“Woman” is produced by Loxe, who co-produced four songs on Nao’s previous album. It is mixed by Manon Grandjean, who worked with Dave on the album “Psychodrama” and Stormzy‘s album titled “Heavy is the Head.”
Listening to this song, it’s pretty easy to see Nao’s confidence and stranglehold on her own power. Nobody can take that away from her, and she said she considers this song her anthem to empowerment.
“I want to send a message – to all women but especially to women of colour – that we can be in control, we can be leaders, we can have confidence in our minds and bodies,” Nao said. “There’s a lot of darkness in the world but also great things happening in response, many led by women and girls. For the first time in history there’s a global movement for equality, fairness and systematic change that seems to be delivering real results, both personally and politically. Me and Lianne really wanted to sing about that, support it and celebrate it.”
