In Big Boss, a young woman from Chicago struggles to make it in the unpredictable, callous, male-dominated music industry, only to realize the greater challenge was learning to trust her own instincts. Written and directed by Keke Palmer, this is her true story of perseverance, self-love, impenetrable faith, and survival of spirit.

Big Boss is the latest piece of content released on Amazon Music throughout its celebration of Women's History Month, including new curated playlists dedicated to communities of women, such as "Written By" and "Produced By," which highlight the songwriters and producers behind the music.

Earlier this month, Amazon Music also released an original song with Grammy-nominated producer Honey Dijon titled "Do You Feel The Same?" featuring Cor.Ece-a bonus track from her sophomore album, Black Girl Magic. Women storytellers can also #ShareTheAux with other creators on Amp, the live radio app from Amazon, and share their stories in support of each other's truths, passions, and experiences as women.

The Amazon Music channel on Twitch has also hosted discussions on the Women in Music - Group Thread series, a weekly livestreamed conversation between a panel of artists, creators, industry players, and entrepreneurs who have broken industry barriers. Hosted by Amber Wallin, recent episodes have featured interviews with artists and music executives including Nelccia, Brandee Younger, Baroline Diaz and Kianna Styles. Listeners can tune into the series' final episode, streaming Monday, March 27, at 6:00 p.m. PDT/9:00 p.m. EDT via Twitch here.
