Check Out Jamila Woods’ New Album: ‘HEAVN’ (ListenUp)
Chicago poet, activist and R&B singer Jamila Woods has just dropped a 13-track album. HEAVN is Woods’ debut album shared exclusively through Soundcloud. HEAVN features big names in the Chicago music industry such as Chance the Rapper, Noname, Saba, Donnie Trumpet and more.
“HEAVN is about black girlhood, about Chicago, about the people we miss who have gone on to prepare a place for us somewhere else, about the city/world we aspire to live in,” Woods said in a press release. “I hope this album encourages listeners to love themselves and love each other. For black and brown people, caring for ourselves and each other is not a neutral act. It is a necessary and radical part of the struggle to create a more just society. Our healing and survival are essential to the fight.”
