Artists Lily Moore and Zuzu discuss highs and lows of womanhood in Four Nine x Virgin EMI Records video
March 05, 2020
Popular female artists, Lily Moore and Zuzu, will highlight the highs and lows of womanhood in support for International Women’s Day (IWD) via a fabulous new video produced by online female-first community Four Nine and Virgin EMI Records.
Through the voices of two female artists - Lily Moore and Zuzu - the video explores the everyday inequalities that many women continue to face today and the support and inspiration that female friendships can bring.
Created to support IWD’s #EachforEqual campaign, the video puts a spin on the classic ‘Have you Ever’ game and sees Lily and ZUZU react to a series of statements about womanhood; from “have you ever been mansplained to?” and “have you ever had a good response to being catcalled?” to “have you ever wished you had more power to change something?”
Through the music artists’ honest responses to the statements presented, the video prompts young female viewers to question the inequality they experience and remind them of the inspiration and support that comes from women championing women.
Lily Moore - from busker to brilliant
Lily Moore is a London based singer/songwriter, she has come a long way from her beginnings busking on the streets of Brighton to playing across Europe and the UK. Following her critically acclaimed ‘I Will Never Be’ EP, Lily’s first full length release is the stunning ‘More Moore’ mixtape, a dazzling document of the past few years of her life, packed full of break-ups, make-ups and ruined breakfasts.
ZUZU - pushing boundaries with a feisty spirit
ZUZU is the definition of a millennial artist; a visibly confident front person, songwriter, producer, director, actor and comic book illustrator; starring and orchestrating all her videos, recording a considerable amount of her music at her home studio in Liverpool to collecting vintage guitars. Her boundary pushing mentality feeds into the psyche of the city which has long been imbued with a spirit of fierce independence, unwavering loyalty and creative genius.
Everyone can play a part in forging the gender agenda
Chief Content and Brand Officer at Jungle Creations, Melissa Chapman, commented: “We’re proud to support International Women’s Day for another year and use Jungle Creations’ resources to raise awareness of the gender inequality that still exists today.”
Glenda Slingsby, Partnerships Director for International Women’s Day said: “Noticing and calling out inequalities is key and everyone can choose to do this. We can all be #EachforEqual, not only on International Women's Day, but every day.”
The video runs on Four Nine’s social channels - including its sister brand Four Nine Looks - and will be shared to other social communities managed by Four Nine’s parent company Jungle Creations, including VT.
