NEW RELEASE: ''BREAK FREE'

 

Rachelle's new power song for all the women and girls of the world.

 

by Turtlenecks feat. Miss Rachelle Jeanty

 

‘’Break free’’ is a freedom song dedicated to all the women of this world.

Break free’’ is also a salutation to all the men who support us women in our fight against one of the world’s most dangerous weapon of mass destruction: Male Ego.

‘’Break free’’ is a cry to be seen, to be heard and to be understood in the subtle and not so subtle ways that men still deny and abnegate a woman’s struggles in this male dominated world.

Special shout out to my black sisters, who, on top of that, have to deal with not being seen and recognized enough, outside the labels given to them by a society still hung up on white standards.

‘’Break free’’, an anthem, a power funk track and a strong message about breaking the invisible chains hindering Feminine Energy and Female Power to be the new leading forces in this world.
