#thatPOWER - Will.i.am feat. Justin Bieber


The Experience:
Who am I and where am I going? In #thatPOWER the answer is Will.i.am, and I'm going places. Although we don't know exactly where Will.i.am and Justin are headed, the song is a great experience of what it feels like to be energized, alive and ready to move...

Music Video:
The music video may be a little low on message, but you realize really quickly that it's not aiming to add anything to the lyrics. It's just looking to be cool. Very cool. And it scores.


My Take:
We all have our dreams and projects. We want to get somewhere. The hitch is that getting places is never easy. Especially if those places are really worth getting to. So we need some source of power and strength to make it through the long haul.

#thatPOWER is about the strength. About getting fired up and staying that way. About getting stronger. But even supposing we all plug our own goals and dreams into the song, something is still missing. Where does all that power come from? Because power doesn't grow on trees and doesn't last nearly as long as we wish it would.

Ask Yourself:
What or who is the source of your power? Will it always be there for you? What are you using your power for?

LYRICS:


[Hook 1: Justin Bieber]
And oh, i'm alive, i'm alive, i'm alive
And oh, I can fly, I can fly, I can fly
And oh, i'm alive, i'm alive, i'm alive
And i'm loving every second minute hour bigger better stronger power

[Hook 2: Will.i.am]
I got that power
I got that power
I got that power
Power power power

They call me will-A
Stay so cool, i'm chilly
I done made that medley
On my way to that bedly
Used to have a piggy bank, but now I got that bigger bank
Who who cares what the haters state
They hate on me cause i'm doin' what they can't

I stay on that hustle, I flex that little muscle
Hate to bust your bubble
I'm on that other level
Imma take it higher and high and high and higher
I stay and buy attire
Keeping burning like that fire

And oh, i'm alive, i'm alive, i'm alive
And oh, I can fly, I can fly, I can fly
And oh, i'm alive, i'm alive, i'm alive
And i'm loving every second minute hour bigger better stronger power

[beat break]

I got that power
I got that power
I got that power
Power power power

Yes yes yes y'all feeling funky fresh yall
Work to be the best y'all
We're good under pressure y'all
Been through all that stress y'all
Get this off my chest y'all
Made it out them progects with this project, that's progress y'all

I did it for my mama
I told her when I was younger
That imma be that number
One day i'll be that number 1
I take it higher and high and high and higher
I stay and buy attire
Keeping burning like that fire

Whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger
So imma get stronger
Comin' like a battlin' ram, battlin' ram
I'm knockin', knockin' down the door again, door again
Comin' like a battlin' ram, battlin' ram
I'm knockin', knockin' down the door again, door again

And on, i'm alive, i'm alive, i'm alive
And on, I can fly, I can fly, I can fly
And on, i'm alive, i'm alive, i'm alive
And i'm loving every second minute hour bigger better stronger power

[beat break]

I got that power
I got that power
I got that power
Power power power

And i'm loving every second minute hour bigger better stronger power

And i'm loving every second minute hour bigger better stronger power

[beat break]
