Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter EL MAR premiered “Just My Body” exclusively via Billboard today, and you can listen to it below. The song serves as the first official release from the artist’s upcoming full-length album – due out in early 2017.

The track is a powerful ballad with a socially conscious message. “‘Just My Body’ is a song that’s very special to me,” says the artist. “It’s for and about women, and the difficult choices they sometimes have to make. Those decisions are tough, and incredibly personal, and women should have the right to do what is best for themselves and their bodies.”
