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.

Inspirational Jam: “Smile”-Kirk Franklin (Virtual Music Video)

“It’s so hard to look up when you look down
Sure would hate to see it when you give up now
You look so much better when you smile, so smile!”

Today’s Inspirational Jam is one of my favorites!  Kirk Franklin‘s “Smile” is such an incredibly encouraging song to listen to, especially when I’m feeling kind of down.

In these crazy times, Kirk recently recorded a virtual video for the song with artists like Kelly Price, Fantasia, Jonathan McReynolds, and more. I’ve heard this song so many times but seeing this video put not only a smile on my face, but also brought a few tears to my eyes!

Inspirational Jam: “The Other Side”-SZA & Justin Timberlake

“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?
