With her third studio album Eve, Rapsody releases a homage to the world of women of color. Each song is named after a different influential black woman. The album pays tribute to Michelle Obama as well as Oprah Winfrey and Whoopi Goldberg.
With this album, Rapsody once again proves her lyrical accuracy and takes the listener on an acoustic adventure full of poetic reveries. Seamlessly, the single tracks nestle together and result in a very coherent musical work of art.
"burdens affecting women of color are a topic of discussion in EVE"
The power of women as the source of all life has been a recurring theme in the lyrics of the North Carolina-born rapper, born in 1988. With Eve, she now brings her black culture closer to the listener and, by selecting the strong women on her album, manages to paint a powerful picture of their respective impressive life paths.
Power struggles, discrimination, sexism, and burdens affecting women of color much more than any other group of people are as much a topic of discussion an exemplary description of how they can break free of such.
"In EVE, Rapsody picks up the fight of her idols and shines a light on their own internal and external"
Rapsody picks up the fight of her idols and shines a light on their own internal and external struggles, animating and encouraging everybody who listens to this album to join the revolution.
