CareFree Black Girl Song of the Week | Alright by Kendrick Lamar

I would be lying if I said I had the perfect life. I am blessed and extremely happy where I am, but I definitely aspire to more. There are days when I wake up and I just get so overwhelmed and feel like the world is crashing on me. I get so emotionally shut off and isolate myself for a bit. As a carefree black girl, however, I always try to find the good in everything. While I acknowledge my situation and know that I can work my way through it, I’m going to focus on the positive for a minute.

I was riding through my city last night on my way home after hanging with some friends and I started to think about everything in my life that I’m uncomfortable with. Everything that I wish I could change and this song came on and while I sat and really listened to the lyrics it really spoke to me and I thought this would be my anthem for the rest of the year. Hearing Kendrick belt “It’s gon be alright” over and over again really set in with me because it will be alright.

  1. Fellow carefree black girl here. I’ve been turned off by hip hop for a while because of some of the sexist lyrics. I’m more of an indie/alternative girl now. But maybe I’ll give Kendrick a try.
