Kodak Black – I Be On The Way Lyrics

[Chorus: Khalid]
Put it in drive, I’ll be outside
I be on the way
I be on the way
You can meet me in five
I’ll be all night
I’ll be all day
I’ll be all day
Put it in drive, I’ll be outside
I be on the way
I be on the way
You can meet me in five
I’ll be all night
I’ll be all day
I’ll be all day

[Verse 1: Kodak Black]
Aye I’m booted up out my mup
I’m on my way, I burned the clutch though
I got a lot to tell ya but right now I just wanna fuck though
I love you from the bottom of my heart but bae I’m cutthroat
That pussy good but tonight I wanna stick it in yo’ butt though
I say what I want when I wanna say it, I’m blunt baby
I mixed the KK with the cookie, stuffed it in my blunt
In the cell with a razor blade in my mat
I don’t shave but I hid the razor in my bunk
Pull up and I don’t honk
Hop out then I dump
My steering wheel on the right, it’s enough room in the trunk
I ain’t gon’ bump the horn or hit the horn when I pull up in yo’ front
Hit it on the porch or in the Porsche, kick it then I punt

[Chorus: Khalid]
Put it in drive, I’ll be outside
I be on the way
I be on the way
You can meet me in five
I’ll be all night
I’ll be all day
I’ll be all day
Put it in drive, I’ll be outside
I be on the way
I be on the way
You can meet me in five
I’ll be your night
I’ll be all day
I’ll be all day

[Verse 2: Kodak Black]
Beep, we in a pink Jeep Rubicon
Nothin’ cheap, free, rockin’ Gucci with the Louis Vuitton
Uh
And my son name King Khalid
Bag a nigga ass and do the dash, yeah, need for speed
Layin’ on yo’ ass, I’m in yo’ grass, you gon’ need to retreat
Sniper Gang, you think I’m playin’ all them games, you gon’ need retreat
I love you, we can’t get too deep
I skeet before I go to sleep
We can’t lay up in the sheets
Skeet, go back to the streets
Go back to the streets, you don’t belong to me
Yo’ heart in the streets, it don’t belong to me
Let yo’ soul bleed, pour it on the beat
Yo’ heart in the streets, ya soul belong to me

[Chorus: Khalid]
Put it in drive, I’ll be outside
I be on the way
I be on the way
You can meet me in five
I’ll be all night
I’ll be all day
I’ll be all day
Put it in drive, I’ll be outside
I be on the way
I be on the way
You can meet me in five
I’ll be all night
I’ll be all day
I’ll be all day

Joey Bada$$ – 80 Blocks Lyrics

[Intro]
“I mean the reason they call him ‘Crazy Joe’ he goes off once in a while. Uhh, but he’s the type of guy you can go to and talk to, you know?
‘Uhh Joey, look these guys are doin’ somethin’ they have no reason to be doin’, I mean, what’s goin’ on here?’
Joey, he’d go out there and talk to ’em and they’ll listen, suddenly Joe will go crazy, you know?”

[Verse 1: Joey Bada$$]
Hold up
What’s life like now? Shots of the expresso
Gettin’ star bucks been the basic manifesto
I’m up early mornin’, breakin’ fast through the thresholds (uh-huh)
They tell I’ma wear myself out, but that’s the dress code (swag)
Unlock the swag and nigga let’s go
We securin’ bags, you niggas insecure and mad
One hundred thirty on the dash, that’s if my nigga Lex drove
Keep the heat, the stash, if you got
Usually we positive, just tryna stay blessed though
I’d rather to be safe, never know what to expect yo
In the streets, we livin’ in, niggas invidious, serious
And ’cause of this, inside of me, kept hidden, it’s hideous (uh)
And that’s ugly truth, I’m speakin’ from my troubled youth
To whom I try to give a mental boost when I’m in the booth
Been through the struggle, made it out, I’m the livin’ proof
I took the pain like I pull it from my wisdom tooth (nigga)

[Interlude]
“We’re still surviving, you know we took our bruises and we came out. We survived, we here, we got this, which I think is out of sight”

[Verse 2: Chuck Strangers]
First me and Robi break up
Now every day I wake up, with more bullshit as I arrive to the pulpit
Pro Era apostle (preach), nigga droppin’ gospels
Chucky be a reverend, Psalm 47
God is the king of all on earth
But after him know that the Era is first (know that)
Know it’s all about knowin’ your worth
Thank Christ for savin’ my life today
Know I have the right of way
I’m blessed to see a brighter day (blessed)
Keep me away from ruthless
You can teach a man a lesson, but don’t make him feel stupid
Put me on, don’t put me down, my g
We all out here just tryna be
Fine lines between egos and insecurities
You ain’t less of a man if you don’t squeeze (if you don’t squeeze, don’t squeeze)
You not necessarily a man if you do
Chalk it up to human nature, ’cause it’s just what men do (it’s just what men do)
Self-destruct with no fucks, all of to give up
I’m Chuck, Strangers

[Outro]
“And like I see a whole new future opening up for me and like I really don’t want to do all the things I’ve done over the years before. I really don’t want to do them again. But, like if I do them, like in the past, I don’t go around bragging ‘I done this, I done that,’ to myself so nobody knows about it. And when nobody knows, word don’t get out and you don’t get busted.”

Son Lux – Labor Lyrics

[Verse]
I will break with you
For your body to be freed
Not pleased
Take the weight of you
For your gravity to be erased
Just a phantom muse
What was the form, the flesh, the feet, the face?

[Refrain 1]
Come to life, my hungry arms are begging you
But what more can you do?

[Chorus]
Labor reveal
Before our eyes, into our ears
Unfurl with light
The stars around us disappear
Just what is torn
What comes alive inside of us

[Chorus]
Labor reveal
Before our eyes, into our ears
Unfurl with light
The stars around us disappear
Just what is torn
What comes to life inside of us

[Refrain 2]
Come to, come to, come to life, come to

Tory Lanez – March 2nd Lyrics

[Verse]
Second cycle, the kid is movin’ like Billy Idol
With some past due W’s that I’m still entitled
City love me I treat it like it’s a bridal
Tux black as the strap I’m using to hit the rival
Last album was great, but I know this one is greater
I made it this far as a great tastemaker without a spread from Complex and them covers that come in from FADER
I’m at tables with mans you love it
Fuck it, I made it from buckets
Slept in the rugged seats of a Civic
To walking in the city and niggas screaming I did it
I spit this shit from way back for ’em
This for niggas that told me, “I’ll come back” but never came back for ’em
Loyal to them so I wait back for ’em like they my niggas
Knowin’ they isn’t, these niggas so insufficient
When we was both dealing, I used to throw in the pigeon
I guess, that mean nothing when niggas start coexisting
I done lost some good girls and niggas that I would cope with
Been backstabbed by niggas I used to smoke with
As far as rap I’m not the one to toe-to-toe with or go at it blow for blow with the silly shit no for no with
Money on the line, its money all on my mind
Calculating this vision, I sum it up for the grind
I promise when I got it I’d fuck it up for the times
Put 20k on the tab and buss it up every time, you get me?
In a Bentley smokin’ on a fat 20, jealous niggas don’t offend me, Dior dripped in the Fendi
I do it for the family OGs that never sent me on mission when I was down to put clip in and leave it empty and work
I ain’t trippin’ ’bout who got at me and dissed
I’m blessed, when I think about who shot at me and missed
I came from real situations
Niggas got clapped for little insinuations, time and impatience
Been grindin’, finding my way in so much bros like the Wayans
Sometime it weigh me down whenever they try weigh in
In the day out, in the day in, shooters on say when
Niggas got clapped before the day end
The city I come from, taught me that there’s nothing to run from
It taught me get my money in lump sums
So ’til that day, still at war, I’m still at pay
Never change boy, we still that way
It’s young Fargo

Julia Michaels – Are You Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Hold onto my heartbeat like you mean it
‘Cause there’s something too real to let it slide
If you gotta go, we can achieve it
You better believe it, so do I
I don’t need your words to get me goin’
Let your body language set the tone
Save all your emotions for the motion
Don’t make me go at this alone

[Pre-Chorus]
Up and down in your direction
I keep lookin’
Up and down in your direction
And I feel you watchin’ too

[Chorus]
Are you thinkin’ the same thing I’m thinkin’?
Are you? Are you? Are you? Are you?
Are you openin’ doors to your feelings?
Are you? Are you? Are you? Are you?
Ooh, it’s gettin’ so hot in here, ooh
I keep makin’ it crystal clear, ooh
Are you thinkin’ the same thing I’m thinkin’?
Are you? Are you? Are you? Are you?

[Verse 2]
I’ll lasso you into my dimension
You’ll pull me into your universe
Let’s see who can handle all the tension
Who’s getting it first? Mmm…

[Pre-Chorus]
Up and down in your direction
I keep lookin’
Up and down in your direction
And I feel you watchin’ too

[Chorus]
Are you thinkin’ the same thing I’m thinkin’?
Are you? Are you? Are you? Are you?
Are you openin’ doors to your feelings?
Are you? Are you? Are you? Are you?
Ooh, it’s gettin’ so hot in here, ooh
I keep makin’ it crystal clear, ooh
Are you thinkin’ the same thing I’m thinkin’?
Are you? Are you? Are you? Are you?

[Bridge]
Now I wanna try somethin’
My subconscious goes
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah (haha, yeah)
And yours goes
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah (I like that)
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah (all together) (okay)
Ooh!

[Chorus]
Are you thinkin’ the same thing I’m thinkin’?
Are you? Are you? Are you? Are you?
Are you openin’ doors to your feelings?
Are you? Are you? Are you? Are you?
Ooh, it’s gettin’ so hot in here, ooh (gettin’ so hot)
I keep makin’ it crystal clear, ooh (keep makin’ it)
Are you thinkin’ the same thing I’m thinkin’?
Are you? Are you? Are you? Are you?

Skizzy Mars – American Dream Lyrics

[Chorus]
They gon’ let me in this club in these dirty vans
Clean money, I count stacks with these dirty hands
Do a show, copped a rack with my new advance
50 bands, 80, bands, 100 bands
I’m the American dream
We the American dream
New money, no class
Look at them

[Verse 1]
Look at them
Uh
How to make it in America
Real nigga, day one, ain’t a lot of us
Mom worked two jobs, it was hard for us
Me and sis made it out, now she proud of us
They ain’t teach me how to rap in those private schools
Wasn’t like my rich friends, had a lot to lose
Less money, less options, lot of rules
So when that first deal came it was opportune
And shawty got potential, I scout that
She say she in love, but I doubt that
Maybe it’s the drugs or the clout
I get love in the north, I get love in the south, yeah
Shawty claim she a feminist and her ex man feminine
God damn girl you know that he average
God damn girl you know I’m a savage

[Chorus]
They gon’ let me in this club in these dirty vans
Clean money, I count stacks with these dirty hands
Do a show, copped a rack with my new advance
50 bands, 80, bands, 100 bands
I’m the American dream
We the American dream
New money, no class
Look at them

[Verse 2]
New money
Now I’m in the Benz truck with a new honey
Yeah, they said I wouldn’t make it
I’m like, “You funny”
Laughing at my haters like, “You dummies”
The night is young, girl what can you do for me?
Six figures, five shows, big ballin’
Look, I’m very important
I took a break, had some things I had to get sorted
I might retire in my prime like I’m M. Jordan
Table dancing in South Hampton
Use the wine glasses for dirty fantas
We coolin’ out in the whip and I done damn near smashed every girl on my list
KD at the three, Djokovic with the racket
Phelps in the pool, I’m like Speith at the masters
God damn girl you know you a bad bitch
God damn girl you know I’m a savage

[Chorus]
They gon’ let me in this club in these dirty vans
Clean money, I count stacks with these dirty hands
Do a show, copped a rack with my new advance
50 bands, 80, bands, 100 bands
I’m the American dream
We the American dream
New money, no class
Look at them

[Bridge]
Another day in the U.S.A
Just another day in America
Kids from my hood look up to the drug dealers
The system set us up for failure
I just wanna make enough to pay dividends
Then invest in black businesses
They teach us to hate what we see in the mirror
But it can’t break our spirit

[Chorus]
They gon’ let me in this club in these dirty vans
Clean money, I count stacks with these dirty hands
Do a show, copped a rack with my new advance
50 bands, 80, bands, 100 bands
I’m the American dream
We the American dream
New money, no class
Look at them

MGMT – One Thing Left to Try Lyrics

One thing left to try
See if you can make it
Before you choose the night
And the silence overtakes you
If you looked into the fire
And you had that conversation
Then there’s one thing left to try
If you want to save your life

Fear is his name but his friends still call him God
Again and again the thought remains

(The only way to get rid of the feeling)

I don’t wanna die!
Wishing I’d done something
More than what’s required
To last until the sunset
No, I don’t wanna die
Thinking that I’m dreaming
There’s one thing left to try
If you want to change your life

Today I left those thoughts behind, behind
Over and over, you die just to feel alive

The only way to get rid of the feeling
You have to draw the line
And remember there’s more than you’re seeing
Decide

Do you want to keep us alive?
Do you want to feel alive?
Do you want to keep us alive?
Do you want to feel alive?
(Fun is over tonight)
Do you want to keep us alive?
(Fun is over tonight)
Do you want to feel alive?
(Fun is over tonight)
Do you want to keep us alive?
(Fun is over tonight)
Do you want to feel alive?
(Fun is over tonight)

(There’s one thing left to try)
(There’s one thing left to try)

MGMT – James Lyrics

[Verse 1]
James
If you heed the call
And you go outside, and wander off
Then home is there
Wherever you will make it
You can always say, “Who’s laughing now?”

[Verse 2]
James
If you need a friend
Come right over
Don’t even knock
And I’ll be home
The door is always open
And we both can say, “Who’s laughing now?”

[Chorus]
Oh James
My little doll
You just go outside and you call
Oh James
Oh you’re never too far off

[Instrumental Bridge]

[Chorus]
Oh James
My little doll
You just go outside and you call
Oh James
No, you’re never too far off

[Verse 3]
If your fire’s out
There’s no need to shout
I’m always home
And walk on in
I’ll make you tea and breakfast
And we both can say, “Who’s laughing now?”

[Outro]
Oh James
Oh James
Oh James
No, you’re never too far off (James)
No, you’re never too far off

Quick fast I know just what they all do
But you can do it better and it’s all cool
Never seen a stop singe or a stop light
I wanna see what living on the top like
You wanna see what living on the top like
Then chattel me and take me on a joy-ride
Look both ways wherever there I go
In case I run into you I drive slow
I know your sex-drive go all day
Then we can roll [?] ’till tomorrow
Lights out for the insecure, self-centered
I know your heart won’t be the same when I
Dive in head first I don’t mind if I drone
In other words, girl I need you right now
I said:

[Shortened Chorus: Kendrick Lamar]
The love of your name can only pertain to the flame I got in my vein

Blink 182 – American Dream

[Chorus]
They gon’ let me in this club in these dirty vans
Clean money, I count stacks with these dirty hands
Do a show, copped a rack with my new advance
50 bands, 80, bands, 100 bands
I’m the American dream
We the American dream
New money, no class
Look at them

[Verse 1]
Look at them
Uh
How to make it in America
Real nigga, day one, ain’t a lot of us
Mom worked two jobs, it was hard for us
Me and sis made it out, now she proud of us
They ain’t teach me how to rap in those private schools
Wasn’t like my rich friends, had a lot to lose
Less money, less options, lot of rules
So when that first deal came it was opportune
And shawty got potential, I scout that
She say she in love, but I doubt that
Maybe it’s the drugs or the clout
I get love in the north, I get love in the south, yeah
Shawty claim she a feminist and her ex man feminine
God damn girl you know that he average
God damn girl you know I’m a savage

[Chorus]
They gon’ let me in this club in these dirty vans
Clean money, I count stacks with these dirty hands
Do a show, copped a rack with my new advance

I’m the American dream
We the American dream
New money, no class
Look at them

[Verse 2]
New money
Now I’m in the Benz truck with a new honey
Yeah, they said I wouldn’t make it
I’m like, "You funny"
Laughing at my haters like, "You dummies"
The night is young, girl what can you do for me?
Six figures, five shows, big ballin’
Look, I’m very important
I took a break, had some things I had to get sorted
I might retire in my prime like I’m M. Jordan
Table dancing in South Hampton
Use the wine glasses for dirty fantas
We coolin’ out in the whip and I done damn near smashed every girl on my list
KD at the three, Djokovic with the racket
Phelps in the pool, I’m like Speith at the masters
God damn girl you know you a bad bitch
God damn girl you know I’m a savage

[Chorus]
They gon’ let me in this club in these dirty vans
Clean money, I count stacks with these dirty hands
Do a show, copped a rack with my new advance
50 bands, 80, bands, 100 bands
I’m the American dream
We the American dream
New money, no class
Look at them

[Bridge]
Another day in the U.S.A
Just another day in America
Kids from my hood look up to the drug dealers
The system set us up for failure
I just wanna make enough to pay dividends
Then invest in black businesses
They teach us to hate what we see in the mirror
But it can’t break our spirit

[Chorus]
They gon’ let me in this club in these dirty vans
Clean money, I count stacks with these dirty hands
Do a show, copped a rack with my new advance
50 bands, 80, bands, 100 bands
I’m the American dream
We the American dream
New money, no class
Look at them

Joey Bada$$ & Chuck Strangers – 80 Blocks

[Intro]
"I mean the reason they call him ‘Crazy Joe’ he goes off once in a while. Uhh, but he’s the type of guy you can go to and talk to, you know?
‘Uhh Joey, look these guys are doin’ somethin’ they have no reason to be doin’, I mean, what’s goin’ on here?’
Joey, he’d go out there and talk to ’em and they’ll listen, suddenly Joe will go crazy, you know?"

[Verse 1: Joey Bada$$]
Hold up
What’s life like now? Shots of the expresso
Gettin’ star bucks been the basic manifesto
I’m up early mornin’, breakin’ fast through the thresholds (uh-huh)
They tell I’ma wear myself out, but that’s the dress code (swag)
Unlock the swag and nigga let’s go
We securin’ bags, you niggas insecure and mad[?]
One hundred thirty on the dash, that’s if my nigga Lex drove
Keep the heat, the stash, if you got [?]
Usually we positive, just tryna stay blessed though
I’d rather to be safe, never know what to expect yo
In the streets, we livin’ in, niggas invidious, serious
And ’cause of this, inside of me, kept hidden, it’s hideous (uh)
And that’s ugly truth, I’m speakin’ from my troubled youth
To whom I try to give a mental boost when I’m in the booth
Been through the struggle, made it out, I’m the livin’ proof
I took the pain like I pull it from my wisdom tooth (nigga)

[Interlude]
"We’re still surviving, you know we took our bruises and we came out. We survived, we here, we got this, which I think is out of sight"

[Verse 2: Chuck Strangers]
First me and Robi break up
Now every day I wake up, with more bullshit as I arrive to the pulpit
Pro Era apostle (preach), nigga droppin’ gospels
Chucky be a reverend, Psalm 47
God is the king of all on earth
But after him know that the Era is first (know that)
Know it’s all about knowin’ your worth
Thank Christ for savin’ my life today
Know I have the right of way
I’m blessed to see a brighter day (blessed)
Keep me away from ruthless
You can teach a man a lesson, but don’t make him feel stupid
Put me on, don’t put me down, my g
We all out here just tryna be
Fine lines between egos and insecurities
You ain’t less of a man if you don’t squeeze (if you don’t squeeze, don’t squeeze)
You not necessarily a man if you do
Chalk it up to human nature, ’cause it’s just what men do (it’s just what men do)
Self-destruct with no fucks, all of to give up
I’m Chuck, Strangers

[Outro]
"And like I see a whole new future opening up for me and like I really don’t want to do all the things I’ve done over the years before. I really don’t want to do them again. But, like if I do them, like in the past, I don’t go around bragging ‘I done this, I done that,’ to myself so nobody knows about it. And when nobody knows, word don’t get out and you don’t get busted."

Khalid – Location (Remix) (feat. Jorja Smith & Wretch 32)

[Chorus: Khalid]
Send me your location, let’s
Focus on communicating
‘Cause I just need the time and place to come through (place to come through)
Send me your location
Let’s ride the vibrations
I don’t need nothing else but you

[Verse 1: Khalid]
At times I wonder why I fool with you
But this is new to me, this is new to you
Initially, I didn’t wanna fall for you
Gather my attention it was all for you, so don’t
Take advantage, don’t leave my heart damaged
To understand that things go a little bit better when you plan it… oh

[Chorus: Khalid]
Send me your location, let’s
Focus on communicating
‘Cause I just need the time and place to come through (place to come through)
Send me your location
Let’s ride the vibrations
I don’t need nothing else but you

[Verse 2: Jorja Smith]
Send me wherever you were writin’
Send to me whatever you’ve been thinkin’ ’bout
Won’t be surprised if I’m feelin’ the same way that you do
I’m a stranger to this all
Not a stranger to the fall
I just wish you wouldn’t mind to call me back, no

[Chorus: Jorja Smith & Khalid]
Send me your location, let’s
Focus on communication
‘Cause I just need the time and place to come through, no
Send me your location
Let’s ride the vibrations
I don’t need nothing else but you

[Verse 3: Wretch 32]
Should I throw in the towel or throw you vowels?
I’ve been, constantly tryin’ to track you down
Smiley, I’m skin and teeth ’cause your skinnin’ out
Give me neck, your neck’ll spin like an owl, I’ll spin you ’round
I.e., I felt your presence upon your entrance
They need attention, you need affection
My only sentence, I’ll leave you breathless
If you’re guilty that’s a life full of diamonds without the pressures
And raccoon, you’re in my circle, that’s eternal, we’re in the loop
Your ex is cussin’, he’s supposed to, that’s an excuse
That’s what they do… I follow through

[Chorus: Wretch 32]
So send me your location
‘Cause I want your vibrations and frequencies
Only trees and seeds

[Outro: Khalid]
I don’t need nothing else but you
Nothing else but you
Do, do, do, do, do, do
Oh, oh, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, mmm, mmm, mmm
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do

Yandel – Sólo Mía (feat. Maluma)

[Intro: Yandel]
Llevo varios días buscándote
Extrañándote, pensando que
¿Cuándo volverás a ser mía?
¿En tu cama con quién dormías?

[Coro: Maluma, Yandel]
Sabes que siempre serás mía, sólo mía
No hay secretos en tu habitación
Baby, ¿quién diría que me enamoraría de ti?

Sabes que siempre serás mía, sólo mía
No hay secretos en tu habitación
Baby, ¿quién diría que me enamoraría de ti?

[Verso 1: Maluma]
Sigo pensándote, imaginándome
Que estás tocándome y provocándote
No hay secretos en mi habitación
Loco por volver a verte
Y recordarte cómo te hago subir al cielo
Tu cuerpo es una sombra y yo agarrado de tu pelo
Tus gemidos, tus siluetas que aparecen en mis sueños
Quién diría que entre tantos soy tu dueño!

[Pre Coro: Maluma]
Dime a ver
No te esfuerces con soñarlo
El fuego hay que apagarlo
No entiendo porqué extrañarnos

Sabes que siempre serás mía, sólo mía

Baby, ¿quién diría que me enamoraría de ti?

[Verso 2: Yandel]
Los recuerdos en tu cuarto te dejan dormir tranquila
Son tantos los momentos, yo sé que no los olvidas
Sé que duermes con mi camisa en tu piel
Si se le va el olor, búscame otra vez
Si me preguntan por ti no sé que decirles
Pues lo que conocí de ti es confundible
Sabes la verdad, no te quiero ofender
Cómo lo haces, vuelvo a perder

[Pre Coro: Yandel, Maluma]
Dime a ver
No te esfuerces con soñarlo
El fuego hay que apagarlo
No entiendo porqué extrañarnos

Dime a ver
No te esfuerces con soñarlo
El fuego hay que apagarlo
No entiendo porqué extrañarnos

Whethan & Dua Lipa – High (From “Fifty Shades Freed”)

[Verse 1: Dua Lipa]
You don’t have to be so cautious if you practice what you preach
Counting up the stacks on the counter, a fucking disease
Don’t ask me to be righteous if you practice what you teach
Counting all your blessings the second you’re down on your knees

[Chorus: Dua Lipa]
So why, why
Don’t we get a little high, high?

[Post-Chorus: Dua Lipa]
Don’t we get a little, get a little
Don’t we get a little high
Get a little high, high

[Verse 2: Dua Lipa]
Keep my head under the water, pride buried in my chest
Not counting all the minutes, the seconds, not holdin’ my breath
Now sinking from the surface, swimming in my lungs
Losing all my vision, religion, I’m holding my tongue

[Chorus: Dua Lipa]
So why, why
Don’t we get a little high, high?

[Post-Chorus: Dua Lipa]
Don’t we get a little, get a little
Don’t we get a little high
Get a little high, high

[Bridge: Dua Lipa]
Don’t wanna pay attention to the writing on the wall
Painted with aggression, and dripping when you call
Not gonna learn my lesson, am I running out of time?
So, why, why, why?

[Post-Chorus: Dua Lipa]
Don’t we get a little, get a little
Don’t we get a little high
Get a little high, high

I’m written and unbothered, completely who I’m ‘posed to be
Comfortable in my own skin, even if no one notice me
But notably, I’m known as King, someone who control this dream
And broke free of every iron hand that had a hold on me

The Biggest Scandals in Olympic Figure Skating History

Getty Images; AP; Melissa Herwitt / E! Illustration

Show us a sport and we’ll show you a scandal.

There is no such thing as competition without controversy, and when you add millions of dollars; massive egos; years of blood, sweat and tears; and international tension, sometimes between countries that don’t much like each other even on a good day, you’ve got controversy on steroids.

Sometimes literally.

And though it’s beautiful to look at and the inevitable stories of triumphing over adversity are heartwarming, figure skating has had its share of issues.

We know the first one that comes to mind, in no small part due to the Oscar-nominated I, Tonya currently in theaters, so we’ll start with that: Nancy Kerrigan getting whacked on the knee in an otherwise hapless attack arranged by Tonya Harding‘s ex-husband Jeff Gillooly 24 years ago.

Kerrigan was traumatized but physically OK enough to win a silver medal a month and a half later at the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, where Harding finished eighth after having a meltdown over a broken skate lace. 

Gillooly spent six months in prison after pleading guilty to racketeering for his role in what proved to be a career-killing PR debacle for Harding. The athlete herself pleaded guilty to hindering prosecution in March 1994, though it was only this year that she admitted she figured out what had happened after the fact—even before she was filled in—but didn’t tell authorities. She was banned for life from the United States Figure Skating Association and stripped of the national title she won two days after Kerrigan was attacked.

“You are a prime example of how ruthless ambition and raw greed can disrupt, degrade and disfigure a sport of grace even to the height of the Olympics,” Circuit Judge Donald Londer told Gillooly at sentencing. “All that will be recalled is a band of thugs from Portland, Ore., tried to rig the national figure skating association championships and the Olympics by stealth and violence.”

As I, Tonya intended, it’s impossible to watch the film and not come away with the sinking feeling that Harding was competing against the odds all her life and was more of an innocent bystander in her own rather tragic story than the villain the tabloids made her out to be 24 years ago.

“I knew that this would be with me for the rest of my life,” Harding told the New York Times recently—and she wasn’t talking about the fact that she was the first American woman to land a triple axel in competition.

She also admitted that the public perception of her (wild remembrances of the incident have ranged from people thinking she personally arranged the attack to thinking she clubbed Kerrigan herself) still gets to her sometimes.

“I do care. I mean, I care, but I don’t care,” Harding told ABC News in December. “The most important people are my family and my closest friends. Everybody else’s opinions don’t matter. So my motto is, ‘Take care of me, so I can take care of my family.’” She recalled, “The media had me convicted of doing something wrong before I had even done anything at all, before I had talked to anyone, before I get out of bed. I’m always the bad person.”

While that act of violence in the name of competition turned out to be an isolated event in figure skating, a different kind of controversy emerged in its wake.

Eight years later in Salt Lake City, the pairs figure-skating competition at the 2002 Winter Olympics was allegedly fixed—you know, no big deal—and the debacle prompted an overhaul of the age-old scoring system.

Which in turn, according to critics, made the scoring even more incomprehensible. Gone was the old way where skaters were judged out of 6 on technical merit and artistry, and in came different possible high scores for each skater based on the difficulty of the tricks they planned to execute and how well they did so, plus overall presentation.

“Of course, the drama of a perfect mark has been taken away, but things had to evolve,” Canadian figure skater David Pelletier told CBC Sports last month. “People watch figure skating for the athleticism and emotion that it can bring more than for the marks the athletes can receive.”

JACQUES DEMARTHON/AFP/Getty Images

It was Pelletier and partner Jamie Salé (the couple married in 2005 and have a son together) who were at the center of the controversy in 2002 after they were awarded the silver medal behind Russian pair Elena Berezhnaya and Anton Sikharulidze—which didn’t appear right to anyone who had just watched Pelletier and Salé skate.

Amid the uproar, French judge Marie-Reine Le Gougne tearfully admitted to throwing her vote to the Russians in exchange for a Russian judge’s vote for a French ice-dancing pair, after being pressured from the president of the French Ice Sports Federation, Didier Gailhaguet, to do so. Gailhaguet thoroughly denied exerting any pressure on LeGougne. (He resigned in 2004—and then was reelected in 2007.)

Le Gougne then recanted her confession, saying she’d been under pressure yet again, this time by the International Skating Union, to admit to something she didn’t do. After being suspended indefinitely, she told the French paper L’Equipe that she really did think the Russians should have won in the first place and she voted accordingly. “I judged in my soul and conscience,” she said. “I considered that the Russians were the best. I never made a deal with an official or a Russian judge.” 

Le Gougne then accused ISU technical committee chairwoman Sally Stapleford, who was British but also had a Canadian passport because her father was Canadian, of masterminding a plot to put Canada on top by drumming up a French conspiracy. Attorney and ISU championship judge Jon Jackson told a reporter at the time, “When accusations get that ridiculous, it’s an indication that people are running scared.”

Pelletier and Salé were ultimately awarded gold medals (at a ceremony that the Russian pair, who got to keep their medals as well, gracefully attended) and Le Gougne wrote a tell-all book, Glissades à Salt Lake City. And now no one understands how figure skating is scored.

The grumbling over skating’s scoring system never abated, with many befuddled athletes, fans and entire countries more united in their annoyance than ever.

YURI KADOBNOV/AFP/Getty Images

When the medals were handed out in Sochi in 2014, more than 2 million people signed a Change.org petition demanding an investigation into the judging of the women’s figure skating after Russian Adelina Sotnikova won the gold over South Korea’s Yuna Kim, who won gold in Vancouver 2010 and retired after the Sochi Games.

It was the first women’s figure-skating gold for Russia and Sotnikova’s best finish in non-junior international competition. She wasn’t even the favorite from her own team to win gold, those hopes having been placed on 15-year-old Julia Lipnitskaia. You’d think the underdog, out-of-nowhere angle would’ve worked for people. Instead, however, critics of the scoring system and the judges implementing it were irate that Sotnikova skated away with the gold after attempting just enough trickery to win and turning in a tidy, though not perfect performance. (Most of the online angst came from people in Korea.)

“I am stunned by this result, I don’t understand the scoring,” Katarina Witt, who won back to back individual golds (in 1984 and 1988, for East Germany), reportedly said on German TV.

Hers is definitely more of a traditional perspective, one shared by many but which doesn’t serve any athlete, coach or analyst to harp on these days. (And speaking of traditional, even U.S. champ Dick Button, who won the men’s figure skating at the Olympics in 1948 and 1952, weighed in via Twitter: “Sotnikova was energetic, strong, commendable, but not a complete skater. I fear I will never be allowed back in Russia again.”)

“Adelina collected more points,” said 1984 Olympic gold medalist turned TV commentator Scott Hamilton, who was watching from the NBC booth. “That is really the only way you can describe it. If you look at Yuna of the past, this was not a program as difficult as she has done, and she left the opportunity for someone to collect points on that side of the scoring. It may not have been as beautiful as Yuna and Carolina, but under the rules and the way it works, she did all that…I think it was a just strategy that worked on the night.”

Ultimately, there was no official protest filed with the ISU or International Olympic Committee, so no official investigation was conducted. However, the Chicago Tribune pointed out that one of the judges on the panel was married to the general director of the Russian Figure Skating Association, and another judge, from Ukraine, had actually been banned from judging for a year after getting caught in a result-fixing plot in 1998.

Meanwhile, does anyone else think the current athletic-proficiency-over-artistry approach might have served someone named Tonya Harding back in the day?

In the aftermath of Sochi, in 2016 the International Skating Union ended judging anonymity, which had been implemented in response to the uproar in 2002—a welcome change for those clamoring for more transparency in the sport, not less.

Fast-forward to this year at the U.S. National Championships (all roads lead to the Olympics in this sport) and Ashley Wagner, who was a member of the group that won bronze in the inaugural team competition in Sochi but missed out on making the team that went to Pyeongchang.

Aside from her Sochi teammate Gracie Gold, who took herself out of the running for a 2018 Olympics spot last fall to focus on her physical and mental health, Wagner is the United States’ most well-known star on the ice—so call a country confused that the judges poked so many holes in her performance.

That’s right, in a sport where the national bias is now just assumed, Wagner didn’t even benefit from her own home-soil advantage. She finished fourth at nationals and champion Bradie Tennell, silver medalist Mirai Nagasu and bronze medalist Karen Chen are competing in the 2018 Winter Olympics. 

“I’m furious, I am absolutely furious,” Wagner told reporters afterward. “I know when I go and I lay it down and I absolutely left one jump on the table, but for me to put out two programs that I did at this competition as solid as I skated and to get those scores, I am furious, and I think deservedly so.”

In an attempt to avoid a deduction for poor sportsmanship in the court of public opinion, she tweeted later, “As an athlete, I’m allowed to be mad. As a senior competitor with over 10 years of experience, I’m allowed to question things. At the end of the day, I laid out my best and I’m going home proud! Congrats to the lovely ladies of the team, you’ve got me in your cheering squad now! Lastly Twitter, before you eat me alive, don’t forget there is a real person on the other end of your tweets.”

The 26-year-old, whose competitive Olympic career is effectively finished, said on Today a few days later that she didn’t regret reacting strongly in the moment.

“I think the only thing that I question is my scores compared to my scores in the past,” she continued. “I scored lower in the second mark in my short program than I did in a competition that I was injured at and those are the things that I’m confused about, but you know, the technical side, I think was totally fair and I ended up where I ended up, but, I mean, that moment I created for myself—a standing ovation at Nationals, that’s something that for me, I’ll forever be proud of.”

And if she had made the U.S. team, she still would have skated right into a hotbed of national subjectivity and playing favorites. (Which she presumably remembers from 2014, having had one of the more meme-able reactions when she saw her short-program scores in Sochi, where she finished seventh overall in the individual competition.)

Which is apparently just the way it is. A new analysis from BuzzFeed News found that 16 of the 48 figure-skating judges who will be on the job in Pyeongchang—including two each from Canada and the United States, three from China and all three Russians—have evidenced a pattern of showing preference to skaters from their own countries in international competition. And a single judge inclined to give a boost to his or her country’s team could influence the medal standings if the scores are close enough.

NBC News noted, as well, that 33 of the 164 judges considered eligible to judge the skating this year hold or once held leadership positions with their national skating federations—and 11 of the aforementioned 48 fit that bill, including a Korean judge who told a newspaper that she would make sure skaters from her country were “not disadvantaged” this year.

And speaking of scandal, all 163 Russian athletes at the Olympics in Pyeongchang, including 15 figure skaters, are competing as “Olympic Athletes From Russia,” due to the ban slapped on their national team for what the IOC determined was an entrenched, widespread, allegedly government-sanctioned doping program.

Meanwhile, despite all the talk of favoritism, there is such a thing as the exact opposite of support from one’s home country in skating—but that appears to be reserved for those who really upset their compatriots.

Norwegian figure-skating legend Sonja Henie, who though she later became a U.S. citizen and made an anti-Nazi film when she turned to acting, was a personal favorite of Adolf Hitler‘s when she was in her skating prime. 

Henie won back-to-back-to-back individual figure-skating gold medals at the 1928, 1932 and 1936 Olympics (the last of which was held in Berlin but is not to be confused with the 1936 Summer Olympics, which is most remembered for U.S. track star Jesse Owens‘ four-gold-medal performance under Hitler’s maniacal gaze), but not before causing widespread outrage back in Norway.

In Berlin before the Olympics, Hitler and his entourage came to watch her skate and she greeted him with the Nazi salute and a “heil Hitler,” prompting headlines speculating that she was some sort of Nazi or Nazi sympathizer. (The general consensus, however weak, was that she was just going with the flow and was not a political person.) She did not repeat the gesture during the Olympics, but Hitler presented her with an autographed photo along with her gold medal, after which she and her parents are said to have accepted an invitation to lunch with him.

“I don’t think Sonja Henie was a political person in any way, shape, or form,” Dick Button told Vanity Fair in 2014. “She was an opportunist… I don’t think she could have cared less who Hitler was, except for whatever power he had and what it would do for her career.”

The 1940 and 1944 Winter Olympics—to be hosted by Japan and Italy, respectively—were canceled due to World War II. After the 1936 Olympics, Henie retired from skating and set her sights on Hollywood, marrying an American and becoming a naturalized citizen in 1940. She ultimately supported U.S. war efforts, but it didn’t escape notice that she didn’t donate to the Norwegian resistance until after Pearl Harbor.

Tune in to NBC to watch the Winter Olympics.

Cardi B Blast Tami Roman For Spreading Pregnancy Conspiracy

Cardi B woke up at 9 pm checked her Instagram and saw Tami Roman speaking about her pregnancy reports.

Cardi’s performance in Trinidad on Thursday night was well received but the images from her set only serve to add more fuel to the chatters about her pregnancy. Of course, she already addressed the rumors saying she is just eating well and putting on a little weight. Some folks don’t buy it but that’s her explanation. Love and Hip Hop personality Tami Roman went a step further and post a video of herself telling Cardi B to make a formal announcement on her pregnancy. She also begged the rapper not to come for her but she still did and something tells me that this is only the beginning.

“I died but woke up on my way to mortuary” — Comedian Julius Agwu narrates how his dead father chased him back to life after he died

Veteran Nigerian Comedian, Julius Agwu, has spoken about how he’d have been dead by now during an interview with Saturday Beats, but all glory be to God.

During the interview, the humour merchant noted that he had died but woke up when he was being conveyed to the mortuary.

Like a Nollywood movie, the comedian said that while he was unconscious, he had an encounter with some people he knew had died and he would have remained dead if his father who had died 12 years ago did not chase him back to the land of the living.

He said,

“The truth is that I would not have been alive if not for God. I died and woke up; I literally died and woke up. I say that authoritatively because I know that I had an encounter with people that I know had died during that period. I saw my father who died about 12 years ago; he was the one that came and chased me back to the world because it was not my time. I died here in Nigeria but woke up when they were taking me to the mortuary. That was the first time I had a seizure in my house but my wife stood by me. God would keep on blessing my wife; I believe that God gave me my wife and I always thank him for her. I bless God that she stayed despite everything that happened to me. They were taking me to a mortuary but to God be the glory, my hand moved and that was the point they returned me to the hospital. Here I am today. The encounter made me realize that there is nothing as good as rest. It is very important to sleep. I work so hard and I believe that of all comedians in Nigeria, I am the only one with so many brands, I have Crack Ya Ribs, Laff for Christ’s Sake and Festival of Love.”

Speaking for the first time since his second visit to the hospital over the tumours in his brain, Agwu told Saturday Beats that he had a relapse because he did not rest properly after his first surgery.

“What happened was that they did an MRI scan and they detected that I had two growths. They removed a tumour at the back of my head which was the size of a golf ball and the other tumour was close to my brain. They advised me that if they touched the other tumour, it could be fatal. They gave me drugs to shrink the tumour but I did not rest well and that is why it came back last year. I did not rest at all, after my surgery in America, I resumed doing my shows. I thank God for everything.

“The truth is that I am back and better. I just want to use this opportunity to tell the people that God is great and this is a time we should all reflect on our life. I would not lie to you, things are not easy in the country and many people are running away from Nigeria. ‘Crack Ya Rib’ was the first Nigerian show that went to London and after that, everybody started taking their shows there. I thank God that ‘Crack Ya Rib’ paved the way for other shows,” said Agwu.

Being the humour peddler that he is, the funnyman said that some people including his dear friend and colleague, Okey Bakassi, believe that his illness was a spiritual attack simply because he once showed interest to contest as the governor of Rivers State.

“We live in a country where people are funny. Remember there was a time I made it public that I wanted to contest as a governor for my state, now, people have advised me not to try it again because they believe that my illness was a spiritual attack. We live in a country where people test your power when you announce that you want to contest for an office. My good friend, Okey Bakassi, told me that the illness was a spiritual attack and pleaded with me not to try it again. He said that there was a time he also thought of contesting for a political office but that something happened to him which he said he would never forget. I just kept on laughing,” he said.
