Music is a powerful force in the world, especially in our communities of color where it’s had the ability to bring our people together and lift us up; let our voices be heard whether people wanted us to be heard or not. In recent years, we have seen a surge of talented Black and Brown women in the music industry, many would say we're running the game right now and to that, we would agree. These women have been unapologetically, loudly, and proudly breaking barriers and making a name for themselves in a male-dominated industry. On top of that, showing that there's room for every woman that wants to express herself, in whatever way that may be. In this blog post, we will highlight three Black and Brown women who are making a significant impact on the music scene today and shining their own individual light in a cluster of vibrant stars.

Hailing from Chattanooga, Tennessee, this mama of four has a unique style that sets her apart

from other artists. Known for her commanding voice, unapologetic lyrics, and unique beats,

She fearlessly addresses a range of topics that are often considered taboo, including motherhood, sexuality, and mental health. Her music provides a safe space for people who share similar experiences, and she is a beacon of hope for those who may be struggling with these issues. Bbymutha is a true inspiration to underdogs everywhere. In addition to her musical talents, Bbymutha also intentionally works with other underground artists such as herself that she actually has a connection with.

TiaCorine, a fun and talented rapper and singer from Atlanta, Georgia, has taken the music

industry by storm recently. Her hit single "Lotto" in 2019, which features a sound that's

“I Can’t Wait” has her name ringing bells even more. Her music, a fusion of hip-hop, pop, and

rock, translates heavily through her sound, resulting in catchy hooks and a unique flow.

TiaCorine has been praised for her ability to bring a fresh perspective to the rap game, and her

music has been well-received among fans and critics alike. Her music, in her own words, is

“sexy but still hardcore with it,” and we would agree. Think kawaii trap. With her undeniable

talent and unique style, TiaCorine is poised to make a lasting impact in the music industry for

years to come. Keep an eye out for her upcoming projects, as she continues to establish herself as a new aspect to the rap game.

Black and Brown women are dominating the music industry right now after decades of having to worry about their only being one star while the rest of the women are second best. These talented artists are using their platforms to shed light on their experiences as Black and Brown women, inspire others, and express their uniqueness. By standing so strong in their individuality, they’re also making space for a strong sense of community. More diversity and representation is much needed in this industry, and these ladies are helping to pave the way. It's exciting to witness as we believe Black and Brown women will continue to thrive and demand space and freedom.
