    Empress Of - “Woman Is A Word”

    Last year, Empress Of won over the public with the impressive body of work that is her debut album Me. It’s a new year, and now she returns with more music. Her first solo single of the year is this week’s release “Woman Is A Word.” Empress Of has a special ability to layer personal lyrics over rhythms that feel like an invitation to the dance floor—creating an interesting contrast that some may not pick up on. For her latest single, she shines a light on what it’s like to be a woman in this society.

    While Empress Of expresses her emotions through her words, the rhythm manages to take you away and transport you to a mental place free of stress. “Woman Is A Word” seems like a great preview of the shape Empress Of’s new material may take.—Adrienne Black
