Queen Ifrica’s powerful “Black Woman”
Featured on her album “Climb”, Queen Ifrica’s “Black Woman” is a lyrically and musically powerful anthem that paints the message of black women protecting themselves and uplifting each other. The single will be released in April and will be preceded by music video which will be filmed in Jamaica by director Jason Panton (Raging Fyah’s “Milk And Honey”, Ikaya’s “Leave You Alone”) and will feature young black models portraying women from history to modern day. The styling will represent different representations of female virtuosity and some familiar faces will be in the video to further enhance the message.
“My reason for doing “Black Woman”, is the mere fact that women today are stepping up and becoming more stronger in themselves. Whenever we see that black women are behind, it is because she is left behind,” said Queen Ifrica on the meaning of the song and video. Now is the time for the black woman to realize her purpose, her worth and what she is about in this space.” says Queen Ifrica,
She continues, “International Women’s Day to me, is a day to reflect on what it means to be woman, to be mother, to be sister, to be auntie, to be friend. Its that place you go to that comforts you when life gets at its worst. Its a day to remember, to reflect and to acknowledge that we sisters carry a lot and we do it with grace.”
While waiting for the official video to drop at the end of March, closing out Women’s History Month, it’s already worthwhile seeing Queen Ifrica perform “Black Woman” live at Tuff Gong studios, Jamaica 2017.
