Queer Pop Artist Jennarie Sparks Soulful and Funky Revolution With ‘My Body Treats Me Better’
Burgeoning Montreal-born, Toronto-based queer pop artist Jennarie is ready to explode onto the scene with her debut single, “My Body Treats Me Better,” out now! The track is a funky, upbeat, body-positive anthem defined by soulful, soaring vocals reminiscent of Amy Winehouse and Lady Gaga.
Jennarie first cut her teeth in the Toronto music scene, where she gained a powerful stage presence by performing regular live shows all over town. She’s continued to make waves and build a strong name for herself in the years since, with renowned Canadian print and online magazine The WholeNote recently hailing her for her “big voice, fearless delivery, ebullient sense of rhythm, and bubbles of humor.”
Now, with “My Body Treats Me Better,” Jennarie is ready to take her career to the next level. She enlisted producer Nick Tateishi for the project, who recently provided production to singer and songwriter Francois Klark’s JUNO Award-nominated 2022 sophomore album, Adventure Book, and is known for his work with the likes of Clerel, HILLARI, and Kiki Rowe, to name a few.
“‘My Body Treats Me Better’ is a funky pop anthem I wrote about body liberation, self-love, unlearning harmful societal scripts and liberating ourselves from self-loathing and insecurity,” Jennarie explains of the track. “It’s the perfect feel-good bop and features real instruments, including saxophone, guitar, bass, electric piano and drums. The music and the message are the perfect pick-me-up for any time of day, and the retro pop vibe is sure to catch the ears of anyone who listens.”
“My Body Treats Me Better” is an electric track packed to the brim with good energy, heartfelt lyrics, and a strong, positive message that speaks to the power of self-love and finding beauty in one’s own individuality. “Don’t you let those voices tell you what to do/Go on and break those walls, live the life you’re meant to,” she croons on the track. It’s a message she’s taken to heart — if “My Body Treats Me Better” is any indication, Jennarie won’t be slowing down anytime soon.
