The actor and vocalist, 14, releases her debut single ahead of 'The Lion King' hitting theaters.
At just fourteen years old, singer/actress Shahadi Wright Joseph is making a big statement for women everywhere with her debut single, “Skin I’m In,” premiering exclusively via Billboard today (July 11).
“I’m loving this skin I’m in, I’m in/ But at times it can get so hard/ I’m loving this skin I’m in, I’m in/ But I’m bigger than my scars,” she sings over an infectious beat followed by anthemic chanting. Blending a sweet mix of pop and R&B, the track feels like a fun and youthful breath of fresh air.
“‘Skin I’m In’ is an anthem to remind us all to love ourselves on our best and worst days,” Joseph tells Billboard of the track, which allows the multi-hyphenate to truly solidify the message that girls should love the skin that they’re in. “Daily challenges are unavoidable but can be taken in stride when we choose to say, 'I am enough.'"
