HOW BEYONCE ‘SPIRIT-UALLY’ MINISTERS TO THE BROKEN AND BATTERED (REVIEW)

I recently went through the Lyrics of the song “Spirit” by Beyonce and all I could say was- when sweet melody meets insightful lyrics the Spirit rises to the light in the sky. Have you ever been broken, battered, but still not wanting to give up? If yes, then Beyonce’s “Spirit” is the real deal for you because “while you are tremblin‘, that’s when the magic happens”.

Spirit by Beyonce is the lead single on the album THE LION KING: THE GIFT, also the soundtrack for the 2019 Walt Disney Pictures film THE LION KING. it is a very motivational and insightful song which teaches strength and tenacity. The song is not just commendable but recommendable for anyone with a fighting spirit and wants to keep the flame burning through the nights.

The lyrics tell the story of a rookie who has to battle the challenges of life to become great- “so go into far off land, and be the one with the great i am, i am; Boy becomes man”.

The lines are very coherently arranged, with the first verse revealing an incitation- “the wind is talking for the first time…paintin’ pictures of paradise”. The second verse builds on this by elaborating challenges and discouragements faced by the contender “and the waters crashing, trying to keep your head up high”. As mentioned before the singer encourages us to go further, beyond the shore, despite the storm and waves because “while you’re tremblin’ that’s when the magic happens”.

There was the use of figures of speech such as imagery, personification “the wind talking for the first time”. There was no unnecessary repetition of words and the lyrics were not too wordy, a number of words needed to effectively convey the message were used- good diction.

This indeed is a great lyric. I would rate the lyrical content of the song 5 stars. It is also very healthy for a child to listen to and does not include any vulgar word nor explicit language. 

If you are looking for a song with motivational lyrical content, good for you and healthy for your soul, then do not hesitate to download and keenly listen to Beyonce’s Spirit- the cheer for the spirit.
