“You wanna run it back, but you can’t turn the time…you start to feel like you’re losing your shine, but the grass ain’t always greener on the other side…”
Today’s Inspirational Jam is a positive track from a duo I never knew I needed: SZA and Justin Timberlake!
“The Other Side” is the lead single for Trolls: World Tour (being released digitally on April 10) and it has a great message. On the track, SZA and Justin sing to listeners about comparing themselves to other people or zoning in on past regrets. At the end of the day, there’s no point. Whatever happened or didn’t happen for you is your current reality. What are you going to do moving forward?
Sometimes, there are things I wish I could change about myself. There are levels I wish I had reached and moments of opportunity that I feel like I missed. I see people online whose lives seem so glamorous and successful. In doing that, I am being un for what I have and have been able to accomplish. I’m also kind of downplaying what other people have gone through (or are currently going through) for their success.
This song, to me, is basically about appreciating what you have and where you are right now at this moment. Everything will work out how it’s supposed to FOR YOU.
