Jameela Jamil Responds to People Questioning Her Producing Credit on James Blake's Album

Jameela Jamil has responded to criticism of her producing credit on musician James Blake’s album. Apparently some people are questioning the credit, and in response Jameela tweeted “A lot of mostly women insisting I couldn’t possibly have actually worked on my boyfriend’s music, and that he must have just credited me to be nice… I was a DJ for 8 years, and studied music for 6 years before that. You are part of the problem of why women don’t pursue producing.”

Jameela noted that “In the end I took the credit I deserved because of how important it is for women who work on music to visibly exist in the space of music production, and because I would want any of you who follow me to take ownership of what is rightfully your achievements.”

She went on to encourage others to take credit for their work, saying “We are in this shit together. Representation matters. It is not our responsibility to be believed, liked, understood or approved of. You just carry on as you are. I’m right there with you. Giving everyone the finger! 😂”

She ended her post encouraging followers to Listen to James’ new album Friends That Break your Heart, saying “It’s a stunning and important record. He’s a total freak of nature.”
