Super tasty, slinky good fun. That’s Ana Popovic’s Like It On Top, a new album of original blues due out on September 14. Shades of Steely Dan meet hardcore funk and blues on this collection that finds Popovic exploring different sides of female empowerment and feminist issues. Popovic delivers a strong performance with juicy guitar licks, funky rhythms and spot on, lively vocals.
Popovic shares about the album’s title, “Being on top is about achieving your own potential. Succeeding in juggling work, family, social life, expectations of the others, of the society, while pushing limits. Renewing yourself and inspiring others. Like It On Top celebrates those women who take initiative, develop, inspire and motivate. It’s about feeling good about yourself and what you do.”
Its 10 songs cover topics that are partly autobiographical and partly broader statements aimed at every women—desire and fantasy, feeling empowered about your craft, confronting dominant macho male attitudes, escaping an abusive marriage and how to have a strong man as your partner.
