In an era of social injustice and the rise of racism, Nigerian-American R&B/Soul artist Teimi (pronounced tay-me) wants to make sure the “Black Woman” isn’t misrepresented.
On her new musical offering, the Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter unearths the conscious emotions in listeners with compelling and thought-provoking lyrics about the “forgotten” woman, whom as often left to pick up the pieces by herself.
“Why you hate me so much when all I ever did was be black, be born, be woman,” Teimi sings.
As for the single, she affirms that it’s “for the girls who often feel forgotten.”
“Black Woman” will appear on Teimi’s forthcoming EP, which was written after the killing of Philando Castile. The project is due early 2017.
