Swedish artist & songwriter Anna-Li has released her new single “Good Guy”, pumping catchy R&B/POP energy.
The English sung lyrics are a ‘tongue-in-cheek’ poke at masculinity, with a solid hook and slick modern production. Despite the strong (and fitting) language restricting international airplay, we firmly expect to hear this head-nodding groove broadcasting from Scandinavian radio stations.
“Good Guy” was written by Anna-Li (Matilda Sjöberg), Alva Lejonclou, Christopher Holmberg and Axel Jonson during a songwriting camp at Songwriting Academy of Sweden.
Describing the song Anna-Li’s says:
“Good Guy is about men calling themselves a “good guy” but acting the complete opposite. Guys who claim to be pro-equality but act contradictorily, they speak loudly about injustice but hassle girls about sending nudes, are way too pushy and get mad when you distance yourself from them.”
Empowering women in music is the sound, image and message all young girls need to hear. And especially young boys too.
