Jamila Woods has released a set of visuals for her song "Eartha," which was inspired by the late singer, actress, activist, author, and songwriter Eartha Kitt.
In the newly released video, Woods pays tribute to Kitt, with visuals directed by Fatimah Asghar and featuring appearances by Pose's Indya Moore and Langston Kerman of Insecure.
"Jamila's song 'Eartha' pays homage to Eartha Kitt's defiant spirit, and her refusal to compromise in a world that is always trying to constrict women and femmes," says Asghar. "In the production, we wanted to reference iconic images of Eartha Kitt and embody her energy to create a celebration of unapologetic femininity and sisterhood, as well as play on and challenge the ways that women have been historically portrayed in cinema by going for an old-school film vibe. As Eartha taught us, being feminine isn't just one thing—it's an incredible range. That energy permeates the video."
"Eartha" is from Woods' upcoming album Legacy! Legacy!, which is out May 10 via Jagjaguwar and features contributions from the likes of Saba, Nico Segal and others.
