“I’m so excited to release Good Time Being a Woman and to celebrate this milestone with my new family at Universal Music Canada,” said Emily. “When I wrote this song, I was having a truly gorgeous day! The sun was out, my outfit was dope, and I was sitting in a room with some talented writers who love, respect, and honour all that is womanly and special, regardless of gender norms. After a long road of judging myself and questioning my self-worth, I felt like celebrating! We deserve crazy amounts of joy and nobody knows how to have a good time like the ladies!”
“I was inspired to write about feeling comfortable in your own skin and celebrating all of the wonder there is about being a woman. I wanted to bottle the feeling of dancing in front of the mirror, laughing with your pals, or singing along to the radio that lifts your spirits and makes you feel full of joy and celebration. “
