Jamila Woods Releases Debut Project Heavn Today

Jamila Woods released her HEAVN debut project and this is how she describes it:

“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. 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. “

Woods’ profile has grown from her appearances on Macklemore’s “White Privilege II” and Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment’s “Sunday Candy” but HEAVN is her first solo project.
