Premiere: The Love & Liquored-Up Seduction of Josephina’s Debut “Woosah”

There’s something utterly intoxicating about joy: Of being in that blissful state of warmth and light, where the past and the future are out of mind and all that matters is the present. It’s uninhibited, it’s sexy, and it’s entrancing – the perfect concoction for a memorable night, not to mention a catchy debut: With a sultry bounce and intimate edge, Josephina’s pulsing “Woosah” encapsulates joy like lightning in a bottle, dripping with ecstasy, positivity and love.

I never run from a fight
Always got my heels high
Always speaking my mind
Right oh
I never need to play nice
Get what I want with a smile
Drink tequila on ice
Hey, hi
“Woosah” – Josephina (dir. Joseph Levi)


Atwood Magazine is proud to be premiering Josephina’s dynamic debut “Woosah,” a song that promises to get bodies loose and moving. The artistic moniker for LA-based, Virginia-born Josephina Carr, Josephina introduces herself as a crossroads of many worlds: Self-identifying as an alternative pop singer/songwriter, she draws from electronic music, hip-hop, R&B and more in crafting a style that is nothing short of ecclectic ear candy.

Woosah – Josephina

Oh love and liquor
I don’t know why I mix ya
Look what I’m bout to do
Oh love and liquor
You strip me of my temper
Turning my temperature to cool

“My co-writer [Trey Campbell] and I wrote this song about having fun, feeling confident, and spreading good vibes,” shares Josephina. “It was an amazing feeling to see everyone come together on set to bring this song to life in the music video. It’s full of good energy, but also has a sense of intimacy and really shows people who I am as an artist. I’m beyond excited to share ‘Woosah’ with the world!”

“Woosah” is a passionate outburst of confidence, an overtly sensual display that capitalizes on sexuality without making sex the subject. Josephina dances with her words, tickling our mental funny bones and tantalizing us with an intimate visual that showcases the artist as well as her song.

When you give me some
That’s when I become
Woosah
Got me feeling
Woosah woosah woo
You know after one
That’s when I become
Woosah
Got me feeling
Woosah woosah woo

Woosah – Josephina

Come be my after-party
The way that you move your body
Think you might be somebody
Ishould hold on to
Heat me up like wasabi
The way that you move your body
Think you might be somebody
I should hold on to

Pop is easily the hardest industry to break into, and being a female solo artist is all the more daunting. Josephina shares that uphill battle with independent pop acts like Nashville’s CAPPA and LA’s Jenna Lotti: She’ll have to work twice as hard to get half as far, but she’ll have her integrity intact – and there’s nothing more meaningful than that. With a team like producer Morten Pilegaard (whose credits include Lukas Graham’s breakout “7 Years”) and co-writer Trey Campbell (Bebe Rexha, Bea Miller, Adam Lambert), Josephina has a solid starting platform from which to launch her career.

The lead single off Josephina’s forthcoming debut EP, “Woosah” is but the first taste of Josephina – a many-sided look at an artist with still more secrets, more depth, and more insights to share. To say that “Woosah” is a radio-ready single is an understatement: It’s a euphoric party, and you’re invited to get in on the action. Join Josephina and get woosah, woosah all night long.
