Michael Musto’s writings have tickled and uplifted us through many a summer, so it makes sense that he has now sung the best Pride anthem in ages. On the hypnotic single “Iconic,” Jean Ferreira did the backbeats and production while multi talented Musto wrote the top melody and lyrics and sang it with finesse. The result is danceable, fancy, stirring and tons of fun. 

“Your love is iconic, it’s demonic,” sings Musto, who also manages wordplay with “ironic” and platonic”. The song then takes us through romantic ice cream gorging, some light fighting, and a happy resolution, ending with “Happy Pride…to everyone who’s proud/You’re iconic to me.” It’s a hit–and so is the fabulous corresponding video, shot by Eric Rivas (Vamp Bikers) around the legendary Stonewall and other West Village landmarks.

“As of midnight on Saturday, June 1st,” crows Musto, “the song will be on VEVO, Apple TV, Hulu + Live TV, Pluto TV, Samsung TV Plus, Roku, and more. Happy Pride, everyone! Let’s do it!”
