This week’s Music Wednesday pick is “Simple” by India Arie!
Acoustic Soul is India Arie’s debut album, which was released in 2001. This awesome project was nominated for seven Grammy Awards in 2002, including “Album of the Year” and “Best R&B Album”.
There are many favorite India Arie tracks from this album, including “Video”, “Brown Skin”, and “Ready For Love”. However, it’s “Simple” (track #12) that makes me smile immediately as the first musical note plays. This song brings me joy, as the loving lyrics accompany the upbeat and funky instrumentation. I hear birds singing and foresee me and my guy holding hands, walking through the park when I listen to “Simple”.
