Jessica 6: Down Low

After a year on the road with Hercules & Love Affair, Nomi Ruiz began working under the alias, Jessica 6, a character from the 70’s Sci Fi film ‘Logan’s Run’ who rebels against an underground society’s lethal demands. She created what would become ’See The Light’, an album combining dance and her natural R&B/Soul stylings which was released by Peacefrog Records. The album showcased Nomi’s personal approach to songwriting with heart wrenching songs such as ‘Prisoner of Love’ & ‘Not Anymore’.

Madonna would later go on to credit Jessica 6 as one of the influences for her MDNA album. The lead single ’White Horse’ received over 2 million hits on YouTube, gaining the attention of Diesel’s artistic director Nicola Formichetti. Widely known for his collaboration with Lady Gaga, Nicola featured Nomi in a provocative campaign film for Mugler Menswear titled ’Brothers Of Arcadia’ and used the songs ‘White Horse’ & ’Prisoner Of Love’ for Mugler’s runway show.

He also styled her for a feature in V Magazine, photographed by Inez & Vinoodh, where Nomi opened up about her life as a woman of transgender experience in the music industry. “I’ve never really wanted to talk about it,” says Nomi “I wasn’t denying or hiding it, but I wanted to focus on my music. I’m super proud of who I am, but I’m an artist first.”

Jessica 6: Down Low Lyrics:
let me go, let me go, let me go

aren’t you gonna watch my mouth
as I go down on you
aren’t you gonna hold my hair up
so I can stare up at you
so I can see that
I got you burning up
you’ve never felt this way
I’m going down low right down on you
and I see you’re not used to breaking rules

hidden right behind those eyes
seems like you don’t even know what you’re doing
as I go down low right down on you
seems like you don’t even know which way the wind is blowing
it blows down low now
you’re saying yes when it’s no
stop me when you say go
as I go down low right down on you
lucky you live in a world where no one ever has to know
you’re on the down low now

I feel you rushing me
rushing me, rushing me
rushing me, as you rush in me
rush in me, rush in me, rush in me
let me go, let me go, let me go
aren’t you gonna watch my mouth
as I go down on you
aren’t you gonna hold my hair up
so I can stare up at you
so I can see that, I got you burning up
you’ve never felt this way
I’m going down low right down on you
and I see you’re not used to breaking rules.
