Fool's Gold Records' artist Leaf created movement to empower women
Fool's Gold Records artist Leaf has been paving a path not only for herself but her sound. She has received attention for her Lil Yachty-assisted song "Nada," and was our handpicked Spotlight artist for her "FWM (Lie To Me)" music video. But the lane that she's creating isn't just for herself, it is for all women. The rising artist developed what she calls the 'Magnet Bitch Movement.' This movement was created to band women together for a common goal, to rule the world. Check out our Women's History Month feature on the creative and edgy artist Ms. Leaf. #Women In Charge
