Jamila Woods returns with a brand new single titled “Giovanni.”
Giovanni’ is a song about owning & celebrating all the parts of myself,” says the Chicago-bred songstress in a press release. “It’s about legacy and lineage, and how the love & strength of the people who made me makes me feel invincible.
Inspired by poet and activist Nikki Giovanni, specifically the famed poem ‘Ego tripping (there may be a reason why), Jamila Woods has returned to gift us with more art in the form of her latest “Giovanni” single.
Still using her music to underscore the sanctity of womanhood, Jamila delivers on an accompaying video with “Giovanni” as she co-directs alongside Vincent Martell, opening up with word of wisdom from her grandmother, also known as Gramma J and ending with words from Jamila’s own mother.
