Who Could Love Me Like That – Angel Austin

Who Could Love Me Like That is a song written and performed by Angel Austin when, after a long while, she heard “the music” again. It was shortly after meeting with local D.J., R.J. Johnson at North Austin Influencers Meetup, and being inspired by the conversation that he had with Angel and her husband, Kenneth, that this song was born. During this time, Angel also had a chance conversation with a friend from college. They hadn’t really talked in awhile, but for some reason, they connected while recounting all of the things they experienced in school; bad choices in men, promiscuity, exhibiting a great lack of self-love and self-respect, self-loathing due to being obese, and so much more. They also testified to each other about how their lives had changed; how they were no longer the sad, desperate women who longed for the approval of their fathers and who sought it out in men who weren’t good for them. As strange as it sounds, during the night after their conversation, the lyrics came to Angel. They literally woke her up in the early morning hours before dawn and the melody came. Angel grabbed her phone, sang what she heard, and emailed the lyrics and the audio to R.J. in the wee hours of the morning. R.J. took it and ran with it.
