“Rich in the mind, that’s why I’m making deposits…Can’t we all empower? It’s time to realize it. They’ll never, ever take my power.”
I could say so much about this Inspirational Jam today because it really is a strong statement, particularly for those of color if I’m being real. I hope that it inspires you today and beyond.
“My Power,” featured on Beyoncé’s compilation album, The Lion King: The Gift, highlights the talents of Tierra Whack, Moonchild Sanelly, Yemi Alade, Nija, Busiswa, DJ Lag, and Bey herself, and other artists. For me, the song is a realization that I have so much to offer the world and I shouldn’t dim my light for any reason. None of us should allow other people or circumstances to rob us of our work, our gifts, and certainly not the power we have on this earth. I’m learning to stand confidently in mine.
