Singer, songwriter, producer, poet,…the list goes on. Mereba is what I would call a relevant artist in today’s times. Even though I don’t like categorising anyone I would go as far as to say that she is like the female version of Frank Ocean. And the visuals to her album “The Jungle Is The Only Way Out” are attesting to that.
This album is filled with blooming wisdom carefully woven into the most beautiful soundscapes enlightened by her angelic voice. She really had me with the intro “more” where she lists all the things she (and really each one us us) should do more of like writing, listening to your inner voice, being passionate, giving unconditional love, not caring about what other people say and walking away from everything that’s no longer serving you.
And listening to the album you will realize that every single song contains valuable lessons that Mereba is generously sharing with us. So here’s a list of the songs and contained life lessons.
The truly important things in life are hidden treasures that can’t be bought with money.
Know your worth, leave the things behind that don’t serve you on your journey.
The hard times shape you into what you are destined to be. Listen to your intuition.
dodging the evil
Resist temptation, stay focused on what you want because what you focus on, you become.
Heatwave (feat. 6LACK)
Racism is real.
There is a difference between living and truly being alive.
Don’t let anything take you away from what you’re passionate about.
on the rocks
Nothing really loved is lost. (direct quote)
Real love that opens you up to another dimension exists.
Don’t deceive yourself and don’t let yourself be deceived by anyone else.
Sandstorm (feat. JID)
Relationships should help you grow, not tie you down.
Time is the most precious thing we have.
Below you find the beautiful visuals, I promise it will be worth the 7 minutes of your day. Enjoy!
