Review: "Love Me Like I Am" - FOR KING + COUNTRY x Jordin Sparks
The Christian Pop duo FOR KING + COUNTRY has just released their newest single, “Love Me Like I Am” with Jordin Sparks. This release is a new version of the single on their “What Are We Waiting For” album that was released earlier in March 2022. This popular track of theirs speaks for self-love and worth. The duo has stated, “It’s knowing in a world of faster, harder, more, sometimes your flawed misstep makes you loveable in an even truer way”. With a release date earlier this month, the track already has over 200,000 plays on Spotify. Jordin's powerful voice combined with FOR KING + COUNTRY'S powerful lyrics makes them a perfect match together. In "Love Me Like I Am" (feat. Jordin Sparks) listeners can belt alongside Jordin's powerhouse vocals and listen to beautiful piano melodies and mesmerizing three-way harmonies.
FOR KING + COUNTRY understands how influential the power of music can be on a person. The band makes music "with the hopes that other people will be moved, encouraged, and stirred to live a life for someone greater than themselves.” This is exactly what can be taken away from their new single. From start to finish this song is moving listeners with meaningful lyrics. The song opens with FOR KING + COUNTRY’S strong vocals with the lyrics “I am a little unstable, loose wire always getting tangled now”. As you get further into the song the perspective shifts as they sing the chorus “It's amazing that you can love me like I am” and “Even when I can’t you still love me like I am”. After the chorus listeners can hear Jordin sing, “ I am a little uneven in need of a little more healin’ now” she sings of “ feeling a little unfixable” until she joins in on the chorus. There may be a lot of people who have felt like they are different and unfixable like FOR KING + COUNTRY and Jordin sing in their verses. The track "Love Me Like I Am" serves as a reminder of being loved. The three of them are spreading a positive message through their music.
