We’ve all see an increase in female positivity all over the world. In all
industries women are screaming, “The future is female”. The music industry is no
different. Female artists are proving themselves to be bold and demanding respect
from everyone around them. Proving that a woman can love her body, have sex
appeal and handle her business all on her own.
Megan Thee Stallion, an upcoming rapper from Houston, TX is no stranger to
this with lyrics like “Come in the room and I'm giving commands. I am the captain
and he the lieutenant” in her song Big Ole Freak. Megan is following in her mother’s
footsteps as a female rapper. Unfortunately, her mother Holly Thomas, Holly-Wood
being her rap name has recently passed away. Megan has made it known that her
performances will not stop because “Holly would not want me to stop” she tweets
out to her fans. She released an EP in June 2018 called Tina Snow where you can
find a few of her most popular songs like Big Ole Freak, Freak Nasty and Make A Bag
feat. Moneybagg Yo. I suspect this is only the beginning for Megan Thee Stallion.
Some women in the music industry are on the rise due to the benefits of
social media. We all know that we are in a day and time where social media can give
anyone a platform to display something they are passionate about and develop
supporters and a following.
Artist like Doja Cat have taken full advantage of the power of social media by
making what she calls “meme music” with her song “Moo”. Doja explains that she
created this song as a joke with her fans on Instagram live. She says she wanted to
make something that allowed everyone to have a sort of break. “The music industry
is very uptight right now and people need humor,” she explains. Doja cat is from Los
Angeles California and has been making music for a couple years now. Back in 2014
Doja released an EP called Purrr! with her noted song “So High”. It seems that it
wasn’t until recently that others have realized Doja Cat actually has a nice voice and
plenty of other great songs like, Go To Town and Tia Tamera feat Rico Nasty.
I think it is safe to say that women will continue to speak out on all platforms
loudly and freely no matter big or small. It is quite invigorating for others to see
women of all shapes and sizes, being sexy and positive especially in a predominately
male industry. Both Megan Thee Stallion and Doja Cat have all of their music
streaming on all platforms for downloading.
