As her forthcoming EP “Sis, He Wasn’t the One”. arrives October 1st, singer/songwriter Kirby is back with her new single “Coconut Oil.” The electrifying “Coconut Oil” is a funk-infused shot to the veins, an empowering and joyous celebration of black womanhood, with KIRBY’s vocals gliding across the elastic bassline and muscular groove. Breathtaking and exhilarating in equal measure, it is an utterly addictive future-soul classic.
KIRBY delves into the meaning behind the song: “If black girl magic needed a national anthem I would want it to be ‘Coconut Oil’. When black women put this song on I want them to feel like I’m their own personal hype woman! Every lyric is an extension of ‘YASSSS SISS’ energy. These aren’t just lyrics to me, these are affirmations! Celebrating what it means to be black and a woman.”
“Coconut Oil” follows the recently released “Break Her Heart For Me” and “Boyz II Men”, and further showcases the breadth and scope across the 10 tracks on the forthcoming “Sis, He Wasn’t the One” EP, which also features a collaboration with BJ The Chicago Kid.
