Listen: Vera Blue’s “Lady Powers” featuring Kodie Shane

Vera Blue

Vera Blue’s new single, “Lady Powers” is completely addictive. The 24-year-old singer and songwriter debuted the new single in April, featuring hip-hop prodigy Kodie Shane, and the track has already earned 2.5 million streams on Spotify, while her album Perennial has reached 56 million streams.

Hailing from Sydney, Australia, Vera Blue’s new track is electric, quick, and her vocals soar over the danceable beat before Kodie Shane’s fantastic break hits at the two minute mark. The single also has a great theme.

To craft the single, Vera worked with “a fierce and all-female powerhouse crew of producers,” including Maya Jane Coles and TOKiMONSTA.

“This song,” Vera said, “is all about not having to use your sexuality to be respected as a woman. It’s hard sometimes, especially when you feel vulnerable. As women, we all have lady powers, but we shouldn’t have to use them to feel wanted or respected. We need to respect ourselves. In doing that, we have true lady powers other than just our bodies.”

“Feminism to me, is nothing more and nothing less than the belief in equality for women,” Kodie Shane said. “I personally feel a responsibility to demonstrate to that we girls have the power to not only gain equality for women but all sectors of society. I’m super excited to be a part of Vera Blue’s ‘Lady Powers’ because it hits home with me. I feel that so many girls in my generation don’t quite understand their power and I wake up every day hoping to shed light on how far Being You and using your God-given power can take you!”

Ranked at No. 4 on Australian radio’s “Most Played” tracks, Vera has even seen support from the one and only Sir Elton John.
