Jamila Woods Shares New Video “Holy”

Chicago-based soul singer,Jamila Woods partners up with Jagjaguwar and her original home, Chicago’s Hip Hop label Closed Sessions for the proper release of her 2016 album HEAVN.  To celebrate this union she’s released a video for “Holy,” as well an unreleased alternative version produced by Dee Lilly.  It’s a declaration of self-love and self-preservation. “I wrote ‘Holy’ to remind myself that my worth is not dependent on anyone or anything outside of me.  For the video I wanted to represent self-care as a sacred act, to make ordinary daily rituals in bedrooms and bathtubs feel magical,” says Woods. The video for “Holy” was directed by Sam Bailey, a close collaborator of Woods. Jamila Woods has what AfroPunk usually calls that “Black Girl Magic.” You can’t help but fall in love with her and this track.
