Jessica Wilde is proving to be a songwriter of true grit. Able to chart the state of her own self-worth, experience, and growth through her inimitable UK R’n’B style, on new single ‘Body’, Jessica is done with hiding, playing nice and getting suckered in time after time by – excuse my French ‘F*ckboys’ – and ‘Wastemen’, having to conform to peer pressure and the role a dominant masculine society expects of her.
As Jessica bares testimony on her new single, she sweetly tells how a recent partner. Her soulful refrain, “If all you want is my body, then imma find somebody, who wants no body but me” will resonate for many women.
Wilde further explains, ‘I had this relationship that was a real wake up call. It hit me… why did I keep attracting these guys who only seemed to care how my body could please them? Why don’t I celebrate my body instead of looking to them to validate me? So, I made a vow to myself that I would love ME first, this song is that vow!’.
Out now on download and streaming sites, ‘Body’ will form part of the South Londoner’s yet untitled album/mixtape due later this year.
Check out the accompanied video, featuring the sharp-witted Wilde diverting all the attention she gave to disrespecting boys back to herself in a sumptuous, self-love ceremony.
