Estelle and Jussie Smollett are exceptional in this song. The first time I heard “Conqueror” I thought to myself, “This is my anthem.” I have a playlist of My Life Anthems on YouTube and this song quickly earned its place on it. This song is about overcoming obstacles and disregarding the people who judge you. It is about all the things individuals go through to fight norms and what is expected of them. It is about accepting your mistakes and making the most of those mistakes by not giving up and moving forward and onward. This song is beautiful because anyone can be a conqueror in their own way. The lyrics are posted below with my favorite parts bolded. What are you favorite parts of “Conqueror” by Estelle?
“Life is like a big merry-go-round, you’re up and then down, going in circles trying to get to where you are. Everybody’s been counting you out, but where are they now? Sitting in the same old place, just faces in the crowd. We all make mistakes, you might fall on your face, but you gotta get up![Chorus:] I’d rather stand tall than live on my knees, ’cause I am a conqueror, and I won’t accept defeat! Try telling me no, one thing about me is I am a conqueror, I am a conqueror! Ooh oh”
Who else is on that Empire grind right now?! I’m so sad the season finale is already this Wednesday, but thank you FOX for making it a 2-hour finale full of drama, power, lust, and music… but above all… music.
