Milan Records today announces THE WOMAN KING (ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK) and shares an original vocal track “KEEP RISING” ahead of the album’s release on September 16. Available everywhere now, “KEEP RISING” was written by singer-songwriter JESSY WILSON alongside JEREMY LUTITO as the end credits theme to TriStar Pictures’ upcoming action drama, which is the remarkable story of the Agojie, the all-female unit of warriors who protected the African Kingdom of Dahomey in the 1800s with skills and fierceness unlike anything the world has ever seen. Recorded as a duet between Wilson and “Africa’s premiere diva” ANGÉLIQUE KIDJO, who compliments Wilson’s soulful vocals with her traditional African melodies, “KEEP RISING” is a powerfully inspiring and uplifting song that captures the bravery and spirit of the onscreen warriors.

Of today’s track, The Woman King director GINA PRINCE-BYTHEWOOD says, “An end title song is so important because you are curating the emotional end for your audience as they leave the theater. Jessy and Angélique have given us an incredible song that gets me incredibly hyped and inspired. Our film is a period piece, and ‘Keep Rising’ lyrically and sonically gives us an incredible bridge to the present. It is also a beautiful meld of cultures, most notably the culture of Benin where our incredible warriors are from. It is the perfect last flourish for The Woman King.”
