Video – India.Arie
The Grammy-nominated “Video” was from India.Arie’s 2002 debut album, Acoustic Soul. The song informs girls, teenagers, young women, and grown men to love themselves despite what other people think about you. It can be categorized as a “song with meaning,” because it addresses self-esteems issues and lack of confidence. Women must learn to love themselves before they can expect anyone to love them back. Love yourself with all of your heart. In the song, India says, “I’m not the average girl from your video/And I ain’t built like a supermodel/But I learned to love myself unconditionally/Because I am a queen.
