    Beyoncés musikvideo med låten Spirit tar avstamp i Afrika. Den är full av bildsymbolik om människans uppvaknande och särskilt de afrikanska folkens resning, även om texten fokuserar på själens medvetenhet. I den andra delen av samma video sjunger Beyoncé låten Bigger. Här är ditt uppvaknande åter i centrum: “Bigger than the picture they framed us to see. But now we see it”.

    Ofta kan man i kommersiella produktioner som tex i Lejonkungen (2019) se djupare budskap förmedlas. Om vi filosofiskt därför kan acceptera att djupare budskap endast kan nå stora mängder av människor genom kommersiella produktioner kanske vi enklare kan acceptera att intresset av att tjäna pengar även kan ha en kärna av något större.

    If you feel insignificant, you better think again
    Better wake up because you’re part of something way bigger
    You’re part of something way bigger
    Not just a speck in the universe
    Not just some words in a bible verse
    You are the living word
    Ahh, you’re part of something way bigger
    Bigger than you, bigger than we
    Bigger than the picture they framed us to see
    But now we see it
    And it ain’t no secret, no
    Understand the truth ’bout that question in your soul
    Look up, don’t look down, then watch the answers unfold
    Life is your birthright, they hid that in the fine print
    Uh, take the pen and rewrite it
    Step out your estimate
    Step in your essence and know that you’re excellent
    Rise (rise), the spirit is teachin’
    Oh, I’m not just preachin’, I’m takin’ my own advice
    Let mama let you know (let you know)
    Mama’s just tryin’, I can’t get no days off
    I don’t get no days off
    Truly, I’m feelin’ it, I had to say that thing twice
    Tryin’ to be a good wife
    Still really hard, I can’t lie
    But I promised you I will fight, so I fight
    If you feelin’ frustrated and (oh)
    You’re sinkin’, I’m jumpin’ in (oh)
    Forgiveness is key because we’re fightin’ something way bigger
    You’ll never lose, we are winners
    I’ll be the roots, you be the tree
    Pass on the fruit that was given to me
    Legacy, ah, we’re part of something way bigger
    Bigger, you’re part of something way bigger
    Bigger than you, bigger than we
    Bigger than the picture they framed us to see
    Legacy, oh, you’re part of something way bigger
    Let love be the water
    I pour into you and you pour into me
    There ain’t no drought here
    Bloom into our actual powers
    I’ll be your sanctuary, you just don’t know it yet
    You just don’t know it yet
    No matter how hard it gets
    You got my blood in ya
    And you’re gonna rise
    You’re part of something way bigger
    You’re part of something way bigger
    Bigger than you, bigger than me
    Bigger than the picture they framed us to be, yeah
    Ooh, ooh, you’re part of something way bigger
    Understand the truth ’bout that question in your soul (bigger)
    Look up, don’t look down, then watch the answers unfold (bigger)
    Life is your birthright, they hid that in the fine print
    Take the pen and rewrite it
    Step out your estimate
    Step in your essence and know that you’re excellent
    Rise, the spirit is teachin’
    Oh, I’m not just preachin’, I’m takin’ my own advice
    If you feel insignificant, you better think again
    Better wake up ’cause you’re part of something way bigger
    You’re part of something way bigger
    I’ll be the roots, you be the tree
    Pass on the fruit that was given to me
    Legacy, ah, we’re part of something way bigger
