( ENSPIRE Music ) Call Me Ace Embraces Healthy Black Love in “Love Goals” Ft. Taylor Taylor Video
ENSPIRE Contributor: Octavia Johnson
As an ode to his wife, Call Me Ace reflects on what it means for him and his life-partner to grind and achieve, both individually and together. Both are hard-working independent individuals that choose each other daily—intending to work—build a legacy, and the results are more than just bettering their own lives but, living with significance and enriching the lives of those around them. Their unbreakable bond is admirable, and with the help of guest feature, Taylor Taylor, Call Me Ace emphasizes that the real “goals” of their relationships are the ones they make with each other.
“Love is way more than just an emotion or feeling. It’s an action verb. It requires work and hustle—that is if you want it to last. My queen and I are committed to doing this work daily. Not just working in our professional careers, but loving each other as one flesh—growing, pruning, and supporting each other in every way possible. Pursuing our God-giving calling in unity. People may see us and want to frame ‘goals’ around the way we live our lives. But we’re not perfect, and marriage isn’t always a fairytale. Nonetheless, the journey of learning how to yield to and build with one another in harmony—being a blessing unto others in the process—that’s really all we’re focused on doing, day in and day out.” – Call Me Ace
