I know it’s been a while since I put down something here, yea I know. A lot has been going on until today I decided to let my mind take a creative journey , thanks to my good friend Dru. He took me to some “Wale schooling” and yes I know from the songs I listened to I love ‘Ambitious Girl’, but I got more attached the ‘ Love Hate’ song. I mean you’ve gotta love how this song begins with sound of a street nearby, a car moving and some hooting noise, as Wale walks on set to the band set up right next to Sam Dew, as Sam begins to sing as he snaps his finger gradually raising his voice. For me this just gets my goose bumps up already.
According to genius.com this song describes a love-hate relationship, an interpersonal relationship involving simultaneous or alternating emotions of love and hate – something particularly common when emotions are intense. It’s a passive-aggressive type of love. The love hate relationship he’s referring to is most likely the music industry.
This love hate thing is the kind of passive aggressive relationship you could have with those who are closest to you. Ever been in a state where you know you are loved by someone but they keep making you feel like they don’t but then again pick you up when you are down and raise you up.
In this song Wale goes on and on about his life and he beat the odds to get where he is now. He appreciates his up bringing and where he grew up for what he is and what he is not. He talks about his journey in the music industry and how he has lost friends on the way, he wishes they could also be up the ladder as he is going. He thanks God that he didn’t take the wrong direction as his friends did , lest he would have lost his pathway to his living his dreams.
This song got me thinking a lot about my life and the struggles I have been so far. So many friends and relationships I have lost on the way and was so lost about them but came to the realization that they were all for my good. You may never be appreciated by your own but that doesn’t mean you need to stop. Never loose sight of your dreams and ambitions no matter what.
I know I wasn’t inspired much in the writing but this song will sure get you up on your feet….
