So, she did what any new artist would to: she went to her mentor, Kanye West. The album is about sex, but it’s also about intimacy, longing, heartbreak, and exploration. Where Hill had previously been relying on catchy hooks and production to tell her stories, now she’s relying on her deepest longing, desire, and curiosity to inform the tracks.
The first two singles, “Hard to Love” and the title track, “Like A Woman” introduce listeners to this new Kacy Hill. On “Hard to Love” Hill’s voice is front and center, tender and pleading with the listener, to remember their own heartbreaks, but not to let them defeat them. A radio ready pop track, “Hard to Love” is a sweet song about sadness, touching on the tender side of sexuality. Meanwhile, “Like a Woman” is a passionate, slow burning song, that builds slowly before opening up to give Hill’s voice room to breathe. Both songs are sexy and full of the quiet passion of a woman who is longing to touch and be touched, in all kinds of different ways.
