November 20, 2018 | Maryze & Ciele tackle the #MeToo movement

Tonight’s show was a very important one for us. We were thrilled to have Maryze and Ciele on the show to talk about their brand new single “Men Like You”, which is described by the artists as a “battle cry for survivors” and looks to seek “accountability in the music industry”. It is a truly beautiful and powerful song that shares the very personal experiences of both Maryze and Ciele, and we’re so thankful that they took the time to create this song and use their platform to add their voices to the #MeToo movement and discussion.

Take a listen to the song here:
