LOVE GALORE IS TEA. LET'S SIP

SZA did it when she made Love Galore.

A song that we, well me can't get out of my head. This song describes my life. The lyrics are used as shady tweets, and sometimes IG captions. When I first heard about her album CTRL, I did not listen to it. It stayed in my library for about two weeks until I gave it a listen. The reason after two weeks I gave it a listen was because I need some new music in my life, and someone on twitter recommended her, so I was like might as well finally give her a listen. And so I did, and let's just say since that day there has not been a day that I haven't listened to AT LEAST one of the songs off CTRL. So after listening to the whole album SZA definitely gained a new fan in me! Sooooo, to those of you who has never heard of SZA or the album CTRL, or even the song Love Galore, where my title came from by the end of this blog, you will know at least one of the three. WHY. YOU. BOTHER. ME. WHEN. YOU. KNOW. YOU. DONT. WANT. ME? WHY. YOU. BOTHER ME. WHEN. YOU. KNOW. YOU. GOT. A. WOMAN? (Sidebar, I can totally hear Nene saying this) Carrying right along. So let's break down the lyrics Love Galore, and let us see what exactly is SZA talking about. So the song starts off with Travis Scott saying "I need, and which eventually starts off saying "love." If you haven't noticed the song is from two point of views. Done with these niggas I don't love these niggas I dust of these niggas Do it for fun Don't take it personal Personally, I'm surprised you Called me after the things I said So basically she is saying, I'm done. I don't have time for it. This has all been or fun. Whatever we had is now over, and we are done with one another. Fed up with all these wack dudes, we are no longer interested because we don't need our time wasted. "I dust off these niggas" because at this point we no longer care. Skrrr, skrrr on niggas Skirt up on niggas Skirt down, you acting like me Acting like we, wasn't more than a summer fling This particular part in the song is so funny to me, and a tiny bit of petty. Basically SZA is asking him why is he feeling some type of way? What we had is over, so get over it. I said farewell, you took it well Promise I won't cry over spilled milk Gimme a paper towel, gimme another Valium Gimme another hour or two, hour with you It's over. Done. Finished. Let's not dwell on the past. Do what we need to do and move on. Why you bother me when you know you don't want me? Why you bother me when you know you got a woman? Why you hit me when you know you know better? Know you know better Know your crew better than you do Call me looking for ya I be looking for ya Got me looking forward to weekends With you, baby, with you, baby With you, baby, with you WHY? Just WHY? Why you do that? I just wanna know. We both know this isn't gonna go anywhere. Why are you wasting your time, and most importantly why are you wasting MY time? (no, but seriously) We do whatever we want, go wherever we want Love however we want, it don't matter You'll do whatever I want, get whatever I want Get whatever I need, it's about... Self explanatory. We do what we want and nothing else matters when it comes to them. Should've never gave you my number, I did it with you Should've never let you hit it, I split it with you I regret it, you gots a fetish You gots a problem, now it's a problem, oh, no Reminiscing and regret are all too relatable. This is kind of back and forth. Meanwhile SZA is saying he's stuck on her, it seems like she is entertaining him coming back which is far too common with "situationships* Skrrr, skrrr on bitches I don't know these bitches Dig dirt on bitches, do it for fun Don't take it personal, baby Love on my ladies, luh-love to my ladies, uh Dated a few Taking a guess, and says this points to the new girl in his life, and we are confused to why we are still being bothered if someone else is in the picture now. This makes it clear that we aint stunting anyone. However, I haven't reached the dating women "phase" of life, and don't plan to however to each their own. Why you bother me? Why you bother me? Why you bother me? Last time I checked you were the one that left Me in a wreck, me in a mess You all I rep, like my side I rep He's in his feelings that she's moved on, and is wondering what is up since there should be nothing left to discuss due to the fact. Whether you've been on his/her side we've all been dumped and left "in a mess" You like to get me high, you don't want no one beside ya You like when I make fire You say, "La Flame, keep makin' fire" Let me cum inside ya, let me plant that seed inside ya Ass and titties, titties, only thing that stuck with, with me Whippin', that was real Only thing I could feel, you feel me? So why you bother me, why you bother me? Obviously the sex is/was bomb? What other reason do we have to be still dealing with one another. He admits that may have been the realist part of the relationship which again is common. Sometimes the physical bond leaves us holding on to things we know we should have been let go when we know we don't truly care for the other person. Same applies to the final lines below. I came to your city, lookin' for lovin' n' licky 'Cause you promised to put it down All up in your city, lookin' for you, uh Searchin' for you like love Only thing keepin' me from droppin' you right now Right now, love Only thing keepin' me by your side Only thing keepin' me by your side now Love Galore will definitely put you in your feelings. SZA voice and sound is everything. *inserts heart eyes emoji* Go check out the album CTRL!

Welcome to your blog post. Use this space to connect with your readers and potential customers in a way that’s current and interesting. Think of it as an ongoing conversation where you can share updates about business, trends, news, and more.



Have you ever felt like nothing was going right for you? If you are human, you more than likely answered yes to this question. It is okay to not be okay. Life happens, and things get you down, and you feel like the world is against you. Society makes you feel that you must be happy at all times, and that is not how life works. No one can be honestly happy all the time, and that is okay. One day you feel like life is great, and nothing can stop the high of life you live, and then the next day your world is crumbling down. While I am still young, and still trying to accept this myself that it happens, and that it is okay. Rough patch, a bad day, a major setback. Sometimes, it seems like one thing goes wrong after another. And another, and another. Sometimes an unexpected challenge or an obstacle might come your way, and you find yourself stressing out, worrying and not knowing what to do. And, some days, you just have nothing. Zero motivation, no creativity. All of the sudden, you’re being plagued with self-doubt. You think you have to be strong all the time. You think you’re not allowed to cry, to admit that you’re not okay. But it's okay to admit that you are not okay. This is something that I’ve been struggling with for the last couple of months. I don’t know if these strange and sudden changes in my mood are part of the grieving process; I don’t know if things will ever go back to the way they used to be. What I do know, is that admitting that I’m not doing too well, even to myself, wasn’t easy. Why? Why do we always feel the need to be strong? Why do we feel guilty when taking a time-out? I was overwhelmed with such guilt. How can I sit here and cry and feel sorry for myself, when I have some much to be grateful for? There’s so much work I need to get done, I don’t see anyone else make excuses for themselves. Sometimes it my be difficult to explain how you feel because sometimes you are unable to explain with words how you feel. This could also be because people try to put on a mask to cover on how they really feel. It’s as if everyone feels like showing pain is a sign of weakness. I’m here to tell you that it’s okay to not be okay sometimes. It’s okay to admit that you’re hurting, broken or even confused about your current spot in life. It’s okay… I have always been self-critical. I beat myself up over tiny things, the smallest mistakes. (Not to mention the big mistakes). I’ll over analyze five-minute conversations, wondering if I said the wrong thing and what the other person thinks of me now. I lose sleep over decisions I made years ago, wondering what I could have done differently.I get so frustrated in trying to be perfect, in trying to please everyone around me. Because it’s difficult to remember that it’s a fruitless cause. Perfection doesn’t exist. You can’t make everyone happy all the time. And I’m learning that that’s okay. I am learning to forgive myself for not being perfect. And I’m learning to forgive myself for not always being okay. I want you to take away three things from this blog today. 1. IT IS OKAY TO NOT BE OKAY. Life is not always sunny. There will be some cloudy and rainy moments. You will get past it, you will be okay. 2. Let yourself feel. When that rainy or cloudy day comes. Let all emotions out but don't dwell on it. Acknowledging your feelings can help you get past them. 3. Talk to someone. As hard as it may be to talk about your feelings, it helps to talk about them. Talk to a professional, a teacher, friends or your parents. All in all. Live your life to the fullest.
