Poppy Ajudha Drops Powerful Pro-Choice Single ‘PLAYGOD’

“Sister stand up, for what you believe…”

Poppy Ajudha's new single 'PLAYGOD' is out now.

The London artist's jazz-tinged inflections have made her an artist to watch out for, reaching soulful expression across several different projects.

Her incoming album 'The Power In Us' broadens Poppy's sonic palette, adding daring new elements.

'PLAYGOD' moves from jazz-tinged neo-soul to rock and metal elements, with Poppy Ajudha grappling with anger.

It's a pro-choice statement, prompted by the recent Alabama abortion bill and questions the right of men to lay claim to women's bodies: “Sister stand up, for what you believe…”

She comments…

“Abortion is still illegal in many countries around the world and is shamed in even more. I wrote this song when a group of men tried to pass an anti abortion bill in the state of Alabama, America. I was angry at how in every corner of culture and society across every inch of the earth, men try to play God, again and again. But I am amazed at how humans are built with so much resistance and resilience for good when we know something is wrong and will always fight against it. This song is an act of resistance to those who try to control that which is not theirs to be in control of…”

Tune in now.
