We say

Premiered by DJ Target on 1Xtra on Monday, this sublime dose of sultry, jazz-flecked R&B is from Algerian-born, Tottenham raised artist Miraa May. After a successful 2019, which saw her release her Dark EP, co-write Jorja Smith’s Top 10 hit Be Honest and sell-out two headline shows in London, as well as perform at Glastonbury and Reading & Leeds festivals, it’s her first track of 2020 and marks the start of a new chapter in her life as she embarks on the journey of motherhood. Clocking in at just less than three minutes, Woman Like Me is a gloriously slinky affair with frank lyrics and hypnotic sax melodies to entice the listener closer. Alongside writing her music, the in-demand songwriter has recently worked with Nafe Smalls on the mixtape track Bad For Me, filmed a new documentary by the Face magazine called Voices of Jamaica and is now releasing a mini-series of studio sessions on her YouTube channel titled ‘Miraa & Friends’, which features Jevon, Cosima, Sam Tompkins, Big Zuu, Samm Henshaw, and Moss Kena. With tastemaker support from the likes of Radio 1, 1Xtra, Beats, Spotify, and many more, this busy, creative and hands-on artist is starting her 2020 with an absolute gem.
