This week’s music video is a feel-good number from way back in the year 2000. I remember VH1 used to play this video a lot back when I was in seventh grade (back when I was a VH1 junkie and the channel’s motto was still “Music First”), which was a very self-conscious time for me. I really don’t want to go into detail about how much I’d learned to hate myself at that time, but I will say this much: the great thing about this song is that it not only declares the singer’s own-self esteem, but it does so in a way that actively encourages self-esteem in others. Which is a really big deal, since it seems that most works of self-praise (especially those done for and/or about women) imply that one has to put others down before one can feel good about oneself. But self-esteem need not be a zero-sum game, as India.Arie so effortlessly demonstrates with “Video”. Enjoy.
