Thanks to Soul Tracks, I heard this song a little over a week ago for the first time. I have been playing it at least once a day ever since.
Last year, I featured a song from Renee Neufville, one-half of the nineties R&B duo Zhané. This song features the other half, the former Jean Norris. Now married to drummer Marcus Baylor, they have formed The Baylor Project, whose album The Journey was released earlier this year. Once I found this song, I played the album, which is good; but nothing on it is as good to me as this particular song.
If only I had heard the words “holding on to something bad won’t make it any better” a few years ago when I was dealing with the aftermath of the end of my marriage. But when I hear this song now, in the place where I am, I can see what it really means to laugh and move on.
As for the song itself, it’s beautiful, and the video is gorgeous. Give it a listen and see what you think.
Thanks for reading and listening.
