VANCOUVER POP ARTIST JESSIA PENS REBELLIOUS BODY POSITIVITY ANTHEM WITH HER NEW SONG “I’M NOT PRETTY”
Receives Praise From Supermodel, Body Activist & Public Figure Ashley Graham On Instagram – “LOVE THIS!”
Emerging pop artist, JESSIA sparked an enthusiastic reaction on social media earlier this week when she shared a snippet of a song idea inspired by conversations about female empowerment and body image. From concept to completion in just 72 hours, “I’m not Pretty” OUT NOW.
“I’m not Pretty,” showcases JESSIA’s super-soulful voice and wildly relatable lyrics, inspiring many with its affirming message of self-acceptance, including supermodel, body activist and public figure Ashley Graham who posted “LOVE THIS!” after seeing a video clip of the song’s creation.
“Every other song says I’m beautiful
But what if I don’t feel like I’m beautiful?
I wish my body image didn’t say
That I should be another kind of way
Maybe I’m not pretty
Maybe I’m just fun
Cause I’ve got a belly
And I’ve got a bum
But I can’t be jelly of all the other ones
So, I’m falling in love with my rum bum bum bum”
“The response to “I’m not Pretty” has been overwhelming to say the least!” shares JESSIA. “I am so touched that we have started 2021 off with this body positivity movement. The inspiration for this song actually started from a TikTok trend. I heard a quote saying, ‘I’ve never seen two pretty best friends’ and it got me thinking that all of my friends are gorgeous so maybe I’m not the pretty one. Maybe I am just the fun one? I was feeling frustrated and bitter one day, so I wrote this hook to get me through. People related to it and the positivity started rapidly spreading and then having Elijah Woods onboard to produce and be a part of it, made it all the more special. We are both so proud of what has come out of this song and it’s just the beginning!”
