This certified club banger is the third single from her upcoming album titled ‘SHE’ scheduled for March 2018.

It’s about building something with your girls for yourselves and for future generations. It’s about us women building our financial security together and manifesting big dreams!” The single’s audio comes alongside a dance video that features Muthoni Drummer Queens dance crew in Switzerland. In Muthoni’s words: “I really want everyone to listen to the song as they dance to it. I really want everyone to catch the uplifting vibes that we put into the track and to joyfully celebrate themselves and the women in their life.”
