Rae Leviné fights for the man she loves on ‘Women’s Talk’

Hot on the heels of tack­ling one of society’s most dif­fi­cult issues with a new anti-gun poem, south Lon­don word­smith Rae Lev­iné is back – and this time she’s direct­ed her ener­gies to a pur­suit that many will relate to: hold­ing on to her man.

‘Women’s Talk’ shows off a com­plete­ly dif­fer­ent side to Lev­iné: sassy and in con­trol every step of the way, she’s ready to smug out any com­pe­ti­tion for her boo.

Mxl­low­beats pro­duced the sen­su­al groove, and the way Lev­iné takes to it is stun­ning – words tum­ble from her lips with the quick­ness and con­fi­dence of Neneh Cher­ry or Ter­ri Walk­er.

Give ‘Women’s Talk’ a lis­ten below.

She was nom­i­nat­ed for a MOBO UnSung award in 2016, and you only have to lis­ten to a track such as this – which you could com­fort­ably file next to Brandy’s ‘The Boy is Mine’ or ‘Don’t Mess with My Man’ by Lucy Pearl – to imag­ine Lev­iné tak­ing to more “con­ven­tion­al” singing or rap­ping like a duck to water.

Lev­iné is per­form­ing at the Hide­away Jazz Club, Lon­don, on June 1. Details can be found here.

Catch Lev­iné on Twit­ter and Insta­gram. Beck­ys with the good hair, beware.
