Queens, NYC-born Diana Gordon has stepped into the spotlight as a solo artist after penning three songs for Beyoncé’s Lemonade album and recording under the moniker Wynter Gordon. The artist is now telling her own story for the first time, on her own terms, through her music. Gordon has been collaborating with other artists as a songwriter for over a decade, working on songs for big names like Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Lopez, Flo Rida, and Ciara.
Diana signed to renowned record label 4AD and dropped her debut single, “The Legend Of”, a resonant depiction of her life story, in early August.
The video for the anthemic single “Woman” was directed by Cameron McCool. Diana writes of creating the video, “We shot this video on a cold day in November. Five pregnant women on the cusp of giving birth and hungry, everyone having to pee at the same time. It was also one of the calmest days I’ve ever experienced. We all wanted to capture the incredible beauty of this ancient magic called ‘creation of life.’ I also wanted to give them classic beautiful images to show their children when they were older.”
Diana continues, “This song, that is rock & roll reincarnated, that celebrates your mother, my mother, your sister, and my sister is just my way to stand up for the woman next to me and all those unseen. We need each other and the world really needs us right now.”
