Songs You Should Hear: Nov. 5, 2021
Why You Should Listen: Hailing all the way from Sydney, Lije. comes to us from across the world with a universal message…
“I just wanted to remind myself that money and success should never change the way I am or who I am,” Lije. said. “I think I’ve seen too many times, where success can go to people’s heads and make them forget who they are and where they came from. So, in saying that, this song is a great reminder for me to do the opposite.”
Take those sentiments and place them over a fresh, neo-soul soundscape, and it makes for a tune we can get behind!
