KIRBY hits us with a dose of magical and medicinal funk-fusion via her new single “Superpower.” A deep groove sets the tone as Kirby cuts fluidly through a picture-perfect instrumental, swaying with style, grace, and endless feel. Joined by D Smoke on the track – a recent Grammy nominee and rising hip-hop star – he displays an ultra-smooth lyrical design and creative and brilliant flow. KIRBY & D SMOKE speak to the beauty, strength and richness of African American culture. This is a song as important as any to come out in 2020. Check it out below…

As KIRBY explains about the song: “I wonder who I would be had I grown up believing that being black is a Superpower. Believing instead of capes we were given skin that’s so varied and complex; we can be dark as the night or bright as the sun. This song is for the melaninated superheroes who walk this earth. Your skin is not your burden, your skin is not your curse, your skin is not your choice, BUT it is your Superpower.”
