With no build up or buzz campaign (not including that Christmas advert she’s on, of course), Allen released the gloriously acerbic ‘Hard Out Here’ today slamming female pop stars who rely on looks and twerking to reach an audience. Sample lyric: “Don’t need to shake my arse for you / ‘Cus I’ve got a brain”.
