One of the reasons I love music so much, is its ability to alter emotions. Any time I don’t like the way I feel or if just want to feel even better, I know exactly what music to turn to.
One of the songs I turn to quite a bit when I want to feel motivated is NF’s “Remember This”.
Not only can you feel that he’s pouring out his heart and soul speaking from his own experiences, his lyrics like “Handouts create lazy people I’m not impressed with” which he opens this song with, & “These people gon’ tell you that you won’t ever make it
Then when you do, they gon’ say they knew you were goin’ places ” are hard hitting truths that ignite something within you.
“Remember This” opens with a mellow melodic female chorus that, believe it or not, is Nate himself singing it. He changes the pitch in post production. Something he does often in his music.
The chorus plays 3 times over the 4 minute track with each of the 3 verses starting with NF calmly rapping powerful lyrics that build up to a big “drop”. With NF then picking up intensity until the melodic chorus comes back in. Something I feel brings balance to the song. It’s also useful while working out, I pick up my intensity when the song does, then rest a little during the calmer moments.
Alright enough from me, give the song a listen below & get inspired to do something great with the rest of the day! – JB
