Atlanta continues to thrive as being the hub for music and entertainment. People from all walks of life are making Atlanta their home in hopes of making a name for themselves in the music industry. R&B Singer Shemida J is no exception.

 

The songstress’ new single, “Kinky” is also on the soundtrack for the film Kinky premiered in theaters Oct.12. Cast members of the film include the legendary Vivica A. Fox, Dawn Richard, Darrin Henson, and more.

 

 

While it may be taboo for women to be open about their sexual desires, Shemida J doesn’t shy away from the topic. The musician embraces her body and pushes for more women to be comfortable in their skin and confident enough to discuss their sexuality as men do.

 

During an exclusive interview with CeeSoDope, Shemida J expresses her thoughts on being a woman opened about her sexuality, how her single “Kinky” made is on the soundtrack of the Kinky film, her EP She, and more.

 

Check it out below:

 

1) How did your song “Kinky” make it on the soundtrack of the movie?

My team was approached with the project idea. One of the producers that were putting the soundtrack together thought it would be cool for me to submit some material. I went ahead and wrote something because I got a sneak peek of the trailer.

 

 

2) Do you feel women in the music industry are breaking barriers for women to be more open about their sexual desires?

Beyoncé, for one. I think as a married woman with children and still being able to express herself on a large platform is amazing. You would think that person needs to be more conservative and reserved, but the truth is we’re all sexual beings to a degree. I think it’s awesome to embrace it versus shaming it.

 

3) Do you feel like it’s still a significant stigma on women who express their sexuality in today’s society?

I think there’s a huge stigma. I’ve heard things such as the word “Instagram model” is bad. But if you feel good, I think you should have all the freedom to express it without being shamed. I think the more confident you get within your body, it okay to show it.

 

4) Why do you think there’s a double standard in society?

It’s a double standard because it’s a man’s world. A lot of men are definitely in positions of power. A man wants a woman that is a lady in the street and freak in the bed. I think women have done amazing jobs pushing through and making sure we’re heard and not put in this little corner.

 

5) What can fans expect from your EP She that’s being released in 2019?

I’m bringing transparency. I want to express the most transparent version of myself from relationships to sexuality and going for what it is that I want. So definitely expect transparency and some really good music.

 

6) How long have you been making music and what inspires you?

I’ve always been in the choir from elementary school, and so that has always been a part of me. Music inspires me because it’s the best way for me to communicate myself.

 

7) Who would you like to work within the music industry?

Everyone who’s doing there thing right now (laughs). I would love to work with Ella Mai, H.E.R., and the songwriter Dream.

 

8) Where do you want your music career to be in the next three to five years?

I want to hear myself all over the radio and do a tour.
