“This is my anthem to empowerment. I want to send a message – to all women but especially to women of colour – that we can be in control, we can be leaders, we can have confidence in our minds and bodies,” Nao explained in a statement about the track. “There’s a lot of darkness in the world but also great things happening in response, many led by women and girls. For the first time in history there’s a global movement for equality, fairness and systematic change that seems to be delivering real results, both personally and politically. Me and Lianne really wanted to sing about that, support it and celebrate it.”
‘Woman’ marks the first new music from the R&B singer since her 2018 album Saturn. Lianne La Havas released her latest self-titled album earlier this year.
