Canadian singer-songwriter, VVAVES, has released new single ‘Boys Like You’ ft. Iggy Azalea today. The pair have joined forces on this empowering pop-tune that is all about women taking a stand and showing their strength.
With an exuberant energy, punchy guitar hooks and electronic textures, the new single is the latest release since previous 2018 single ‘Alive’. ‘Boys Like You’ is a welcomed return from a musician who continues to push boundaries in the modern pop scene.
Inspired by classical music and jazz when growing up, Emma Rosen AKA VVAVES, quickly learned guitar and piano. From then onwards, VVAVES has made a name for herself thanks to the her unique brand of electronica-tinged pop.
Speaking more about the meaning behind the song, VVAVES said:
“I want to set a good example for all the females listening. I want them to feel empowered through the lyrics and the production, I want women to have fun and celebrate themselves. It’s not “Fuck men” or “Fuck the industry,” it’s “Fuck letting yourself get treated as less than you are. It’s a reminder that we have the power and responsibility to speak up.”
