Afropop singer/songwriter Adanna Duru releases a brand new video, “if i was a boy 😉” today. Produced by Khris Riddick Tynes (“Snooze” by SZA) & Rob Bisel (produced “Kill Bill” by SZA), the humorous yet biting lyrics describe how men let their women down and never have to answer for their bad behavior. The producers encouraged her to lean into her quirky/fun online persona on this track. Inspired by Beyonce’s “If I Were a Boy” and Ciara’s “Like a Boy,” Adanna wanted to create a song about what women commonly go through in relationships.
About the single, Adanna says, “This song is about letting out all those feelings of being mistreated or being taken for granted by men in my life. I wanted to make a song that was super fun and spoke to feelings that all women go through in relationships (wanting to treat men the way they treat us).”
