‘I wanted to write a song about being a ‘BO$$ BITCH’ because the word ‘bitch’ has been used against women so many times.
In the past we’ve really used the word as a way to knock down strong & powerful women. So when I went into the studio I was inspired to write this song as a way of reclaiming the word.
A lot of women that we’ve been throwing that word at are actually demonstrating qualities that if seen in a male, we’d attribute to him being a BOSS or a leader.
For me, writing this song was a way of pushing back against that. It’s me leaning into my leadership skill sets, which are some of my greatest assets. Yet at times, I have still been made wrong for.
'This song is me saying I’m gonna rewrite the rules, I’m gonna play the game my way, and if you want to call me a bitch, call me a bitch, but call me a BOSS BITCH, cause that’s what I am.’
There is a fire that emanates from Barron S’ soul when she talks about her music.
‘Just over a year ago I stumbled across some music industry statistics & was absolutely shocked to see that STILL, just over 20% of the music industry is female, and currently ONLY 2% of music producers are female.
It slapped me across the face! We see women working in music, so I hadn’t realized that there is still so much inequality within my own industry. All of the sudden my mind flooded with memories of all the times I had been the only female on a show bill, or been the only female working in a multi-room studio space with numerous other bands.
It made me think of the time my school show was rejected because our cast was four women & the review board told us they didn’t think little boys would connect with a performance group of all women. It also made me realize just what a big deal it is that I am the 1st female DJ in the NHL.
It made me realize that I’m not just up to fighting for my music,
I’m up to fighting for equality too.’
