Musiq Soulchild penned a song with the lyrics, “Soon as I get my money right, I’ma take good care you.”

While the neo-soul singer talked about the financial responsibility of supporting a romantic partner, there is a conviction in the song centered around taking the necessary steps toward financial health.

The internet is bombarded daily with thoughts and ideas on obtaining wealth and what it means to get in your financial bag. And with the freedom the internet provides, there is little to no guidance on who can share what type of information.
