The 'Own It' hitmaker raps about encouraging stars, before bringing out the iconic outro lyrics:
"I can make world come true, all my dreams will see me through/ and if that won't get me down, my dreams will turn things all around/
With a smile upon my face, I can see a better place/doesn't matter what may come my way, believe me now, I will win some day."
