Grammy Award-winning R&B songstress Chrisette Michele has dropped a new female-empowerment single “Strong Black Woman” which pays tribute to black women.
The song touches on their flaws and imperfections but also their great triumphs.
On the song, Chrisette states, “How do we not know by now what a strong black woman is? Why do we still have a difficult time recognizing greatness when we see it? Who’s oblivious to the greatness of Michelle Obama, Roxane Gay, Issa Rae, Maxine Waters and countless others? I hate that I have to shout so loud to drill the point home, but the truth is that if we don’t lift each other up, nobody else will.”
“Strong Black Woman” is the lead single from Chrisette’s upcoming sixth album Out of Control due April 13, 2018 as the follow-up to Milestone via her own label Rich Hipster.
