Chika has released “My Power,” her new single featured in the Netflix film Project Power, out now on the streaming platform.
Over a confident beat, Chika celebrates self-perseverance in the song’s lyrics. “Dare you to try and mess with me/I’m better as your friend and not an enemy/Disintegrate your clique cuz what’s a tick next to a centipede/This crown is more dramatic than a pregnancy,” she declares. “I came into the world and now they cannot put an end to me/I tried to make a dollar, but instead I made change/Now I see the bigger picture, man this life is so strange, what a range.”
Chika released her Industry Games EP in March. Earlier this month, she shared the single “U Should,” and was featured on XXL‘s 2020 Freshman Class alongside other up-and-coming rappers Polo G, Rod Wave and more. She performed her song “Crown” on the star-studded Graduate Together special, celebrating graduates who were unable to have an in-person ceremony due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Project Power stars Jamie Foxx, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Dominique Fishback, and follows a ragtag trio of a drug dealer, a police officer and a former soldier as they work to stop the distribution of a pill that gives the user super powers for five minutes. Chika has a small role in the film as a high school student.
