Aluna Francis of AlunaGeorge has announced her solo debut album Renaissance with the release of her new Princess Nokia and Jada Kingdom collaboration, “Get Paid.”
According to a statement by Francis, “Get Paid” “is an aspirational celebration about Black women and women of color getting paid, in opposition of the reality that we are consistently undervalued for our work. On the other hand, this is a song about believing we deserve to get paid because as society keeps telling us we are worthless, we internalize that notion, which is almost more damaging because it stops us from advocating for ourselves.”
The track joins earlier singles “Warrior” with SG Lewis and “Body Pump,” which will also appear on Renaissance. Kaytranada and Rema will also feature on the 14-track LP. “I wrote this album as a fix for any type of dancing deficiencies you may have in your life,” Francis wrote in a light-hearted message on Instagram. Renaissance comes two years after the last AlunaGeorge release, the Champagne Eyes EP.
Renaissance will arrive on August 28 via Mad Decent. Watch the colorful lyric video for “Get Paid” below:
