Chicago artist and poet Jamila Woods is back with a new song, ‘Boundaries’. Marking her first new music since 2020’s ‘SULA (Paperback)’, the track was recorded at Complex Studios in LA and produced by BLVK. Listen to it below.
“‘Boundaries’ is a song about the negotiation between private and shared space in a new relationship, the risk involved in letting someone get close enough to see your rough edges,” Woods explained in a press statement. “I think a lot about the Prentice Hemphill quote, ‘Boundaries are the distance at which I can love you and me simultaneously.’ The song is about learning the difference between erecting boundaries out of fear versus out of love.”
Although she didn’t release any solo music last year, Woods collaborated with oddCouple on the song ‘Reflections’ and joined Miloe and Vagabon on ‘Winona’. Her last album was 2019’s LEGACY! LEGACY!.
