What makes a song appealing? Is the melody of the song, or rhythms within the song? What about the hooks or the chords. These elements are all extremely important and make many songs popular. But one factor seems to take a backseat to all those incredible elements: the lyrics.
The people who make music have an obligation to give there listeners moral lyrics.
What are good examples of positive moral music? Take this song, Intentional by Travis Greene:

Many music lovers are aware that several popular songs in hip hop are sampled from other songs in funk and soul. However, many of the songs that are sampled are not easily noticed. In 2009, Million Dollar Bill was a single released by the late great Whitney Houston. The song was written and produced by Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz, who sampled the 1976 R&B song We’re Getting Stronger by Loleatta Holloway. The song keeps all of the same musical progressions and the bassline. The modern take on the production and the new melody are the most notable changes to the song. Beatz and Keys took a unique take on an school groove to create a brand new hit for a legendary singer in Whitney Houston.
Young R&B artist, Jorja Smith released her debut album Lost and Found on June 8, 2018. On June 11, the English singer performed a Tiny desk concert for NPR music and was absolutely sensational. Accompanied by a four piece band of keyboard, bass, guitar, and drums, Smith performed “On my mind” and “Teenage Fantasy” from the album. She ended her concert with her first release “Blue Lights”. Smith has been on the rise since the release of the song “Blue Lights” in 2016, that was released on her SoundCloud. If you are a fan of smooth R&B music or jazzy pop music, I would encourage you to check out Jorja Smith’s Lost and Found.
