Bahamadia has a new single and it’s all kinds of awesome
Philly hip-hop icon Bahamadia has been easing her way back into the spotlight in recent years, dropping an iPhone-recorded EP as well as a digital reissue of her 2004 retrospective compilation. All of this has been building up to her fourth LP, Here, which has been in the works for a little while – but a December tour reported on Okayplayer earlier today, coupled with a fierce new single, is a promising sign.
Lest you miss the equal rights imagery in the backrgound of the single art, “We Here” is a rallying cry for women in the entertainment industry – particularly in music. Bahamadia calls out corporate record labels for their fixation on sexual imagrey over talent: “it’s a false depiction of what femininity be.” It a call to arms with a bangin’ beat, and possibly the best use of three minutes and 10 seconds of your time right now.
