Lilly Wood & The Prick – You Want My Money

French-Israeli vocalist Nili Hadida and Parisian guitarist Benjamin Cotto formed Lilly Wood & The Prick in 2006. They cite β€˜80s French pop by Etienne DahoΒ andΒ Michel Delpech, guitaristsΒ J.J. CaleΒ andΒ Eric Clapton, and the ’60s soul ofΒ Aretha FranklinΒ andΒ Etta James as their inspirations. Apart from three French hit singles, their 2010 debut album Invincible Friends also included the original version of Prayer In C. Four years later, a Robin Schulz remix of this song provided the duo with their worldwide break-through. It went to #1 in most of Europe, was a Top 10 hit in Australia and also scored well in the US.

To date, they haven’t had another international hit, but their new single sounds like a solid tune. You Want My Money follows last year’s single Lonely Life. It’s the second single off the duo’s upcoming fourth album. Lyrically, it denounces our consumption society, which is based on expenses and unrealistic beauty norms. Musically however, it combines a retro rhythm with modern production, which results in a happy-sounding, groovy song.
