Love is a topic that not very many artists choose to rap or sing about no more. During these times, not too many people take love seriously. Everybody is so focused on trying to be a savage with no feelings, that if you show you have any feelings it makes you look weak. Having feelings does not make you look weak, even the toughest person eventually has their breaking point. I have been told before that I don’t show emotion but the truth is I do have a sensitive side. I guess holding things in and not really showing emotion is something I got from my pops. However, making music is the best way I express myself because it helps me clear my mind.

When I wrote the song “Smile” I had one goal in mind and that was to get off my chest about the feelings I had for a special woman. Normally I don’t write a lot of love songs but this was one that I had to write. Regardless if it makes me look vulnerable or not, I know there is someone else out there who may need the motivation to express the love they have for someone too. Some of the best songs are about personal experiences. People tend to appreciate when an artist is willing to share what is in their heart. When I first heard the instrumental, the concept came to me instantly and I knew it will fit perfectly.

During the time, when I was writing the song she was heavily on my mind. I believe when someone is on your mind, it usually means they belong there. It is up to you to found out if they should be in your life or not. Who knows this could be a sign from God, because if I would have written a totally different song I don’t think it would turn out as good. You never really can predict the outcome all you can do is put your best foot forward and let God take care of the rest. The universe has a way of bringing things into existence when you speak on what your heart desires. For anyone who is out there in love with someone, be sure to let them know. You never know you may be the reason they smile.
