Sassy new single celebrates girl power


South African singer and songwriter Cindy-Louise’s latest single Femme Fatale is about celebrating and empowering women.

“Let’s face it, women know they are in charge. Women are powerful, intelligent and talented. We are born leaders. We show this every day and we do it in heels,” said the singer.

Cindy-Louise was inspired to write a song to celebrate women.

“As the name suggests, Femme Fatale is alluring and implies that women are in control. You never know what we are planning or thinking,” she laughed.

That said, the track boasts a powerful message supported by a great tune. It has a smooth melody that will mesmerise listeners, and the lyrics are guaranteed to make you smile.

The track, written by the artist, was recorded by Frank de Jong/Hal5 Studio.

She once again collaborated with chief mixer Clinton Nicholas Watts and Andre Remesses Scheepers (arrangement and additional instrumentation) to ensure a flawless track.

In addition to Cindy-Louise’s unique sound, the single features her trademark blend of genres – in this case, commercial pop and R&B with hints of dark pop. As with her previous releases, Make It Out Here Alive and The Mask, which were well received by radio stations and listeners, Femme Fetale will be accompanied by a music video. Produced by Manda Productions and directed by Antonia Ackermans, it was shot in the Netherlands.

“In support of the song’s empowering message, I wanted the music video to showcase my sexuality and confidence as a woman. I wanted to show my body and the luxury that comes with loving and embracing who I am. Of course, no Femme Fatale story would be complete without a little danger.”

According to Cindy-Louise, the music video is a result of the combined creative efforts of everyone involved. “It was a privilege to work with a team who understands and expresses their artistry and imagination,” she said.

The artist officially launched her music career in 2019 and has since taken the industry by storm, swiftly releasing a string of singles and steadily growing her fanbase.

She also recently released her debut album, Humanity. She finds inspiration in everything around her and often uses her music to create awareness of social and/or emotional issues.

Despite being far from home, Cindy-Louise finds it important to share her music with her country (wo)men.

“It is my way of staying connected to my homeland, especially as I cannot travel home to see my family and friends. This is my way of connecting and sharing my love of music with them.”

With the release of Femme Fatale, this versatile young singer-songwriter is sure to reinforce her position as a rising star!
