The they only have the power if you

 The most essential
and meaningful thing in my life is music. Lacking melodies and harmonies life
would be empty. Listening to and playing different songs eases my mind and it
can also help motivate me in hard times. We listen to many different songs and
have favorites that we listen to many times even if we already memorized the
lyrics.

            My
thoughts on this song is, that she knew everyone’s life had experienced some
bumps and bruises, but you must live through it and advance. Remember no one
can steal your joy or happiness they only have the power if you acknowledge it
to them. This song means something to me because I can carry out or accomplish
anything if I put my mind to it. It also brightens up my spirit, because I
rather experience my life-like it’s golden and achieve things that I enjoy.

India, Arie. “Video.” Acoustic
Soul. Motown.2001

            The
message of this song is on accepting who you are and loving yourself. Although
all the pictures that social media portray of the “ideal women’; women
should stop aiming to find themselves through Instagram models, and start to
bring out and highlight their most admirable qualities. To gain self-respect,
dignity, and honor for self-healing; you must be honest with yourself.

 

Nas. ” I Can.” Gods
Son.Columbia.2003

            The
message of this song is children need to value themselves, and they can accomplish
anything if they work vigorously. Consequently, the target audience for the
song accompanies children. Nas focused more specifically on African American
children. He used this song to address a few stereotypes that the rap and
hip-hop industries impose on children ,and utilized this song as a balance of
trying to empower and educate African American children by breaking stereotypes
that they get from children listening to rap and hip-hop music. I can relate to
this song because the youth should have knowledge of about our history and they
can be anything and no-one can tell you what you can be. Additionally, we
should advise young African Americans not to send their life away. We need to
be aware of how to anticipate and plan for our future.

 “Unity.” Black Reign. Motown Records.1993

            The
message from this song was saying that black men should have more respect for
us black women, and stop using us as a sex symbol. Queen Latifah felt that men
were getting away with speaking to women in an insulting manner back then and
many people weren’t surprised when they heard lyrics that were as misogynist. I
can relate because I feel that men should stop calling females out their names,
have a little more respect, and start treating us like queens and we don’t have
to be half naked.  

 

Boosie. “I Testify.” BooPac.
Atlantic Records.2017

This song is about the everyday
living as an African American today. The artist rap about what’s wrong in some
black homes. He stated why black males start selling drugs because they don’t
offer jobs. He also expresses how children don’t play in the backyards they
rather watch other kids play with toys on YouTube. He basically is saying he
wants black people to support one another. We must learn again to be involved,
whether we have a special interest in those issues affect others if not
ourselves. Our championship of each other must be genuine and so that others
who don’t look like us; understand we care about each other.

Yfn Lucci. “Letter From Lucci.” Wish Me Well 2. Think it’s a Game Entertainment.2016

            This
song is about understanding your worth and move out of people way who trying to
ruin it. This song relates to me because since I’ve been attending college, I
tried to avoid negative conflicts that will try to alter my life. Get rid of
the toxic people who are not motivating you to carry out your goals. If you get
rid of them then, everything will start to move easily.

 

Tupac. “Changes.” Greatest Hits. Interscope.1998

 Tupac shows how difficult life is to be a
disadvantaged black man in America, with a kindness on issues with police
brutality. As the song advances, Tupac makes understandable as people
occasionally wish it could be better, and that people must get used to these
new circumstances. Throughout the time of a break in the song, Tupac takes a
minute to stop and accompany the authentic purpose of the song.  It’s time for us as a people to start making’
some changes. Let’s alter the way we eat, let’s transform the way we react and
let’s alter the way we act towards each other. You see the accepted way wasn’t
working so it’s on us to accomplish what we gathered to survive. He
demonstrates legitimate reasons for the unsafe and dishonest acts that suggest
that unfortunate people must resort to survive. I enjoy this song because it
portrays a persuasive message to everyone, but if you people really
comprehended the meaning of the song, you would realize the cause of all the
world’s problems is from people hating each other for simple-minded reasons.

           

Mary J. Blige. “Just Fine.” Growing Pains.Geffen.2007

            This is
a song about being positive regarding life and how good it feels to feel
awesome. This song is based on having a good day. I can relate to this song
because I can have as many bad days as anyone but I choose to say, I’m just
fine. You know those days when your hair and nails  looks great, have an outstanding grade point
average, your boyfriend not acting like an idiot than you’re just fine. So
instead of coming with something ungrateful to the world, how about I come with
something that makes everything fine.
