Kendrick Lamar’s i reached the top fifty most played Spotify songs within weeks of its release nationwide, and in the top 100 worldwide. The positive message and unique sound of this  song makes it a one I could get behind. Few songs have such a simple clear message: love yourself.

It seems so simple, but it is rare to find a song that is universal in both its lyrics and its video. The recent release of the lyric video shows a diverse collection of people around the world holding

up hearts with their hands.

Repeating “I love myself” nearly twenty times, the song addresses multiple contemporary issues while conveying a positive message with a catchy tune. An upbeat piano drive combined with a techno spin provides a distinct sound accompanied by an unassuming name, simply the letter an album cover with hands in the shape of hearts.
