WMN Loves: Emeli Sande – Kingdom Coming

This story about a set of parents trying to find a sense of normality, through the struggles of working and caring for their family, is such a beautiful take on reflecting on your parents lives as they get older. Often it’s easy to class your parents as ‘superhuman’ but realistically they’re just trying to build a good life for their children, themselves and the future. I think these lyrics are the pinnacle of the song:

Fuck that, Mummy
You’re an angel, and this ain’t no place, for an angel

Wretch 32’s verse on his mother and her illness really ties the song together. This song is a tribute to all parents/legal guardians working tirelessly for a better life.
