India Arie - Better Way

On the surface this song is about New Orleans, but in reality it goes so much deeper. We’ve had a president who was elected on the power of hope who has managed to break every promise he made to us in the space of a month. Sure, he limited a few rich people to a bonus of $500,000 a year. Doesn’t seem to compute to the rest of us who elected him on the promise of a better way. Good song with a great beat, perfect for a hump day dance party. Shoutouts for River Rise (“I would sit for hours and listen to the sky”), and Beautiful Day (“I’m gonna do my part and make this a positively beautiful day”). India Arie
