Mabel, Shygirl Combine For ‘Look At My Body (Pt. II)’

They're embracing the power of the divine feminine...

Mabel and Shygirl link-up on new single ‘Look At My Body (Pt. II)’.

Mabel recently cleared the decks with ‘Vitamins’, a soulful pop sizzler that saw her entering a new era. This next single revels with the power of the divine feminine, and it finds the singer flipping the male gaze to take control of her radiant energy.

The sultry production contains a 00s R&B gloss reminiscent of those Aaliyah bops, while Mabel is joined by dynamic club force Shygirl. The two explode on record together, pushing back against expectations while having the time of their lives.

Mabel comments…

This record is about questioning the male gaze and the power of the divine feminine. I’ve often felt judged by my appearance, and I’ve let comments get the better of me. Now, I’m at a stage in my life where I’m celebrating my body without letting it define me. I wanted to let anyone who’s ever underestimated me or judged the book by its cover know that I’m ok with them doing that now because I know who I am.

Collaborating with Shygirl is something I’ve wanted to do for a really long time as I’m a big fan of her music and everything fell into place with this record. She totally understood everything I wanted it to be and she’s made the song so special. She’s a superstar.

Shygirl is radiant on record, and she adds:

Had such a cute time working with Mabel on this one – an easy and natural fit, just love hanging out with her. A song for those who love watching.

The video finds Mabel and Shygirl echoing femme cultural moments, ranging from Eve and the forbidden fruit to the present day. Directed by David Wilson, it’s a painting come to life – tune in now.
