Chris Brown - Look At Me Now Lyrics
It was recorded for the soundtrack to the film of the same name. It is a power ballad in which its protagonist implores an ex-lover to "take a look at me now", knowing that reconciliation is "against all odds" while considering it worth trying.
The single reached No. The song has been covered by several singers, some versions of which have been successful in both the US and UK markets.
The song has twice reached No. Collins was approached to write the title song to the film Against All Odds while it was still in its "rough cut form". Director Taylor Hackford flew into Chicago to see one of the band's concerts. Collins watched the movie on a videocassette recorder in his hotel room and agreed to appear on the soundtrack.
On episode of This American Life , "Break Up", Collins relays that the song was inspired and written shortly after the breakup between him and his first wife. In the interview he says that the divorce transformed him from being a musician into also being a lyricist.
The song was first included on a Collins album on the compilation Hits , and it also appeared on his compilation Love Songs: A Compilation Old and New A live performance of the song also appears on the Serious Hits Hackford, who previously used a song for the American drama film An Officer and a Gentleman , planned the same for the neo-noir film Against All Odds ,  which is a remake of Out of the Past.
When he signed with Atlantic Records , he was provided with a roster of artists, among whom Collins was chosen to render the film's theme song based on the quality of his voice. Writing for the soundtrack's review, Allmusic editor Heather Phares claimed that the film is best remembered for the inclusion of Collins' "classic theme song". At the Academy Awards ceremony, Collins was not invited to sing his song on stage and instead sat in the audience as dancer Ann Reinking gave a mostly lip-synced vocal performance accompanied by a dance routine.
Reinking's performance was poorly received by critics from the Los Angeles Times and People ,   as well as by Collins himself in a Rolling Stone interview. When another song Collins performed for a movie, " Separate Lives ", was being nominated for an Academy Award , in interviews about the original snub by the Academy for "Against All Odds", Collins would jokingly say "the hell with him - I'm going up too", referring to what he would do if the Stephen Bishop-written song were to win the award.

The video for the Carey version of the song, directed by Paul Misbehoven, consists of a montage of clips of Carey singing the song from her various Rainbow World Tour stops to cullings from her Homecoming special. Danyel Smith of Entertainment Weekly wrote: "Listeners with an eye on the tabloids could read her close, ringing interpretation of Phil Collins' hit, "Against All Odds Take a Look at Me Now ," as a postmortem on her bittersweet affair with Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter and a poignant evocation of the couple's shared mixed-race heritage "You're the only one who really knew me at all".
Times' Elysa Gardner called this cover "surprisingly faithful, forthright" and "she resists her tendency to over-embellish notes and focuses on what really matters: the melody and lyrics. She delicately ascends the sparely accompanied first verses—but alas, that damn drum roll soon sounds and the bouffant strings and vocal gymnastics ensue. Carey rereleased the song in collaboration with Irish boyband Westlife.

Look At Me Now Lyrics - Wild Party Soundtrack
It is performed by Keke Palmer as Kadee Worth. Oh, oh, oh Beauty in the mirror You see what I see I can see all that you want from me I hear something strong and It sounds like my name But if I answer Are you talking to me? You say the sun's brighter The moonlight's behind ya The world's a playground Pick a ride and you'll see Sometimes you go up and Sometimes you go down and Sometimes you must fly So that you can be free. When you feel you took your last breath I promise you got more left There's a chance if you take it Don't be afraid to just say Look, look at me now look at me now I'm starting to be stronger There's no time to stop now, no. Oh I'm touching the clouds I'm flying high and higher I'm not trying to come down Can you look at me now? Can you look at me now? Nothing's impossible The spark is in you Light up the whole world and just look, look, look at me now. Yesterday's gone now Today's a new day Tomorrow's my future And it starts here today The beauty inside Is coming alive I'm so happy it did, oh. When I look up at the stars Even though they may be far away It's okay I can reach them Won't ever change who I am I'll make the world understand me From beginning to end to end, oh. Look Look, look at me now look at me now I'm starting to be stronger There's no time to stop now, no.
