An HBO original series following a group of hip, twentysomething women as they navigate their careers and relationships against the backdrop of Greenpoint, Brooklyn, Girls was a natural hit with the kind of hip twentysomethings who also happen to love Santigold. Seeing the potential for what an MBA would call “synergy,” the Roc Nation signee recorded a song, also titled Girls, to appear on the show. Produced by Switch and Trooko, the record comes packed with all the sing-song melodies and engaging rhymes fans of the Philly-bred singer, songwriter and emcee have come to expect. Weird Days directs the record’s official visuals, featuring a diverse array of real New York women mouthing the artist’s lyrics. Fans can find this record, along with contributions by fun., Robyn, Grouplove, Sleigh Bells and more on Girls - Volume 1, available now in stores and online.
