A beautiful tribute to our Blk Girl Soldiers everywhere Jamila Woods releases the visuals showing us Black Girl magic. The visual is moving.. including two young girls & several women that stand right by Jamila’s side. I love that Jamila is using her voice to honor beautiful Black Women everywhere. She even honors Women that have fought for their rights through time. It’s important that we all use our voices to stand up for what we believe in and never stay silenced to injustice.. this song is nothing but empowering. She continues to impress everyone listening to her music.
Jamila is dropping her album Heavn soon and Pursuit of Dopeness is so excited to hear it. There will be an album release party June 23 @ Double Door.
Before Heavn comes out listen & watch “Blk Girl Soldier” here:
