Jill Scott is by far one of my favorite artists. I can listen to all 4 of her studio albums straight through and relate to almost every emotion she sings about. I have always loved this song. BUT NOW I completely appreciate this song because I’m graduating Rice University with a Bioengineering, B.S., I’m smart, I’m beautiful, I’m resilient, self-sufficient, confident… I guess I’m what people would consider independent. However, I know the next time I fall in love, my man will appreciate that I’m all these things BUT know that I need him and love him at the same time too.
