“ I think this is a great time for us as Black women. So many of us are so powerful. … This is the time to just be loud about it,” Norwood said. “Be loud about your Blackness, be loud about your beauty, be loud about your confidence, your humility, your stand, your opinions, your facts. They matter. And even when it didn’t seem like they mattered, they matter.”

I still haven't gotten fully in

The ticking sound throughout the song drives me crazy and the processing on her vocals makes everything sound flat to me

I was super hype for this one but I think it's another that would have benefitted from me not hearing all the teasers (mental note for next go round, lol). All those runs and belts she was doing in the snippets ended up getting scrapped, so I can't help but feel the final product is a little empty (though that may have been her intention). That and the pretty heavy autotune throughout make it less enjoyable. But to each their own. Happy people are getting in though, and I think this song is really doing work in terms of introducing her unique sound to a younger generation.
