Foxy Shazam and the Church of Big Black Ass

“I Like It” is the riotous first single from Ohio glam-rockers Foxy Shazam‘s third LP, The Church of Rock and Roll, and the newly released video harnesses all of Foxy’s over-the-top bravado. While the album as a whole was significantly less original than Foxy’s previous efforts, choosing to forgo some of their more spastic elements in favor of an arena rock sound, this track stood out for its bold, fun hook: “That’s the biggest black ass I’ve ever seen and I like it, I like it.” That repeated line drives the song and the video, a wild party scene talking place in an old, decrepit church. Awkwardly be-freckled lead vocalist Eric Nally leads the Foxy crew with spectacular dance moves and an impressive falsetto, backed by Foxy’s equally ecstatic musicians providing the horn and piano-filled backdrop for Nally’s whimsically sexual lyricism. The crowd is filled with dancing fans dressed in fabulous mascarade costumes and, of course, the focal point of the song: plenty of big, black ass. This video is worth a watch for anyone looking for a fun, obnoxious throwback to the days of Queen and David Bowie.
