Work of Art

Album: Work of Art (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • The title track of Deborah Cox's Work of Art album is representative of what she wanted the record to reflect. The singer explained to The Boombox: "[The] song is about empowerment and self-love. If you're feeling at your lowest low, it's a song that you can put on and just be empowered. I kind of feel like that's what's missing. There's a lot of mess out there, and you gotta balance it. A little bit of message music ain't gonna hurt. I wanted this album to reflect something positive."

    "The song says, 'You were made to shine just as bright as any other star in the sky; you are a work of art.' That's what I want this album to reflect."
