Inspirational Jam: “We Got Love”-Teyana Taylor feat. Lauryn Hill

I live in abundance…love is the new money. I’m mentally wealthy, spiritually conscious…”

I’m on an attitude of gratitude kick this week, searching my heart, reminding myself of my purpose, and checking my intentions. Today’s Inspirational Jam from Teyana Taylor reflects that.

Teyana’s track, “We Got Love,” featuring Ms. Lauryn Hill is a reminder that, having money is nice, but having love and support around you is what matters the most.

Inspirational Jam: “Love Myself”-Tracee Ellis Ross

“Got nothing to share…maybe I should put my phone down. I don’t really care if everybody likes me. I just wanna love myself…”

I absolutely LOVE this song by Tracee Ellis Ross and wanted to have it be this week’s Inspirational Jam. 

“Love Myself” is about just that: the journey of loving yourself. We get caught up in comparing ourselves to others on social media and needing validation from other people sometimes. We feel like we need to change aspects of who we are, forgetting that we are enough.  This was a really good reminder for me. The song was featured on the soundtrack for The High Note, which stars Tracee alongside Dakota Johnson and Ice Cube.

Inspirational Jam: “Anymore”-Alex Vaughn

“I’m trying to get this money…let’s go and get this money. But I can’t do it at this party. I finally decided that things can’t be the same anymore…”

I absolutely love this track from Alex Vaughn and I wanted to use it for this week’s Inspirational Jam!

On “Anymore,” Alex sings about the fact that, with the goals she has for her career, she can’t keep getting distracted by all of these parties or other things that take up too much of her time. She has to put her energy more towards getting better in her craft and growing her career.

Inspirational Jam: “Blessed Up”-Wande

“I’ve been blessed up. I’ve been broke down. Gotta catch up…gotta shine now. Running faster…I can’t slow down…”

Today’s Inspirational Jam comes from Christian hip hop artist Wande, an artist I just started listening to this week.

On her track, “Blessed Up,” Wande acknowledges her many blessings in life but also that they came with a whole lot of prayer and work. She also encourages listeners to persevere in the pursuit of their dreams.

Inspirational Jam: “Heroes (We Could Be)”-Alesso feat. Tove Lo

“Everyday people do everyday things but  I can’t be one of them….”

For today’s Inspirational Jam, I wanted to feature “Heroes” from Swedish DJ Alesso featuring Tove Lo! I randomly dance to it in my living room from time to time.

To me, the song is all about being confident in the fact that you may march to a different beat. It also says that you have the ability to do anything you want to do in this life. You can impact people right where you are with the gifts that you have been blessed to have.
