Hadise, Turkey’s 2009 participant in Eurovision whose heart was going “Dum Tek Tek”, has released her new single “Prenses”. You don’t have to be a royal-watcher to understand that means “Princess”.
The video unfolds at a wedding ceremony, and naturally Hadise is the bride. There are no men — women rule the roost — and the lyrics have a feminist bent. She basically says she wants the same attention from her husband as she receives from her father. The main theme is hidden in this sentence of the song: “Kadinin gucunu hafife alma.” That means: “Do not underestimate the strength of women.”.
We never underestimate you, Hadise!

HADISE – “PRENSES” LYRICS
Ne zaferinden bahsediyorsun
Savasla aski karistirmissin
Cik o karanliktan, siperinden
Sen beni hep dusman varsaymissin
Sen rekabet iste
Ben buna bayiliyorum
Kadinin gucunu hafife alma
Erkeklik gururun vardir sanirim
Perisan olup da zor durumda kalma
Istersen bana ukala mukala de
El ustunde tutulmazsam, hep el kalirim
Prensesler gibiydim ben baba evinde
Ozgurlugume golgeyi hakaret sayarim!
