Jamila Woods Stands Out. She Powerfully Blames Ego For Killing Romance (Audio)

Jamila Woods has been making noise for years. The Chicago, Illinois singer (and poet/writer) has been working with the likes of Donnie Trumpet & Social Experiment as well as Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. Now, the Closed Sessions artist helps light a path for her label-mate Kweku Collins in “Ego Killed Romance.”

Like Chi City neighbor BJ The Chicago Kid and his Kendrick Lamar-assisted single “The New Cupid,” this song tackles the things that are blocking great intimate relationships from romance. Jamila’s vocals are careful, dynamic, and soaring on the beat. This is music that transcends Hip-Hop.


When Kweku comes back in the song with a peppy verse, he nails it with creativity, originality, and soul. This song will live on his upcoming Nat Love LP (April 6).
