Diana Gordon is back. A self-described “breakdown” in 2016 sparked change, Gordon was largely reclusive for the following year. No, she never “left”–she penned a few of the most famous lines on Beyonce’s Lemonade–but after experiencing largely commercial success under a different moniker, Wynter Gordon, she felt it was time to be truer to her roots. Though not a single from her new EP, “Thank You” is a vulnerable anthem about finding inner strength. Gordon’s roots are in R&B–penning hits for Mary J. Blige and Jennifer Lopez–and she feels, and sounds, at home in the genre’s soundscape. Her self-released EP, Pure, is out now.
