Pray for you- Jhené Aiko

So, if you did not know, I am a lover of music. Lately, all I have been listening to is praise and worship, but I had someone convince me to listen Jhené Aiko’s new album, Chilombo, and I fell in love. I really enjoyed her last album, Trip, so I don’t know why I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this one. Just like I have a monthly fashion post, I am going to start a monthly music post. I contemplated which song from the album I would write about and then this album came into my life. 

I am going to list a few of my favorites songs from Chilombo in the order in which they appear on the album: Triggered, None of Your Concern, Speak, B.S., P*$$y Fairy, Born Tired, Love, 10K Hours, Summer 2020, Mourning Doves, Pray for You, Lightening & Thunder, Magic Hour and Party for Me. 

Okay I think I listed practically the whole album, lol. Well, that was pointless…. 

You can see how hard it was for me to pick one song but I had to choose this song because it is the most relatable and mature…you guessed it, “Pray for You.” I think once a month, I have to be very vulnerable, but here we go. When I first heard the song, I was like YES!!!! I know that feeling all too well.It takes a lot of maturity to pray for someone who hurt you, or even to wish them well after the pain they’ve caused. But once you get to that point, you know you have truly forgiven the person, moved on and that you have grown. That is where I am today, and I can truly say that I pray for the people who have hurt me, be it intentionally or unintentionally. I love song lyrics so I have included them in this post for you to read; however, go listen to Jhené Aiko’s new album Chilombo and enjoy her beautiful soul, mind and voice. 

Pray for you by Jhené Aiko 


The feeling’s finally mutual
I’m ready to let you know
Don’t wanna see you no more
I’m ready to let this go

But never will I ever not wish you well
Though we’re not together, God bless you still
It’s gonna get better, I know it will
Just hope you know, I still

I’ll pray for you, I’ll pray for you
I’ll pray for you, I’ll pray for you

I pray you find your confidence
Pray you find a confidant, pray you get everything that you want
Pray you get everything that I could not give to you
I know that it may seem weird to you

But never will I ever not wish you well
Though we’re not together, God bless you still
It’s gonna get better, I know it will
Just hope you know, I still
I’ll pray for you, I’ll pray for you
I’ll pray for you, I’ll pray for you
I’ll pray

Till next time. 

Love always,
