Soul singer Goapele makes a return with her new single “Power,” produced by Cornelio Austin.
The empowering song is lifted from Goapele’s EP, Dreamseeker, which releases on May 19 on EMPIRE/SKYBLAZE.
On the track, Goapele sings, “As bright as the sun (Power) / Just be who you are (Free).”
In an Instagram post, Goapele revealed her daughter inspired “Power.” My daughter is my daily reminder of this,” she said, before offering words of encouragement, Don’t let anyone dim your light.”
On Dreamseeker, Goapele will return to the adventurousness that is reminiscent of her early material.
“I’m a woman, but I’m also a whole person who won’t be confined to any one box,” Goapele said in a press release. Nobody is just one thing. Within any race, within any genre, and within any neighborhood, there’s so much diversity. As artists and especially as women of color, we have to be proud of that. I’m coming from an honest place and expressing the different parts of myself that make me whole.”
Dreamseeker follows Goapele’s 2014 album, Strong As Glass.
