The Youth Experience

Villager’s “The First Day” is a song that encapsulates the whiplash of youth through a cacophony of sounds and levels boosted with youthful exuberance.

It’s the honesty of it that really gets to me. It doesn’t try and create symbolism for being young, confused, overwhelmed, and beautifully pure – the song just is.

It opens with a crackling unedited voice struggling to almost hold on to itself and builds into this smash of instruments, entertaining vocals, and a melody that throws you from one foot to the other like a kid experiencing love for the first time.

Villager has always been a follower of the odd folk sound – always experimenting and trying out new things, but what they’ve done with this sound experiments in a completely honest way. This song would be at home in a folk garage bands list of songs to play at the neighborhood show – it’s as much for youth as it sounds by the youth.

A masterstroke in emotional design in music, it’s niche yes, but hell if it isn’t good.

Have You Seen All The Sad Films?

New age melancholy gets a boost of electric sounds in this hyper-aware chill trap track.

There is this movement going around in the current culture of young adults that emphasizes the ability to be aware of one’s sadness or melancholy. Not to state that people flourish in their sadness, but rather than deny the feeling, they take it and thrust it into a form of productivity – whether that be watching and evaluating a sad film, creating a song, developing artwork, and so forth.

What “Feel” does, is it takes this awareness of sadness, this wallowing in it, and creates a comforting, possibly joyful, sound that carries you through that experience. It doesn’t shy away from the feeling of detachment or anxiety, but what it does is it very brilliantly wraps it up in a warm and snuggly chill pop sound that in all the possible ways helps you to feel!

Why do we like this?

Pietro is Irkid (one half of Go Hawaii). He has just released his first EP, Kohola, under the aforementioned moniker. The four tracks that constitute the EP are layered beautifully and give out a feeling of exploratory wonder and a child-like sense of curiosity. It’s quite pleasant.

The last and shortest of the quartet of songs is “Akureyri Shore.” The title is in reference to the northern Icelandic city. The melody has a slow, but, not at all boring pace, it progresses and changes around a constant and titillating sound, that starts almost at the first-minute mark, and then we hear it throughout the rest of the song. The first fifty seconds feel like its preparing, setting up what will be this gorgeous song.

Enjoy.

Why do we like this?

Like taking a dip in a cooling lagoon, this song is as good as floating along while the sun sinks after a warm day. The bugs make their final flight path home, the birds call out to their babies, the people are home, beer bottles opening, fires lit, what more does one need?

Havana Swim Club’s “Lagoon” has it all. We’ve got tropical tingles, 40s-era big band booms, and chillwave wiggles coming together in a way that makes the listener want to pay attention.

“Lagoon” marks the first in a series of singles to be released in advance of Havana Swim Club’s debut, full-length album.

Death By Stereo – Dead To Me Lyrics

How much is my life worth? Or was I dead at first? This world is spinning into nothing.

A world where noone cares. A world where noone dares. Please tell me that there is a reason.

Dead to me. Dead to you. In this world.

Am I losing my mind. My faith in this mankind. Will you please tell me I’m still trying.

They stand at your front door. They’re hungry and they’re poor. How could we stand here giving nothing?

Dead to me. Dead to you. In this world. Dead to me. Dead to you. In this world.

Hey, hey, hey, hey. Hey, hey, hey, hey. Hey, hey, hey, hey. Hey, hey, hey, hey. Go!

I just can’t feel anymore. Knocked to the world, down to the core. Down into the bone, straight through the heart. My will to live all torn apart.

Dead to me. Dead to you. In this world. Dead to me. Dead to you. In this world.

I see you die in my dreams. (Dead to me.) I look but there’s no exit. (Dead to you.) I lift myself from conscience. (In this world.) World!

Defleshed – Feeding Fatal Fairies Lyrics

Fate is to be found somewhere
and I am halfway there
If that is all for sure – there is no cure

And if I’m diehard to the core
Then will I live forever more
These are things that have occured
that’s at leat what I have heard

Time is spreading with the light
rapidly to fight
If that is all for sure – we are no more

Life-lines starting to hitch

And I know what they mean by the pitch

I’m feeding fatal fairies
And I’ll take what that carries

And if I’m diehard to the core
Then will I live forever more
These are things that I have heard
that’s at least what may occure

Oh, it’s basically a strategy
to practise death
and distributing tradegy

Wanna see a battie raise high to da sky
Look, yo girls, ladies

Wanna see a battie raise high to da sky

Die Antwoord – Doos Drunk Lyrics

Jack Parow? Daar’s die man nou!
Party, party, party, party… !
Hosh ja! Here maar ek’s in my poes in.
Dude ek’s moerefokken wasted.
Hello hoe lyk dit, ek en jy naked?

Kyk hier kyk hier
Fok jou, kom ons gaan koop ‘n vokken dop gou
Kom baby score my die Witblitz
Sit terug, vat ‘n fokken sluk van die Klipdrift.
Ah shut up you f*ckin bastard
Don’t f*ck around with the drunken master

Chorus
Doosdronk,

Happy, happy, happy, happy…

Repeat the chorus.

Party, party, party, party, party, party, party…
Party, party, party, party, party, party, party…

Darkseed – Ultimate Darkness Lyrics

Pride and credit
In a meaningless world
Don’t be greedy
For the wishes of the mob
Spinning round for dirt

Losing grip, but you’re not the only one
Here I am…
I’m alone and you are too
Silent night, wonderfully deaf and blind

Noise dies away, this stinking rebel of men
For this is darkness and stillness and peace

Darkness tonight
All your broken visions true
You are a stranger to this world, me too
Darkness today
Because this is our way
And the night it heals your tears and letdowns now

I’ve seen days so black
And will see more
Your pain and disdain
I know it so well…

Walk and smile cause you are not a dancer
Like those who dance to sounds of coins and gold
Not your world – primitive and rude

Noise dies away, this stinking rebel of men
For this is darkness and stillness and peace

Burning spirits rising high and I see
Yes I see, yes I see a flower in you
When I stare at you I see the dullness gone by
I am not alone

Dave Mason – Can’t Stop Worrying, Can’t Stop Loving Lyrics

Who am I talking to it’s just myself
I talk to the wall when I talk with someone else
Only a few that I met really knew
Why so many good things had so much abuse

I can’t stop from worrying
About the things we do
I can’t stop loving
Without it nothing would seem true

I’ve got my dreams about the way it’s gonna be
I’d share it all with someone real not make-believe
It sometimes gets hard to see the wood from the tree
But when things are right then no questions will I need

I can’t stop from worrying
About the things we do
I can’t stop loving
Without it nothing would seem true

The scenery’s changed but my feelings remain
Laughter and pain and love is still the same
Something worth having doesn’t come too easily
A man needs the challenge or a man couldn’t be

I can’t stop from worrying
About the things we do
I can’t stop loving
Without it nothing would seem true

YFN Lucci Named In 105 Count Racketeering Indictment Involving Bloods Gang

YFN Lucci was named a suspect in a massive racketeering case in Atlanta, which again put him under the microscope.

Urban Islandz reported in January of this year that YFN Lucci, real name Rayshawn Bennett, was arrested on charges of felony murder, aggravated assault, participation in street gang activity, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. In February, he was released after posting a $500,000 bond pending his trial for murder.

WSB-TV Atlanta is now reporting that YFN Lucci is among a dozen individuals named in a 75-page, 105 count indictment for racketeering involving a faction of the notorious Bloods gang. The indictment comes as Atlanta and its surrounding metro saw a sharp increase in violent crimes over the past several months.

“This indictment is unprecedented. Period. In Georgia,” Fulton County DA Fani Willis said. “There’s been a huge spike in violent crime. I made a commitment to bring the best and the brightest minds here, many of which you see sitting here right now so that we could deal with this issue of this violent crime.”

Atlanta Police Chief Rodney Bryant also weighs in on the indictment calling it a strong message sent to criminals no matter their status. “I think that it sends a significant message, a profound message that regardless of your status that the City of Atlanta and Fulton County in partnership is coming after you if you violate the crimes in our county, in our city,” Bryant said.

The murder charge that YFN Lucci was hit with earlier this year is a separate incident from this racketeering indictment. That charge stemmed from a shooting incident in Atlanta on December 10th last year in Atlanta where 28-year-old James Adams was shot and killed. Another man, 32-year-old Kevin Bright, was found suffering from gunshot wounds but survived.

Lucci’s attorney Drew Findling says the rapper is not a gang member and is innocent of all the allegations against him.

Authorities are also looking to have his bond revoked over suspected violation of the terms when he allegedly visited a studio and a strip club. So far, he remains free on bond.

50 Cent Confirms New Series ‘Confessions Of A Crime Queen’ Gets Green Light

50 Cent confirmed his new TV series Confessions Of A Crime Queen has been green light.

The iconic album that put 50 Cent on the map was Get Rich or Die Tryin’, and the rapper has stayed true to his motto. When his musical career slowed down, he found the next thing to bring in that paper, and as with just about anything he’s put his hands on, he was successful. You can now count 50 as a successful television producer as he will soon add another show to his already impressive string of flicks. This one is called Confessions Of A Crime Queen.

It’s a new true-crime anthology that he can add to his repertoire of productions that include the very successful Power, Power Book II: Ghost, Power Book III: Raising Kanan, For Life, and the upcoming BMF.

He broke the news on Instagram today that he’s been given the confirmation of the series to be produced on Discovery+. Online publication Deadline shared more about what to look out for in the upcoming series. According to them, each season will center around the life of a female “Crime Queen” who built a criminal empire before it all came crashing down. They also stated that a well-known actress considered A-list will portray the character who she will also study during the making of the show.

As he often does, 50 Cent took to Instagram to share his excitement with fans. “See this is the point you should realize I’m not playing, he captioned the post and added: “GREEN LIGHT GANG.”

He also revealed in another post that he’s moved from New York to Houston, probably to be closer to the filming of the shoot even though he didn’t explicitly say that. “Love NY, but i live in Houston now i’ll explain later,” he said before sharing a few screencaps from Deadline’s announcement.

Discovery also shared their excitement with getting the chance to work with the now in-demand television producer. Lisa Holme, the Group SVP Commercial Content and Strategy of Discovery+ said: “Discovery+ is delighted to partner with Curtis, G-Unit Film & Television, Goodbye Pictures and Lionsgate on this ambitious and innovative project. Combining our unparalleled home for original true crime content with his vision for how to tell these stories in a new way will give true crime fans a fresh perspective on the genre.”

DMX Goddaughter & Power Star Page Hurd Tribute Late Rapper

As the grief from DMX’s passing continues, actress Paige Hurd has broken her silence on her godfather’s untimely death.

As a child actor Paige Hurd starred in Cradle 2 the Grave alongside Dark Man X in 2003. They grew so close that the actress chose the rap star to be her adopted godfather. Since he passed away, Hurd has remained relatively quiet while grieving except for a throwback video she shared singing to Taylor Swift in the car while DMX threw in da-libs. The clip was a tribute to their great times and beautiful relationship.

Now Paige Hurd has come forward to publicly mourn the loss of her godfather, and she seems to be struggling. She posted photos of her and DMX with big smiles hugging it out with a lengthy, heartfelt caption. “7 days prior…This is was the last time we hugged, we danced, we held hands,” the melancholy post reads. “the last time we said I love you. the last time I would ever hear you scream PUMPKINNN. when we are together we are inseparable, & we DO NOT play about each other. I just can’t believe this was our goodbye.”

A post shared by Paige Audrey-Marie Hurd? (@thugginn)

She continued, “Shock has been my feeling the past month since I got the worst call in the middle of the night. The shock & grief is heavy, uncomfortable, and hard to express. I just don’t have much yet, forgive my silence. I’m trying but right now I don’t have the best words… I love you so much. I’m so proud to be your goddaughter. You are [a part] of my world and my heart aches terribly these days and will never stop.”

In early April, the Power actress attended the DMX celebration of life at the Barclays Center, as well as the prayer vigil that was held outside the White Plains Hospital while he was still on life support. As Paige, the hip-hop community, and the world at large continues to mourn the death of the great DMX, may his soul rest in eternal peace.

Don’t you hop up in your car and get in your feelings (Ooh, woo)
I just wanted to be heard, but I made some millions

If I take you to my crib, I put that way down in your gut

Dada – Do It Lyrics

I’m gonna open up for you
I’ll be your flower in bloom
I’ll open up for you
Do it for me too

I’m gonna purr like a cat for you
I’ll be the pet in your bedroom
Gonna purr like a cat for you
You do it for me too

Do it
Do it
Do it

I’m gonna roll the dice for you
I’ll be so lucky, you’ll never lose
I’ll roll the dice for you
Do it for me too

I’m gonna part the crowds for you
They’ll all stand back when you walk through

I’ll part the crowds for you
Do it for me too

Do it
Do it
Do it

Tucson, good to be somewhere
Washington, gotta be somewhere
All night long (I belong)
Gotta be somewhere with you

Gonna open up for you
I’ll be your flower in bloom
I’ll open up for you
Do it for me too

Do it, do it
Do it, do it
Do it, do it
Do it, do it

Alkaline’s “Top Prize” Album Tops Streaming Charts Ahead Of Release

Alkaline says his sophomore album shows growth and experience as the body of work making its presence felt on international charts ahead of its release.

With several weeks to go before the release of his second studio album, Alkaline is already dominating the charts. His album Top Prize is the #1 pre-ordered album on all major streaming platforms, including Amazon and iTunes. Alkaline’s fans have been showing up for the artiste as they await the May 14 release of the album.

As of the time of this publication, the album was #1 in pre-orders internationally and for the Reggae charts on Amazon. Sales have also landed “Top Prize” in the best selling charts in Amazon’s Caribbean category.

On the iTunes platform, “Top Prize” secured the top prize, peaking at number 1 on the US Reggae Album chart. It also peaked at the #2 spot on the global all genres chart before falling into #4 for worldwide pre-order sales.

This is a big deal for the Vendetta artiste, who recently secured his place in history when he became the first Jamaican and Caribbean artiste to perform on streaming service Audiomack’s Acoustic, visual series. Alkaline performed the song “Cree,” which is one of the 14 tracks to be featured on his upcoming album.

The performance, which is featured on Audiomack’s YouTube channel, is #6 on Trending in Jamaica and has more than 238,000 views.

In another history-making move, the “Ocean Wave” singer also became the face of Spotify’s first Caribbean-focused playlist. The “Back A Yard” playlist was released following Spotify’s major expansion into 83 additional countries.

In addition to the track titled “Top Prize,” Alkaline’s album will feature works such as “Medicine,” “Payroll,” “Ocean Wave,” “More Life,” “Hostage,” and “Cree.” Fans are already debating and forecasting which track will be their favorite.

“Top Prize,” the single, has already been making waves of its own, amassing millions of streams across multiple platforms. The song has over 2.5 million views on YouTube alone.

Alkaline’s PR rep, Shuzzr, told Urban Islandz, “The level of artistry, growth and dominance Alkaline has demonstrated over the years is incomparable. As an independent artist he continues to break barriers globally and expand the genre’s footprint in mainstream and new media markets; in the coming weeks he will give fans a ‘soulful jam’ of tracks. Our client’s product and approach is meticulous and the results can be seen from the respect and support he receives from his fans worldwide.”

Shuzzr added, “The level of artistry, growth and dominance Alkaline has demonstrated over the years is incomparable.”

Alkaline says that the project is a reflection of his growth and experience after being in the music industry for a decade. “This album is timely as with my experiences, the lessons learned and growth overtime, it is only fair that I bring everything full circle,” Alkaline told us. “All the Detta fans who have been a part of the movement from day one will appreciate it and even those who have just come to realize the fact will enjoy it… It bad! Lol.”

Alkaline’s debut album “New Level Unlocked” peaked at #1 on the Billboard Reggae chart in 2016. It also spent 18 consecutive weeks on the chart. With fans already showing heavy support for “Top Prize,” it will be interesting to see how it truly compares in the coming weeks.

Diana Fuentes – Libre Lyrics

[Letra de “Libre”]

[Verso 1]
No te preocupes, voy a estar bien
Aunque te cueste creer
He aprendido tanto de la vida
Que me sé componer sola
Y analizando la realidad, prefiero despertar
Hoy me fue a buscar una salida que me sepa enseñar

[Pre-Coro]
Y tú, ¿cómo que no quieres irte?
Y yo que no sé rendirme
Ay, la vida se contradice
Y no, no quiero recuerdos tristes
Ni nada que se marchite
Solo un mensaje de amor que dice

[Coro]
Libre, como cometa vuelo
Atravesando el cielo
Flotando con todo lo que me diste
Y me quedo con tu recuerdo
Y cada palabra dicha en secreto
Las llevo con los besos que un día me diste

[Verso 2]
¿Cómo olvidar lo que no se puede borrar?
No, hoy acepto que cada momento me han hecho quien soy
Y vale perdonar

[Pre-Coro]
Y tú, ¿cómo que no quieres irte?
Y yo que no sé rendirme
Ay, la vida se contradice

Y no (No), no quiero recuerdos tristes
Ni nada que se marchite
Solo un mensaje de amor que dice

[Coro]
Libre, como cometa vuelo
Atravesando el cielo
Flotando con todo lo que me diste
Y me quedo con tu recuerdo
Y cada palabra dicha en secreto
Las llevo con los besos que un día me diste
Que un día me diste (Que un día me diste)
Que un día me diste (Que un día me diste)
Las las llevo con los besos y soy

[Coro]
Libre (Libre), como cometa vuelo
Atravesando el cielo
Flotando con todo lo que me diste (Que me diste)
Y me quedo con tu recuerdo (Con tu recuerdo)
Y cada palabra dicha en secreto
Las llevo con tus besos

[Pre-Coro]
Y tú, ¿cómo que no quieres irte?
Y yo que no sé rendirme
Ay, la vida se contradice
Y no, no quiero recuerdos tristes
Ni nada que se marchite
Solo un mensaje de amor que dice

J. Cole Reveals “The Off-Season” Release Date & Album Cover Art

J. Cole is in The Off-Season mode.

The highly anticipated album will be released on May 14th, according to the latest announcement from the Dreamville rapper. J. Cole has been teasing the album The Off Season for the past few weeks, but this is the most conclusive message we have to date that the project is finally coming. He highlighted his long absence, saying that the album has been years in the works.

“Just know this was years in the making,” Cole tweeted on Tuesday (May 4th) while sharing the cover art of himself standing beside a burning basketball hoop. “My new album The Off-Season available everywhere 5/14.”

Fans are already trying to decode the burning hoop. Last week Friday (April 30th), J. Cole gave fans a rare update on the project via his Instagram Story. Needless to say, he appears quite upbeat about what he heard, saying, “Just rode through the city to The Off-Season. Dawg… Too excited.”

Just know this was years in the making.

— J. Cole (@JColeNC) May 4, 2021

The Off-Season is the follow-up to J. Cole’s 2018 album KOD, which saw huge commercial success despite not a single feature being on the album. It will be interesting to see if this project will have any guest features. Don’t hold your breath for that either.

KOD has since been certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) after selling more than a million copies by the end of 2018.

The Off-Season is perhaps the most anticipated hip-hop album this year, along with Drake’s forthcoming project, Certified Lover Boy, which has yet to receive a release date. This is shaping up to be a clash of the titans as both Drake and J. Cole have been at the top of the game over the past decade, although we can argue Drizzy more so than any other rapper.

Boom Boom Says Skillibeng Now The Top Dancehall Artist But Lacks Versatility

Skillibeng has, no doubt, continued to aim high and make moves in the entertainment industry. But talks about the artiste’s declining song quality are once again popping up.

Veteran selector Boom Boom recently expressed that while he believes Skillibeng is the “big name in Jamaica right now,” the deejay should steer clear of the same flows he has been using repetitively on many of his songs.

The “Billboard Selector” made an appearance on TVJ’s Entertainment Report, which took place on Friday (April 30).

Boom Boom, whose real name is Marlon Wizard, also recommended that the “Crocodile Teeth” deejay also reduce the number of tracks he has been releasing progressively.

“Me caan hide him glory. A Skilli a the man right now,” Boom Boom said. But when E.R. host Anthony Miller asked if he believed all his songs were making sense, the selector responded, “Him have couple song weh him release, me see the people them start bash it, say a nursery rhyme, him need fi do better.”

The Alliance selector said he agreed with the criticisms but still could not deny that Skillibeng is “the man” at the moment, as the young deejay has been releasing songs that have hit international markets, specifically, his single “Crocodile Teeth.”

But, with the criticisms, Boom Boom was perhaps referring to Skillibeng’s recent single “Yo,” which had received a number of negative comments, critiques, and jeers upon its release.

Boom agreed with Miller that his “failed” songs were due to the fact that the artiste had been releasing too many songs at one point. Notably, other artists such as Vybz Kartel are known for his hurried song-releasing streak without being an epic fail. But, Boom Boom argued that Skillibeng should not be compared to an artiste like Vybz Kartel, who has been in the industry for a while and has established himself as one of Jamaica’s prolific artists.

“No. Kartel will always be Kartel. Kartel inna a class himself. A di teacher dat,” he declared.

The Esyde artiste has been under scrutiny for some time, as some fans had expressed concern that his new music releases were not as good as previous songs.

While it is well known that the 24-year-old deejay is immensely talented, some fans have been speculating that he may not be taking his music very seriously.

However, the “Coke” deejay has a bright future ahead, and fans are hoping that he will use his talent to the best of his ability to make the best of opportunities to come.

Jada Kingdom Finds A Way To Drop New Music Amid Lawsuit

When you can’t beat them, join them. It seems dancehall singjay Jada Kingdom has decided to follow this old adage in hopes of getting away from her current record label. She’s reportedly found a loophole that she believes will help her to start back releasing new music as she continues to battle against her former manager.

Earlier this year, in February, she opened up about some of the obstacles she was facing. She also let fans know that she wouldn’t be releasing music anytime soon, mostly because of what she called “industry politics” and a lack of management.

The “Green Dreams” singer has somehow found a way to put out new music. She elatedly shared the news with her followers on Instagram yesterday (May 3).
“Since I can’t release any new music yet, mi aguh remix some of my fav songs right now,” she wrote in an Instagram Story. “Let’s go crazy!” she added. She also revealed what the first remix would be.

Jada shared that the first remix, due any day now, will be “D’yani’s Feelings,”. As with most loopholes, there’s a catch. “The artist of the original song will be uploading my remix,” Jada Kingdom said, before adding “YOUTUBE ONLY. Badmind yuh cyah stop mi!!!”

RELATED: Jada Kingdom Hit With Defamation Lawsuit By Her Manager

Jada Kingdom received a lot of media attention recently, mostly because of an ongoing legal battle with her former management team, Pop Style. She was with the company for the last four years. Even though it’s not clear when they became angry with each other, the company has already filed a defamation lawsuit against the artist. The lawsuit, which was filed last month, claims that she allegedly made libelous remarks about them during an Instagram Live video.

During that Live, Jada shared her excitement about having found a new management team.

“Mi excited fi see how everything a go turn out. Mi cya wait fi drop new music,” she said. “Mi waiting, just ready fi go crazy as I should have been doing from day f**king one… There’s just so much sh*t and how mi get by is creating music, laughing, see the good inna everything regardless. Everything a go work out,” she continued.

Drake Laughs At Moneybagg Yo For His Government Name

It seems that Drake forgets how strange real names can sound especially when it doesn’t match up to the music persona and monikers artists choose for themselves.

In a lighthearted comment, Drake poked fun at Moneybagg Yo‘s real name as the rapper shared that Music Choice was playing his Billboard No. 1 album A Gangsta’s Pain where they also revealed his real name.

Moneybagg Yo was not amused by that move by Music Choice, which asked, “DID YOU KNOW? Moneybagg Yo’s real name is Demario Dewayne White Jr.”

“Police as hell… what the f*** wrong with y’all, Music Choice? Get this s**t right. Appreciate the love but damn! Talking about, did y’all know his real name?”

Never mind, the information might satisfy curious fans. Some folks thought the reaction was funny, including Drake, who poked fun at his names. “DD White mayne” Drake posted on an Akademiks post of Moneybagg Yo’s video along with four laughing emojis.

Fans, though, were quick to check Drake, whose real name is Aubrey Graham. Of course, Drake’s name has been the butt of many jokes and the source of quite a few hilarious memes on the internet, especially as his earlier acting career surfaced. Many felt that his name gave him a sort of “softie” look that some even tried to use it to diminish his musical achievements.

However, the rapper has said that aside from being the second most memed person after the Michael Jordan crying face, he doesn’t mind the jokes even if they’re on him as he likes to laugh at a good joke.

“I like laughing even if it’s at my expense. It doesn’t feel like it’s necessarily malicious or hurtful stuff. I’m conscious of it,” he said during an Instagram interview in 2016.

Don’t let him ride,

But you’ve got to rebuke him
Shake him a-loose somehow!

Dear & The Headlights – Oh No! Lyrics

Oh no! I had a thought and a feeling
I watched ’em fasten the noose
I wonder what to do
I wonder what to do

Oh no! smirking the whole time Jim spoke
He doesn’t have a clue. I don’t know what to do
I wonder what to do

I haven’t had a day alone
Haven’t had a day alone since I met you
I haven’t had a day alone
Haven’t had a day…

Oh no! I talk it over with mother
I talk it through with the cops
They give us the same answer
Keep being careful and

Oh no! I’m lying if I’m talking
It’s what I don’t tell you
You wouldn’t like the truth
You wouldn’t like it

I haven’t had a day alone
Haven’t had a day alone since I met you
And I haven’t had a day alone

Haven’t had a day alone since I met you

And it’s one eye on the banquet table
The other on the door
Everyone’s got reasons
But I don’t have the same ones and it’s true
Oh no!

Oh no! The metal wheel is spinning
I take a sip from the tube
In the glass I look pretty
Saw dust in my shoes

Oh no! I’m balancing in my head now
Awaiting a false move
I don’t know what to do.
I don’t know what to do!

Haven’t had a day alone
Haven’t had a day alone since I met you
And I haven’t had a day alone since I met you

And it’s one eye on the banquet table
The other on the door
And everyone’s got reasons but I don’t have the same ones and it’s true.

Oh no!

Dina – Assahra (the Desert) Lyrics

(Translated in English)

Dry land, contains no life
but it contains secrets of a far time
the essence is in it, it contains treasures
and it’s the source to all the meaning in life
lessons we learn, lessons we understand
and with them we can own the beauties of the universe

(Chorus)
the age comes
the desert is where I’m from
and it’s where my soul is
and it contains my heart

and everything that creates me (x4)
hey hey hey

we learn patience from the plants in the desert

look at how it tolerates the heat of the sun
we learn strength from the rocks in the desert
the strength of a million spirits combined in one
we learn skills from the falcon in the desert
look at how it catches a bird in the sky

(Chorus)
the age comes
the desert is where I’m from
and it’s where my soul is
and it contains my heart

and everything that creates me (x4)
hey hey hey

Dry land, contains no life
but it contains secrets of a far time

DJ Khaled Clip From Trip To Jamaica Turned Into A Meme Frenzy

DJ Khaled is getting the meme treatment thanks to this clip from his recent trip to Jamaica.

Whenever DJ Khaled touches down in Jamaica, we expect some legendary collaborations but this time we got more than just that. Add a new notch to his cap, as that combination has produced a variety of hilarious memes. You probably know the one we’re talking about too. It comes from the video of DJ Khaled having lunch in the middle of a river when he takes a sip from his wine glass and suddenly stands up with wide eyes. We’re not sure what the look was supposed to be, one of revelation or amazement maybe, but in true Khaled fashion, it has blown up.

The clip comes from his Khaled Khaled album teasers as he slowly revealed the list of big names he’d be working with. He shared the clip when he was very close to dropping his latest album, and it was absorbed and regurgitated by the meme community quickly.

Fans had some really funny takes on what he could have been thinking about, ranging from him forgetting that he did not cancel his free Amazon Prime trial in the middle of lunch to suddenly remembering you haven’t finished your chores or some other important task. The meme has now surpassed the popular “Another one” rendition.

He’s used to going viral, so he shouldn’t be surprised that the meme has gone global. After all, the album is still on course to sell 100,000 copies and debut at #1 on the charts. The video has become so popular that it’s pulled in millions of views. Khaled is still riding off of the successful release of “Where You Come From,” which features some of Jamaica’s top dancehall acts.

“Just got off the phone with ISLANDS we looking BIG! #WHEREYOUCOMEFROM another dream come true!! from #KHALEDKHALED to the WORLD JAMAICA TO THE WORLD @bujubanton @capletonmusic @grunggaadzilla @barringtonlevy411,” he recently posted to his Instagram.

Doug Stone – Take A Letter, Maria Lyrics

Last night as I got home about a half past ten
There was the woman I thought I knew in the arms of another man
I kept my cool, I ain’t no fool, let me tell you what happened then
I packed some clothes and I walked out and I ain’t going back again

So take a letter, Maria, address it to my wife
Say I won’t be coming home, I gotta start a new life
So take a letter, Maria, address it to my wife
Send a copy to my lawyer, I gotta start a new life

You’ve been many things but most of all a good secretary to me
And in times like this I feel you’ve always been close to me
Was I wrong to work nights and to try to build a good life
All work and no play has just cost me a wife

So take a letter, Maria, address it to my wife
Say I won’t be coming home, I gotta start a new life
Take a letter, Maria, address it to my wife
Send a copy to my lawyer, I gotta start a new life

When a man loves a woman it’s hard to understand
That she would find more pleasure in the arms of another man
I never really noticed how sweet you are to me
It just so happens I’m free tonight would you like to have dinner with me?

And take a letter, Maria, address it to my wife
Say I won’t be coming home, I gotta start a new life
Take a letter, Maria, address it to my wife
Send a copy to my lawyer, I’m gonna start a new life
