Inspirational Jam: “Ambitious Girl”-Wale

“Ambitious girl, you just wanna win, and you’d rather chase your dreams than to try to chase these men…”

                                             —Wale

This Inspirational Jam today is just for the ladies. And it’s…less of a song, but more of spoken word set to music.

Wale‘s poem “Ambitious Girl” is for all of the women out there working their butts off to achieve their dreams. It’s not always a pretty or perfect journey. It can be downright rough, if we’re honest. But our dreams are much bigger than any level of discomfort or fear, and we grind hard to make them into reality. Wale celebrates that and encourages us on this track, as he has on others.

I played this ALL THE TIME when it first came out. Seriously. It was a ringtone. It was my alarm. It was playing in my ears on my way to class or when I was typing up papers in college. It was serious motivation back in 2010 going into sophomore year, and still continues to be. I hope it inspires some of you other ladies, too.

Take a listen below!

Inspirational Jam: “The Bloom (AG3)”-Wale feat. Stokley Williams

“May the sun kiss you, unconditional. I pray each and every lyric get to you on this third rendition for you and your ambition boo. Bloom.”

                                                               –Wale (“The Bloom [AG3]”)

Last night, I went to go see my favorite rapper’s Wale at one of my local radio station’s WPGC 95.5‘s 30th Birthday Bash. My body is paying for it (I keep forgetting I’m closer to 30 than 20), but the night was LIT!

Anyway, in honor of last night, today’s inspirational jam is from my fave, as he gives another tribute to the ambitious girls out here with “The Bloom (AG3)” featuring Stokely Williams.  Having released two versions of “Ambitious Girl” previously, this third rendition is upbeat and catchy as Wale continues to encourage us to stay true to our wild and crazy selves while we get on these goals. And the video was shot in the beautiful Anguilla, which makes it all the more amazing to watch!
