Zoe Wees celebrates loving yourself whilst sending a message of solidarity to girls in new single Girls Like Us

Zoe Wees is an 18-year-old German singer/songwriter who had a whirlwind 2020 after her first single Control went viral, having been listened to over 300m times worldwide and certified gold in 7 countries.

Zoe’s lyrics in her second single Girls Like Us celebrates loving yourself, whilst sending a message of solidarity to girls feeling the pressures of society and sends a middle finger to impossible beauty standards. We see this attitude in Zoe’s recent viral #girlslikeus TikTok challenge, where Zoe encouraged fans to take off their make-up whilst writing positive words about themselves on the mirror and accepting themselves as they are.

Taylor Swift – fearless (Taylor’s Version) & evermore

fearless was an album full of magic and curiosity, the bliss and devastation of youth. it was the diary of the adventures and explorations of a teenage girl who was learning tiny lessons with every new crack in the facade of the fairytale ending she’d been shown in the movies. i’m thrilled to tell you that my new version of fearless is done and will be with you soon. it’s called fearless (taylor’s version) and it includes 26 songs.”

Imelda May

Made to Love the second single from Imelda May’s upcoming album 11 Past the Hour. Imelda says: “I wrote this song with Tim Bran and Davide Rossi. It’s about love, all love which I believe is worth fighting for. Which is why I asked my friends Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu and Gina Martin to join me on backing vocals as their voices are two of the most inspiring to me! They both fight regularly for justice, equality and love. They too believe we are all made to love. Featuring my great friend Ronnie Wood on guitar. He is one of the finest examples of a person who is a lover of life!!! I hope you love the next little taste of what’s to come for my new album, 11 past the hour.” Pre-order now!

Imelda also appeared on the Graham Norton Show last weekend, alongside Adrian Dunbar! Be sure to watch her performance of Made to Love with Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu and Gina Martin!

Meet Mae Muller, speaking for a new generation of young women through her music

Hailed by GQ for her ‘witty and brutally honest lyrics’, North London singer-songwriter Mae Muller is speaking for a new generation of young women through her music. On her recent EP no one else, not even you, Mae’s frank and relatable lyrics empowered her fans whilst being intertwined with contagious pop melodies and production.

On lead track dependent, we see Mae open up about her personal reservations when it comes to falling in love and suddenly losing your independence, which she cherishes. On other songs like fan favourite Anticlimax, Mae uses more tongue in cheek lyrics: ‘Why did I ever go back? Am I crazy? I must have gone mad. All my friends say I’m better than that. ‘Cause you don’t have a job and you’re sh*t in the sack’.

Whatever the song, Mae is sure to contain her usual honesty when it comes to love, helping fans to feel like they are not alone. Mae is often seen championing other women and their work, as seen in her online magazine where she spoke to a variety of women, including sex-positive blogger Chloe Howl, breaking some of the stigmas that surround the subject.
