Their bold debut song, “Independent Woman,” is a celebration of women’s empowerment and freedom, going against societal expectations. The lyrics touch on the themes of self-determination and resilience, encouraging women to live life on their own terms, unbothered by others’ opinions or judgments.

It’s a feeling of euphoria

It’s a feeling of euphoria

Independent woman

Don’t let anyone stop you

In the song, the girls sing about breaking free from a monotonous life filled with judgmental eyes and express a strong desire for independence. The chorus and the rest of the song reinforce this message of empowerment and ambition, with lines that encourage living life to the fullest and reaching for one’s dreams.

It’s a feeling of euphoria

It’s a feeling of euphoria

Independent woman

Nobody can stop me now
