CD Review: The Divine Feminine by Mac Miller
The Divine Feminine is definitely Mac Miller’s best (not to mention how amazing the album art is), and surprised many listeners because of how soft and unique it is. By juxtaposing brilliant piano melodies and hip-hop beats that are easy to dance to, Miller creates an album that is the best of both worlds: relaxing while keeping your foot tapping. Horns are utilized throughout the album as well, to give the album more of a soulful jazzy feeling in tracks such as “Stay”. The album title is misleading for some as the album does not tackle feminism throughout. Miller referred to the album as encompassing, “the feminine energy of the planet.” It is clear that the rapper’s girlfriend Ariana Grande had some influence on the album.
