Divinity Roxx Releases Family Hip-Hop Album
West New York bassist and songwriter Divinity Roxx has released a new hip-hop album for families, Ready Set Go!, with eight original songs that show kids the power of positivity. Best known as the bass player with Beyoncé’s all-female band, Divinity wrote the songs to encourage children to “move and groove to their own beautiful beat.”
She also just published two Scholastic picture books based on her songs “Happy and Healthy,” a celebration of life and health, and “Me + You,” a look at the meaning of family. Each book is illustrated by NaShantá Fletcher and contains a link to the corresponding song.
Ready Set Go! is now streaming everywhere, including bandcamp, Apple Music, Spotify and Amazon.
NPR recently reviewed the album, saying, “While unabashed positivity runs throughout Ready Set Go, Divinity also includes a song called “Love, Love, Love” that recognizes sometimes families argue. ‘Whenever humans come together, there’s always some kind of conflict you’re going to face,’ she says. ‘But if you can rest on the fact that you love each other and respect each other when you are expressing your differences, that love is what’s going to keep you bonded.’ Wise words for grown-ups too.”
