Breakout artist, Toulouse dropped his sure-to-be successful single, “It is Well” last week. If you are unfamiliar with the Nigerian turned New Yorker artist, you may have heard his song “No Running From Me,” featured on the Fifty Shades Darker Original motion picture soundtrack or his song “ I Will Follow You” from Apple’s Balloons commercial.
Toulouse has been extremely busy, producing hit after hit, and I can honestly say there is not a song I don’t love of his. This time, Toulouse shed light on those suffering. Toulouse shared on Twitter the inspiration behind the beautiful song.
“It Is Well” is inspired by those who are suffering silently, but still put one foot in front of the other every day to get to the finish line.
The beginning verse begins with emotional lyrics,
“I weep for the world, for the worldWhere we sleep, the tears fallAs a crystal of a different saltBut we gotta get up for the lonelyWe gotta smile, yeah, for the kidsLike everything’s okay”
The song echoes an old hymn called “It is Well,” which resonated deeply with Toulouse. The song was written and produced by the artist himself. The lyrics are not only beautiful, but the instrumental beat, combined with his voice is very soothing and hypnotic.
