Great things are born from dreams and ambitions pursued only for the sake of the creation itself. For those who lament the intentions of fame and of money, Anthony Hamilton is writing our saving song. As a songwriter, he consciously writes only for the sake of his music, and this comes through in how genuine, honest and raw his songs are. And he’s got a shit ton of talent to back that up.
“Prayin’ for you/Superman” is compilation of two parts, each with a distinct character. Fast paced and energized, the upbeat beginning to this song is easy to groove to. Anthony Hamilton then gently and skillfully transitions us into the smooth and slow second half, finishing this song with much more depth, sobriety, and even a bit of darkness.
If you have eight minutes to give yourself, give yourself this song. It’s Monday; you deserve it.
