Right now you can stream Jamila Woods entire new album HEAVN. HEAVN is Woods' debut full-length record, but the Chicago-based songstress has been everywhere the last couple years.
Highlights of the release include guest spots on Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment's "Sunday Candy," Macklemore's "White Privilege II," Kweku Collins' "Ego Killed The Romance," and multiple tracks off Chance the Rappers new mixtape, Coloring Book.
The album boasts performances from many of the rising crop of Chicago artists, including cuts with Chance the Rapper, Saba, and Donnie Trumpet. HEAVN is a powerful look at Woods' Chicago community, herself, and her peers, delving deep into her love for her home and her city, as well as her anger. It's release comes at an ideal time, and examines the current climate of one of the United States largest cities.
Woods said about the album:
"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."
