Happy Monday folks! It’s that time of the month again when I highlight some of my fave artists. In honor of Women’s History/Future Month, I’ve composed a list of five of my favorite female musicians at the moment. Be sure to view the list below!
I discovered H.E.R. via soundcloud about 6 months ago, and I’ve pretty much listened to her everyday since. The identity of this artist comes with an air of mystery, very similar to The Weeknd before he was a mainstream artist. All that is known about H.E.R. is that she is a woman, and a highly talented one. Even though her identity may be a mystery, she completely exposes herself in her lyrics. H.E.R.’s music is very vulnerable, and often describes every millennial’s love life down to a tee.
#2. Ella Mai
Originally for London, Ella Mai is a r&b singer/songwriter. I credit Google Play for helping me discover her music, however Ella was discovered like many artists these days via Instagram. Ella is a true talent, and has a beautiful sultry voice.
Bibi Bourelly is singer/songwriter. She gained notoriety for being the co-writer of Rihanna’s hit single “Bxtch Betta Have My Money.” I discovered Bibi Bourelly one night while watching BET Jams, and her fiery tune “Ego” instantly became my theme song for most of 2016. Bibi music is raw, heartfelt, and honest. After listening to one of her songs you’ll feel prepared to take on anything this world may throw your way.

Dreezy is a r&b/rap artist that hails from Chicago and reps her city to the fullest. I discovered Dreezy as a rapper first, and then after researching her music later found out she was a singer as well. Even though she is equally amazing at both, I love what she is bringing to the male-dominated rap game right now. Her lyrics often reflect the importance of women power and ladies sticking together.
Kelela has been on my radar for maybe the past 3 years or so now. Her dope aesthetic screams artistry at it’s finest. Kelela’s music is the epitome of chill vibes. She is also very culturally aware of what’s going on in the world, and she is never afraid to speak out about it.
Hope you all enjoyed the list. What female musicians have you been vibing to this Women’s History/Future Month?! I would love to hear about it in the comments!
