The Divine Feminine is probably Mac Miller’s most concise album to date. Exploring the elements of femininity of women, the world and how it applies to the opposite sex, Miller has produced an album that doesn’t try to “understand” or define what “femininity” is but allows himself to divulge how its energy is found through love, relationships, sex and more through 10 songs. Divine Feminine comes right on time for cuffing season with its love songs, groovy vibes and hypnotic production.
Mac Miller about the album concept:
The Divine Feminine, to me, is the universe. I’d hate to be cliché, like, ‘I looove the universe, maaan,’…But it’s so real. Treating the world how you’re supposed to treat a female is awesome. The more you make love to it and the less you try to fuck it, the better it all becomes for you. It’s a deeper experience with life. I’m trying to cuddle the world after sex, not keep the Uber running and dip out.
The album includes notable features from Kendrick Lamar, Anderson .Paak, Robert Glasper, CeeLo Green and new beau, Ariana Grande.
Mac Miller has grown as an artist as he learns how to let the music speak for itself. Instead of packing songs with heavy lyricism and hit or miss punchlines, Miller let’s his production carry the mood of his music and his words compliment the sounds where appropriate while the features only enhance the messages throughout the album.
