I’m Not Bossy, I’m the Boss promises to deliver on the artist’s characteristic style and lyricism on the topic of all things love, sex, and pop music.

I Do Not Want What I Haven't GotSinéad O’Connor was launched into worldwide fame in the early 1990s after her release of I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got. The album contained a cover of Prince‘s 1985 “Nothing Compares 2 U.” The song existed in obscurity before Sinéad O’Connor’s cover, and it soon The Lion and the Cobrabecame a worldwide hit. In the following decade, O’Connor would release several more albums and become an icon of critical acclaim and cultural controversy.

I’m Not Bossy, I’m the Boss appears to be an example of Sinéad O’Connor doing what she does best. In a first listen review,So Far ... The Best Of NPR spoke on the album: “O’Connor works in mostly familiar musical territory on I’m Not Bossy: multi-tracked vocals, folk flourishes, danceable beats amped up with rock attitude. Newly prominent in her mix is a strong blues element.” Watch the official music video for “Take Me To Church,” the first single from I’m Not Bossy, I’m the Boss below and discover the hype for yourself.
