Aluna has announced her debut solo album.
News of ‘Renaissance’ – due on 28th August – follows on from a smattering of singles, and arrives with her Princess Nokia and Jada Kingdom collab, ‘Get Paid’.
“[It’s] an aspirational celebration about black women and women of color getting paid, in opposition of the reality that we are consistently undervalued for our work,” she says of the track.
“On the other hand, this is a song about believing we deserve to get paid because as society keeps telling us we are worthless, we internalize that notion, which is almost more damaging because it stops us from advocating for ourselves.”
The record’s full tracklisting reads:
01 I’ve Been Starting To Love All The Things I Hate
02 Warrior (feat. SG Lewis)
05 Don’t Hit My Line
06 Aluna, Princess Nokia & Jada Kingdom – Get Paid
07 Aluna, KAYTRANADA – The Recipe (feat. Rema)
08 Body Pump
09 Ain’t My Business
10 Off Guard
11 Back Up
