Queen Ifrica Pays Homage To Nina Simone with 'Four Women' Cover - Produced by Stephen Marley

In Tribute to the legendary, iconic Nina Simone; Queen Ifrica pays homage with a Reggae cover of the marquee track Four Women (originally recorded in 1965, released in April 1966). In a time where respect of female equality, diversity, culture, history, ethnicity is needed more than ever in the forefront of the global consciousness; this Stephen Marley produced take on Nina Simone's powerful declaration describing Four Women is surely relevant. The song was released (Ghetto Youths International) on Monday April 26th 2021; the anniversary of the 1969 recording of Nina's Live from Berkley album. The video for the song was premiered today. Watch it below!

Queen Ifrica explained in a press release: “I was able to channel Nina Simone because I am connected to the four women mentioned throughout the song. It was very exciting working with people I am familiar with in the form of the band, and young vibrant people such as the directors of the video Extreme Arts. Stephen Marley and his label Ghetto Youths made the process so easy." 

LYRICS:
My skin is black
My arms are long
My hair is woolly
My back is strong
Strong enough to take the pain Inflicted again and again
What do they call me?
My name is Aunt Sarah
My name is Aunt Sarah, Aunt Sarah My skin is yellow
My hair is long
Between two worlds
I do belong
My daddy was rich and white Forced my Mama late one night What do they call me?
My name is Afronia
My name is Afronia
My skin is tan
My hair is fine
My hips invite you
My mouth like wine
Whose little girl am I?
Anyone who has money to buy What do they call me?
My name is Sweet Thing
I say my name is Sweet Thing
My name is Sweet Thing
My skin is brown
My manner is tough
I'll kill the first fool I see
O’ my life has been rough
I'm awfully bitter these days 'Cause my parents were slaves What do they call me?

My name is Peaches
I say my name is Peaches My name is Peaches
Ye...
