‘Bodies’ is a departure from her most recent singles ‘Human Nature’ and ‘Too Close’ – which delved into the toxicity of unhealthy romantic behavior and landed on Spotify’s official ‘Fresh: Pop’ and TIDAL’s Rising: Pop – and instead tackles the topic of sex from a strong female perspective. After realizing her male collaborators were lacking the feminine energy the song required, ALITA chose to go at the writing process alone.
ALITA explained: “I’m almost always the only woman in the room when I’m writing music. I love and value my male collaborators, but there’s a different energy and camaraderie that comes from female collaboration and I was craving that. I’d wanted to write a song like ‘Bodies ’for a long time, but felt like the unconscious biases in the room would affect my writing and my openness… I was worried the heart of it would get lost in translation. Eventually I realized that I had all of the instinct to explore it by myself, so I did.”
Empowerment affords gravity. It is a realm where the disenfranchised and of the seemingly powerless, takes what is due, back in spades. The world will get to know whom you really are, when you take control of what the world ‘sees in you’.
‘Bodies’ is a sultry, and enveloping pop offering that ensures such bases. It helps to increase the otherwise underutilized aspect of what being a human could be, within this sometimes unfair of worlds.

BODIES IS OUT EVERYWHERE! God, I love this song. I wrote it at a time I felt shameful about my body, my sexuality, my confidence. I needed a pop anthem to remind me that empowerment came from within, and there’s nothing wrong with embracing pleasure & intimacy as a woman. Hypersexualization of women is rampant in the music industry (and everywhere), so it was fun to flip the script with this one. GO LISTEN AND SHOW IT LOVEEEEE! 💗 Written by: @alitajoy & @itsellisay Produced by: @theearthsays & @itsellisay Mixed by: @raullopezmix Mastered by: @demifuguemastering
