Jamila Woods - Legacy! Legacy!

Jamila Wood’s sophomore album, Legacy! Legacy! is a loving testimony to black artists throughout history. Each track title explicitly names a legendary artist of color, spanning disciplines, genres, and decades. For Woods, they have collectively become examples of how to unapologetically navigate life as a person of color.

The Chicago artist marries incisive political commentary with deep introspection, conjuring a richly composed R&B album about the echoes of the past and the promise of the future. While she assumes responsibility for mining sociopolitical issues in her music, she also stands on the shoulders of these figures in search of her own humanity.

This album is full of wordplay, anger, and wry humor. Each song’s subject is treated with the same reverence and warmth as Woods’ own ancestors, who are also referenced throughout.

More than just giving the song titles the names of historical black and brown icons of literature, art, and music, Jamila Woods builds a sonic and lyrical monument to the various modes of how these icons tried to push beyond the margins a country had assigned to them…” - Hanif Abdurraqib (Poet)

The album features production from return collaborator Oddcouple along with Peter Cottontale, and up and comer Chicago producer Slot-A with features from Saba, Nico Segal, theMIND, Jasminfire and Nitty Scott.
