Justice – Woman

It’s been five years since Justice dropped an album but boy was the wait worth it. The album includes the singles ‘Randy’ and ‘Safe and Sound’ and the album is already getting rave reviews. “’Woman’ is a very powerful, beautiful word,” Xavier de Rosnay explained about the album title. “If we’re honest with ourselves, much of what we do is mostly to please women or make them proud of us. It’s a tribute to the women in our lives; mothers, daughters, lovers, friends, collaborators.” This is the perfect album to heat up your weekend!
