Recorded in Nashville, Tenn., and produced by four-time Grammy winner Keb’ Mo’, the blues influenced album features guest appearances from Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Robben Ford and Keb’ Mo’. A trending theme in today’s world is women overcoming obstacles and breaking through the glass ceilings to reach the top. “Like It On Top” celebrates those that take initiative, develop, inspire and motivate. But it also credits the men who are motivated and enlightened enough to support women in their quest to be their best versions of themselves. The first single, “Like It On Top,” emphasizes that behind every strong, successful woman stands the man that understands the importance of having women be leaders in society.
And the final track, the gentle “Honey I’m Home,” gives a shout-out to an ever-growing number of families in which men give up their careers to support a woman’s career.
“I hope that my music inspires others to motivate ladies all over the world to be successful, energetic, empowered women on a mission, and to motivate men to give them that chance,” Popovic says. “The majority of women need to work harder than men to prove themselves or need to cope with a feeling of constant pressure to never make a mistake and be perfect. I believe that women no longer only have the right to earn a living and to take care of themselves and their families.”
The record offers ten tracks on ten subjects, including breaking new ground, feeling good in her skin, taking charge, making choices, having the courage to escape an abusive relationship and getting her life back on track.
“The time has come to step it up,” Popovic says. “Becoming the outstanding leaders of tomorrow. Corner-office ladies in business, politics, and the electric guitar!”
