Johnny Gill Honors Michelle Obama, Oprah, Lupita & Others in New Video

Johnny Gill is back with his first release since 2014’s Game Changer. On a new track, “Soul of a Woman,” the R&B crooner soulfully praises his lady while describing her best qualities.

“Cause, baby, your love is so divine / It’s just like paradise / And it’s a beautiful design / Girl, you give me life. Ain’t nothin’ like the soul of a woman / To make you feel like goin’ when you feel like givin’ up / That’s my baby.”

Along with the new single, the New Edition member released an accompanying lyric video honoring powerful women such as Michelle Obama, Stacey Abrams, Janet Jackson, Halle Berry, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Maya Angelou, Ava DuVernay and others.
