Although Women’s History Month is over, there is no need to stop highlighting all that women contribute to the world, and more specifically, what they provide to music.
Do you need some new female artists to mellow out to? Maybe you need to feel sexually empowered through some hard-hitting beats and rhythmic raps? Or do you just want to hear something that you can turn up to? Check out these four new female artists below for your chill, hype, or even just needing to hear something dope kinda mood.
Vibe: This R&B songstress gives off the perfect combination of an old school feel and new school flow. A perfect addition to any mellow playlist, Ravyn’s take on R&B is super fresh and exciting. Her EP Crush, executive produced by The Internet’s founding member Steve Lacy, is packed full sensual tones, soft vocals, and attitude.
Must Listen to Song: Check out her song “4 Leaf Clover” featuring Steve Lacy off of her 5 track EP, Crush for those lowkey feels.
Vibe: Raunchy, real and relatable all describe Chattanooga, Tennessee native Bbymutha. While her flow is refreshing and her raps are empowering, she is able to take us through her perspective on the rap game and prove to us that she is a much-needed addition to the game. She goes hard on every track and is definitely becoming a main contender for southern rap.
Must Listen to Song: Her single “Lately” featuring Rico Nasty is a testament to her talent and her ease of rhyming.
Artist: City Girls
Vibe: If you want to turn up, City Girls are definitely what you want to pregame to. With raps that glide over trap beats, Jt and Yung Miami first made their name as a group known on the track “F*** Dat N****” off of QC’s Quality Control: Control the Streets, Vol. 1. The pair has an energy that has been missing from female rappers. While the group is relatively new in the music scene, it will be fun to hear what other club bangers the duo will bring us next.
Must Listen to Song: “Where the Bag At” is the banger you will have on repeat before, during, and after a night out.
Artist: Ama Lou
Vibe: Only 19 years old, Ama Lou has experienced life. Her music is full of heartache, anger, and self-reflection. In a blend of R&B, rap, and pop, Ama Lou is able to bring new life to the fusion of musical genres.
Must Listen to Song: The track “Wire,” off of her EP DDD, is an honest, somber and aggressive telling of her experience with love.
