WOMAN’S WORLD 2.0 (feat. Miss Blanks & Jesswar)
It has been a big year for OKENYO. With the release of WOMAN’S
WORLD she has seen international buzz (Ebro Darden, Beats 1
premiere and Noisey video premiere), played festivals
including The Plot, i-D Festival and VIVID, joined the Spotify
campaign for marriage equality and partnered with the Women’s
National Basketball League. Most importantly however, she has
encouraged women everywhere to use their voices: loud and proud!
With WOMAN’S WORLD, OKENYO brought us an anthem… this time,
she brings a crew and lights the fuse on a movement. Introducing
WOMAN’S WORLD 2.0 featuring Miss Blanks and Jesswar.
A power trio to say the least, the three met at this year’s Bigsound
—after Miss Blanks and Jesswar were caught front row at
OKENYO’s showcase screaming ‘I’m a very busy woman with a
lot on my plate!’ Only a month later they were dropping verses in
studios around the country to bring you this energetic banger, just
in time for summer. With no better launch pad than Zane Lowe’s
special ARIA BEATS 1 show, WOMAN’S WORLD 2.0 had its
worldwide premiere on Tuesday, November 28th.
This sisterhood brings a new and exciting hype to the track, with
each injecting their own personal styles and charisma. On the
collab, OKENYO reveals:
“I wanted to create a new version of the song that didn’t just feature
an artist but gave the song more agency and relevance. With
the three of us it’s power in numbers, individual voices standing
Giving an electrified new meaning to the lyric, ‘Roll drum and roll
up the power of the female force’… this song will be on everyone’s
playlist this summer. Welcome to a new era of Australian rap music
