about

For the past couple of years prior to recording, I found myself living in complete fear. I would have so much anxiety about things that have never happened, and probably never will. I started meditating, and going to therapy, and I had to learn how to cope with my thoughts & feelings instead of letting my fears take over. I was searching for freedom and peace and wanted to make a bold anthem to really uplift myself. I felt trapped in a box, typecast, and pigeon holed. 'Fearless' became a resistance against societal views and norms against what people think Black women should be. We are multifaceted beings, and I really wanted to express that with my new music.

lyrics

FEARLESS

Verse
I can fear the pain
But strength feels better
I can fear the pressure
But that's how this diamond was made
I can fear the stress
But chasing my demons feel better
And it keeps them running keep running keep running

Pre-Chorus
When I think I'm folding
I gotta get bolder
And not let fear get the best of me
I'll do it afraid
Even if I'm shaking
And then I'll begin to see

Chorus
I can feel all my walls come down
Take a deep breath it all gets better
I can see everything so clear
You can't be fearless without fear

Verse
I can fear the rain
But getting wet feels better
I can fear the storm
But my bolt of lightning strikes down
I can fear adventure
Huh! But I'm a go getter
And my feet keep running keep running keep running

Pre-Chorus
When I think I'm folding
I gotta get bolder
And not let fear get the best of me
I'll do it afraid
Even if I'm shaking
And then I'll begin to see

Chorus
I can feel all my walls come down
Take a deep breath it all gets better
I can see everything so clear
You can't be fearless without fear

Bridge
I'm not gonna fear your bubble
I'm not gonna fear your shame

I'm not gonna fear your bubble
I'm not gonna fear your shame
You can take your disrespect
Your empty box
Your cliché

I'm not gonna fear your bubble
I'm not gonna fear your shame
You can take your disrespect
Your empty box
Your cliché

Chorus
I can feel all my walls come down
Take a deep breath it all gets better
I can see everything so clear
You can't be fearless without fear

I can feel all my walls come down
Take a deep breath it all gets better
I can see everything so clear
You can't be fearless without fear
