Jamila Woods delivered new songs over the year with each song on the tracklist paying homage to some of her heroes. She closes out the project with “BETTY (For Boogie)”.
“The song is dedicated to Boogie McLarin, who I met through YCA, where she’s done a lot of house dance workshops with our students.
