Artist to look out for : Jamilia Woods

So by now Solange is a staple in your playlist and you are trying to think of new ways to switch it up. Well I am here to give you the scoop for the weekend.

If you haven’t already heard of Jamilia Woods here is a quick background to the future powerhouse.  She is widely known for her collaborative works with Chance the Rapper on the hit song “Sunday Candy” from the album Surf as well as “Blessings” from Coloring Book. Woods is also featured on the Macklemore & Ryan Lewis song “White Privilege II”. In January 2016, Woods signed to Chicago’s independent hip-hop label, Closed Sessions.

Her album HEAVN is oozing with black girl magic with lyrics like:

See she’s telepathic
Call it black girl magic
Yeah she scares the gov’ment
Deja Vu of Tubman

We go missing by the hundreds
Ain’t nobody checkin for us
Ain’t nobody checkin for us

My personal favorite being:

Woke up this morning with my mind set on loving me
With my mind set on loving me
Woke up this morning with my mind set on loving me
With my mind set on loving me
I’m not lonely, I’m alone
And I’m holy by my own
I’m not lonely, I’m alone
And I’m holy by my own

Decide for yourself if she should be added to the current mix.
