Diana Gordon makes TV debut on Colbert
Diana Gordon — the songwriter who famously co-wrote Beyoncé’s “Sorry,” “Don’t Hurt Me,” and “Daddy Lessons,” off Lemonade — made her solo TV debut Tuesday night when she performed a new single “Woman” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
Backed by a full band, Gordon stared straight into the camera, belting lyrics like, “God gave you the answer when he gave you the woman.”
The track follows her latest release, “The Legend Of,” which reintroduced her as Diana Gordon to fans who may only know her under EDM moniker Wynter Gordon.
When asked about writing “Woman,” which combines hard-stomping guitars and slinky backing vocals, Gordon told EW, “I was in that Pam Grier Bette Davis mood.” She said, “I worked with these producers I never met before. I walked in the room with a fro — I had my natural hair out — and i was like I’m not going to write another song about sex and love. I was like we’re going to talk about women. That’s just what it was.”
