This is that shit right here………….
Somewhere there’s someone who dreams of your smile.
Whether you choose to believe me or not, you make a difference in someone’s life.
If you’re struggling with your single status or just don’t know if there will ever be someone right for you, trust, there’s someone out there for you. Not only are they out there, but they’re thinking of you too.
Every time you step out of your house, you have the opportunity to make someone’s day. Whether you know it or not, you make a difference to someone everyday.
What should put an even bigger smile on YOUR face is that you maybe the reason for someone’s smile that’s even closer to you.
Yesterday as I was checking the messages on my Fanpage Who The Hell Is Eden Hansom (Love that page people!), the lovely Kay sent me a message.
Surprisingly, she’s a fan of mine (GO figure!) and knowing my love or music, especially undiscovered talent, she sent me this video of her doing a cover of Florence and the Machine’s Dog Days Are Over.
Lord bless this child and this angelic voice of her’s!
Not only is she a talent and force to be reckoned with, she’s versatile and fluid. She doesn’t have, what I call, N*gga ears and take ANY song and make it her own.
Not stuck in any genre.
Voice is SLAYED!
I’m impressed and I had to send her video to all my music buds that I know. Watch the video and get familiar with Kay Dené.
Be in AWE of this talent like I was!
I walk in with Turbans on my head.
Ankhs on my ears.
Jewelry from South Africa around my neck (Thanks J!!!!!!!!)
Afros as high as God will allow them to get…..
Individual twists like nobody’s business.
Box braids all the way down to my butt crack………..
And NO ONE bats an eye.
Dissect A Song: Donell Jones - Where I Wanna Be
The Selfish N*gga Theme Song
Earlier in the week, I was jammin’ in my car to throwback songs when this gem from Donell Jones came on.
Of course I got excited because I remember SWEARING by this song and video when I was in high school.
So as I was singing alone to the song, I began to pay attention to words that I was singing and I STOPPED.
What kind of selfish N*gga shit was a swearing to for all these years?????
Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to dissect the song.
I said I left my baby girl a message
Sayin’ I won’t be coming home
I’d rather be alone
She doesn’t fully understand me
That I’d rather leave than to cheat
If she gives me some time
I can be the man she needs
But there’s a lot of lust inside of me
And we’ve been together since our teenage years
I really don’t mean to hurt her, but I need some time
To be alone
Hold up…..you mean to tell me you jumped into a relationship with me when your ass wasn’t ready to be the man I wanted and YOU said YOU were???? The fuck you mean you need “alone time”????? We haven’t been TOGETHER all the time since we were teenagers. When I went away to college I KNOW you were dipping. And I said NOTHING. So now you want some more time to stick your dick in other tramps and I’m just suppose to sit and wait for your greedy ass?????
But when you love someone
You just don’t treat them bad
Oh, how I feel so sad
Now that I wanna leave
She’s crying her heart to me
How could you let this be?
I just need time to see
Where I wanna be
Where I wanna be…
So you really going to hurt my feelings like this????
Never did I imagine
That you would play a major part
In a decision that’s so hard
Do I leave, do I stay, do I go?
I think about my life and what matters to me the most
Girl, the love that we share is real
But in time your heart will heal
I’m not saying I’m gone
But I have to find what life is like
So what YOU’RE telling me is that love isn’t enough? You can’t be responsible enough to keep yourself out of trouble and into the arms of the one who loves you? So while you go off to find yourself, you want me to just go about my business and live my life….BUT NOT TOO MUCH. Cause when you’re ready to come back you want things to magically fall into place like you didn’t just leave my black ass high and dry????
How fuckin’ selfish????
And then I watched the video and got even MORE upset. He’s out having the time of his life while she’s at home, ALONE. With a dry coochie. Like, chick, you were home free. Enjoying a delicious FREE meal with someone vying for your time and love and all this N*gga gotta do is come along looking like he stole a throwback Run DMC getup from Rev Run’s closet breathing all up on the damn window and you take his back.
Granted, the man she was a date with a horrid Morris Day look alike but THAT’S NOT THE POINT!
Lesson from this song:
As two adults in an ADULT relationship, you don’t get no damn breaks. Either we together or I’m going to Jamaica to get my groove back.
Most likely, they’ll just give you three drinks that you have to make to make sure you don’t over pour and know the ingredients. Most definitely a Long Island Ice Tea, Margarita, and something “on the rocks”, or “neat” will be asked. As for the experience on the resume….Just list people in your life that have GREAT careers as your reference that you’ve done ”private parties for” and name a club or lounge that’s no long in existence that you’ve worked for. Give a friend’s name and phone number as your reference that “worked” with you at that establishment.
