today at midnight, Beyonce dropped an album that the world is aTwitter about. her stunt was releasing the album – exclusively on iTunes – with visual cues associated for each song, and then some. her explanation of the album is nothing short of awesome:
i see music, its more than just what i hear; when im connected to something i immediately see a visual or a series of images that are tied to a feeling or an emotion, a memory from my childhold, thoughts about life, my dreams or fantasies. and they’re all connected to the music.
if you haven’t figured it out by now, this pop artist is one of the few that makes my heart happy. not only does Beyonce make me proud to be a woman, but she makes me want to be a better artist. her sentiment when describing her creative process ‘sings’ to me as she states, “the visions in my head is what makes it mine.”
whatever you are working on – whether it’s a #suedle, a blog post, a book or another project – make it yours. own it, in all its beauty (or not). recall every minute of effort that you put into it and make it worth more than the outcome – make it worth the lessons you learned too.
