"We women are stronger together than against each other." See how far Blossom has come and how much further she has to go at night one of The Thesis' two-day, two-year anniversary party at Kelly's Olympian on December 1.

After hot sets at Pickathon this summer followed by EYRST's one-year birthday party, 2016 has seen the Trinidad and Tobago-born, Portland-raised diva headline Girl Fest NW in January and be named XRAY.fm's debut featured artist this month.

Rocking some 60 shows this year, if you've been out and about at any of the above then you've definitely had your ears tuned in to "Black Magic Woman," "a special song to me," Blossom says. "I wrote it because I felt like we, as women, were finally seeing the light within ourselves. Coming together in the spirit of unity and love for ourselves and one another—stronger together than against each other. I wrote it for my friends who inspire me daily. I wrote it for myself as a reminder of how far I've come and how much further I have to go."

You might imagine that the chill, reggae'd production by Fountaine would cool you down, but then you'll press play on the video for "Black Magic Woman" below and it'll all heat back up in an instant, reaching a sultry, sticky humidity in seconds. Adding fuel to the fire, Blossom just supported Aminé (alongside her EYRST labelmate The Last Artful, Dodgr) on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on November 15, which only amplifies our excitement to see and hear her future flame blaze even brighter.

See it for yourself when Blossom shares The Thesis stage at Kelly's Olympian on Thursday, December 1 as part of the Headliners bill on the first day of the hip-hop showcase's second birthday. Until then, warm your body temp up with the vid for "Black Magic Woman" below.
