With her sultry new single “Bodies,“ Alita explores the relationship between sensuality and the power of womanhood.
Alita explained, “I’d wanted to write a song like ‘Bodies’ for a long time, but felt like the unconscious biases in the room would affect my writing and my openness… I was worried the heart of it would get lost in translation. Eventually I realized that I had all of the instinct to explore it by myself, so I did.”
“I had been listening to a lot of hip hop, R&B – male artists that I like,” she added. “A lot of the songs were talking about women and sex; some in ways that I felt were very translucent and unimaginative. It sparked this desire in me to write a song about intimacy from a woman’s perspective.”
