Saint Bodhi, the genre-bending singer/songwriter from South-Central-L.A. has a brand new single and lyric video “Hurt Like Me,” available now via Def Jam Recordings. The emotional, raw single highlights the singers lyrical skill and smooth flow that is authentically her own.
“This song is for anyone who’s ever been wronged by their partner and wishes they could break every window and slash every tire. Just don’t actually do it, because like I said lawyers in LA are too expensive.”
Recently, Saint Bodhi collaborated with Marvel Comics, as part of the final three-issue “Intergalactic Empire” saga of Marvel’s Black Panther comics series, from the acclaimed guest creative team of writer Ta-Nehisi Coates and artist Daniel Acuna. Saint Bodhi, along with fellow Def Jam rising stars Bobby Sessions and Kaash Paige, each contributed individual character-driven short stories for Black Panther #23, #24, and #25.
Working with co-writer Danny Lore, artist Alitha Martinez, and colorist Rachelle Rosenberg, Saint Bodhi considered the mutant Storm for an emotional story grounded in tragedy and acceptance. The story, she told Rolling Stone in an extended profile article, “is about a girl in Africa who’s struggling with her anger issues after her family is murdered. She was about to destroy the world. The whole world was about to crack open because of her anger, and I thought Storm was best suited to go help this little girl… Storm also dealt with a lot of trauma when she was growing up.”
