Rapsody mentioned that she is essentially an “extension” of the powerful women who inspired her, and her album is a tribute to the work they did before her.

It’s a beautiful way to say “Thank You” and pay the good vibes forward. Eve will be Rapsody’s third studio album and is set to release August 23rd. However, you can preorder Eve now.
