Jamila Woods is a Chicago singer-songwriter also known for her collaboration with Chance the Rapper and Macklemore. Three years after debut full-length Heavn, she announced the release of a new album. LEGACY! LEGACY! is out on May 10th via Jagjaguwar. It features Nico Segal, Boogie, and many more. We already shared “Zora”; “EARTHA” is the new excerpt. Watch the official video which was directed by Fatimah Asghar (Jamila’s best friend/poet/ Brown Girls series creator) and executive produced by Vincent Martell of VAM STUDIO; it features Indya Moore of the FX show Pose, Langston Kerman of HBO’s Insecure along with spoken word artist Safia Elhillo. On the inspiration for the video Asghar explains:

“Jamila’s song EARTHA pays homage to Eartha Kitt’s defiant spirit, and her refusal to compromise in a world that is always trying to constrict women and femmes. In the production, we wanted to reference iconic images of Eartha Kitt and embody her energy to create a celebration of unapologetic femininity and sisterhood, as well as play on and challenge the ways that women have been historically portrayed in cinema by going for an old-school film vibe. As Eartha taught us, being feminine isn’t just one thing– it’s an incredible range. That energy permeates the video.”
