I have deemed this track from J. Cole as my summer anthem because it’s been in heavy rotation on my iPod ever since the release of his sophomore album.
To all the women with the flaws, know it’s hard my darling
You wonder why you’re lonely and your man’s not calling
You keep falling victim cause you’re insecure
And when I tell you that you’re beautiful you can’t be sure
Cause he don’t seem to want you back and it’s got you asking
So all you see is what you lacking, not what you packing
Take it from a man that loves what you got
And baby girl you’re a star, don’t let ’em tell you you’re not
Now is it real? Eyebrows, fingernails, hair
Is it real? if it’s not, girl you don’t care
Cause what’s real is something that the eyes can’t see
That the hands can’t touch, that them broads can’t be, and that’s you
I would be remiss if I didn’t also mention the fact that Born Sinner has jumped to #1 on the Billboard charts after spending its first two weeks behind “Yeezus” from Kanye West and “The Gifted” from Wale which is a rare accomplishment.
What’s your summer anthem???
