglades as we are both Florida girls. She was always my first choice to feature on ‘Thot Thoughts’ and she gave an absolutely perfect performance.”
After a decade of writing multiplatinum smashes for various superstars, Priscilla Renea manifests her future as Muni Long. Co-mingling R&B, rap, and pop, she beckons immersion with a stirring, striking, and soulful signature style on a debut EP titled Black Like This. An unbelievable journey brought her to this point. It started behind-the-scenes as a songwriter, where she accumulated a diverse catalog of hits for the likes of Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Madonna, Chris Brown and Selena Gomez. But after a series of intimate and open conversations, she decided to level up as a creator and actualize her innermost ambitions, adopting the name Muni Long and embarking on a solo project. “Priscilla is the name I was born with” she says. “I always wanted to be Muni Long though. She’s fearless. She has intent. She is me.”
