Sherni is a song on women empowerment, where Hard Kaur will urge all women to be strong and be shernis in real life.
“I represent female empowerment to my core. I wrote this song four years ago but didn’t release it till now as I didn’t think people were ready for this kind of track. We don’t really get much support for this kind of material because it’s not commercial. So now that the digital scene is so big, artists like me can afford to drop our music independently and let our fans enjoy our true work,” said Hard Kaur.
She added, “With all the bullshit that’s been happening in our country regarding rape, sexism, and ill treatment towards women, I think we are done taking all this crap. Enough! We all need to be shernis and let the world know that.”
Hard Kaur’s Sherni, which packs the message for women to be strong, released on her own record label – Future Records on July 26, 2016.
