This remix is the latestoffering from SAYGRACE who released her critically-lauded debut EP last month entitled The Defining Moments of SayGrace: Girlhood, Fuckboys & Situationships. Listen to the EPHERE.
SAYGRACE says: “I am honored to have Becky G join me on this new version of my song. She’s such an accomplished performer and songwriter, who like me, also started out as a teenager in this business, and I am blown away to hear she’s a fan.*”
Adds Becky G about lending her voice to “Boys Ain’t Shit”: “I loved the original song so much and wanted to jump on it! I feel people around the world, no matter what language they speak, have related to the sentiment of the song at some point in life.”
“Boys Ain’t Shit” finds SAYGRACE flipping the script on a man who pushed her to the breaking point — but instead of vectoring in on the problems in their situationship, SAYGRACE turned the track into an anthem for all women who feel like swiping, doing emotional labor, and the interchangeable nature of modern dating is dehumanizing.
Offers SAYGRACE about her EP: “The things that I’ve gone through have made me a little rough around the edges and hard for some people to take, but it’s who I am. I’d rather be this way than be a version of myself that makes you feel more comfortable,” she says.
SAYGRACE thinks of her lyrics as a message to the younger version of herself, and a message to any woman who needs to hear it; that in a world that’s always trying to shrink you, you can be as big as you want. “As woman we’re told all your value is placed on how fuckable you are, but I refuse to accept that as reality,” she says. “What I realized as I got older is that nothing is more powerful than divine feminine energy and when woman come together and support each other the possibilities are infinite.” SAYGRACE is all about finding her place and her power as a young woman despite sometimes still feeling like a lost kid in this big world.
Her EP, The Defining Moments of SayGrace: Girlhood, Fuckboys & Situationships, is her manifesto.
