Ella J’s new track, ‘Woman (Oh La La)’, is an endlessly-relatable feminist anthem

Words by Tom Parker

The rising singer-songwriter returns with her second single.

Ella J is on the rise. Following the release of her debut single, ‘Goodbye Player’, the emerging pop talent gained traction across the music industry, through radio airplay, on Spotify and Apple Music, while her following on Instagram and TikTok has exploded.

‘Goodbye Player’ sings of being used and taken advantage of by a past significant other – a story that holds widespread relevance for those who have been blindsided in a relationship.

On her latest track, ‘Woman (Oh La La)’, Ella J takes the bravery and resolve she showed on ‘Goodbye Player’ and funnels it through a beat-heavy feminist anthem. The song was co-written with revered local producer Rob Amoruso, also a member of the genre-transcendent Jakubi, and Liz Webber and stands a continuation of Ella J’s candid and endlessly-relatable songwriting.

“‘Woman (Oh La La)’ is about leaving your past behind and moving forward as a strong independent individual and not letting the thoughts or opinions of others change who you are or what you strive to be,” Ella J says of the track.

It’s clear that Ella J isn’t afraid to voice her concerns. With catchy pop songcraft to boot, this local singer-songwriter is certainly one to watch.
