This month’s playlist has been curated by Maryze. Maryze is a Pop-R&B singer-songwriter based in Montreal. Her sultry, and honest music digs deep into feminist values, evoking a sense of comfort and strength for her listeners.

Her upcoming single “Men Like You” created in collaboration with producer/vocalist/lyricist Ciele, will be released November 9th. This emotive and vulnerable track is an open letter to sexual assault abusers and a “battle cry for survivors.” It is a, “call for accountability” of abuse, specifically in the form of sexual assault, in the music industry.

With the heightened discourse around accountability for sexual assault , the two felt like it was a good time to join in on the discussion and share their story. Ciele explains that “We understand the difficulty of being able to speak out about sexual trauma, for fear of putting oneself at risk emotionally, professionally, and physically...” Maryze continues, “Neither of us felt comfortable or safe enough to make our stories public before the recent conversation and movements surrounding the issue, such as #MeToo and #WhyIDidntReport.” The music industry in particular has slowly been addressing these issues and we hope "Men Like You" can continue that conversation.
