Happy Birthday J. Cole.

Crooked Smile- J. Cole 

Crooked Smile was released in 2013. This song is about how people in the world try to change the way they truly are and look in order to be acknowledged. He was more specific on a women's struggle of putting on make up and wearing fake nails, hair, and eyebrows. Taking a long time just to get ready and having so much pressure to look impressive. "Staring at the mirror but not realizing what's really wrong no need to fix what God already put his paint brush on." Meaning that what's really wrong is how you're not embracing your inner beauty because you're to busy trying to live up to societies view of beauty and to get the attention you want from that one guy you truly want but doesn't want you back instead of just accepting yourself the way you were made. In his song he said "love yourself, girl, or nobody will." This lyric in specific is something that I truly stand for I genuinely believe that us women should find ourselves and what we're worth before trying to find someone to love us. Once you find out how much you're worth you won't let someone treat you the way you don't deserve being treated and you won't depend your happiness completely on them because you have confidence in yourself. He said "Society tries to tell you there's something about you that makes you inferior to the images they're trying to put out there. The song is really me embracing my imperfections and trying to get other people to embrace theirs." To all the girls who are insecure about anything because you've been bullied or because you wish you looked a certain way keep your head up high you are genuinely beautiful and one day there will be someone who will find you unbelievably beautiful and will love you for who you are. Remember to always love yourselves ladies!  //


  1. J Cole has a song called "No Role Modelz" and that's has to be my favorite song. But, listening to him i didn't know what that album was about it meant.

  2. I heard many time this song but never really analyze the lyrics. I love that you did that, every time I listen to it now I will think about what you said. However, I think that it doesn't apply only to women many man also struggle with keeping up the image society sets for them.
