In the wake of a sea of rumors about the demise of her marriage to Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith released a song of her own via Facebook this afternoon. “Burn” is a dark ballad, similar to a lot of the work she did with her band Wicked Wisdom a few years ago. Here’s the note that accompanies the song:
With the major losses we have experienced in the last few weeks…
We should remember…
Our lives are worth living fully.
Our risks are worthy.
Our mistakes are worthy.
Our traumas are worthy as well.
The very paths we are told not to
tread are the paths that hold the
keys to our deepest understanding of
love for our lives and ourselves.
Self love is the gateway to truly loving
We were born to be loved and to love…
Will, I love you.
Happy Valentine’s Day.
This is for you.
Sweet. Listen below:
