Dominique Davalos is American rock singer and bass player formerly in the band Dominatrix who’s controversial music video single “The Dominatrix Sleeps Tonight”, released in 1984 was deemed too racy for its time. The track became a pioneering force in the freestyle genre, and was noted for its use of spoken lyrics. The song’s video, directed by Beth B., featured a fur and stocking-clad Dominique, and it was the imagery in the video set against the subject matter of the song that prevented it from becoming a mainstream success. Commercial radio stations banned the single, and MTV refused to air the risque video. In 2012, the video was placed on display in the contemporary art wing of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
