Over the past couple of years theres been a rise in artists producing pieces of pop that also has these wonderful tribal influences to them and I think Daniella Mason might’ve produced one of the strongest examples of this new genre through her latest single Woman Lover Powerful.
Production wise the song is on another level especially during the chorus that just makes you feel so empowered and want to hold your head high as you make your way through the world. The lyricisms immediately make a impact with the story that many women will relate to and allow them to help regain the power that they have within them. Plus Mason’s vocals always soar and make very lyric delivered feel like the final emotional blow in a prize winning fight.
“This song is a first for me in that it isn’t entirely based on my story,” Mason explains the story behind this single. “There are huge parts of myself included, of course, but it actually takes on the perspective of many different women in my life and tells a multifaceted narrative for the most multifaceted beings on the planet. I wrote this for Gigi, my husband’s great-grandmother, who lived in a time where she couldn’t open her own bank account because she didn’t have a husband or a father to open it for her. Not only did she figure out how to make her own money and provide for herself and her kids, but she eventually helped change the system in Texas. I wrote this for Jane, a friend walking through breast cancer at the time this was written, who needed the perfect song to shave her head to, to remind her of the power she had but couldn’t feel. I wrote this for my mother, who raised me to be an independent and strong woman, but didn’t get to live to see me grow into that. I wrote this for Alex, who shattered glass steeples, and Lou, who shattered glass ceilings, and Becca, who has sacrificed so much to mother her boys well. And I wrote this for myself, for breaking away and going out on my own in this industry… for every time I’m broke and tired and need my blood to pump again. I wrote this for every woman who has been made to feel less than, or has been told to pick a lane, or to sit down, or to be quiet. I hope this can serve as a reminder of our power, when days get long and hard.”
