POST MALONE – DEJA VU feat. JUSTIN BIEBER

“Deja Vu” és el quart debut de Post Malone del seu àlbum, Stoney. La cançó compta amb la veu de la sensació del pop, Justin Bieber. La cançó és de gènere R&B contemporani.

A “Deja Vu”, Post i Bieber es pregunten si el seu amor per les seves noies està destinat a ser o no. Va ser llançat el 8 de setembre de 2016 per Republic Records.

“Deja Vu” comença sonant sospitosament com el principi de “Hotline Bling”, de Drake, però a continuació s’endinsa en una ranura d’immersió que implica riffs de guitarra i aguts melòdics de Post Malone.

[Intro: Post Malone]
'Cause I can't take it no more
No you ain't like them bitches
Tell them hoes adios
And you can drop your panties
Leave them shits at the door
Dior falls on the floor
I swear we been here before

[Verse 1: Post Malone]
I'm tryna see you from my own perspective
You all in my section tryna come to my session
We rollin' up pressure, you know that we flexin'
We bought all the bottles, we came with the models
Girl this a confession, I'm not like your exes
I came up from Texas, and now that we textin'
You can fly in whenever, now you undressin'
Panties on the dresser, your hair gettin' messed up
The feelin' we catchin', my love is a blessin'
Made love in that Lexus, made love in that Lexus
I know you remember

[Chorus: Justin Bieber + Post Malone]
Tell me, is that deja vu?
'Cause you want me and I want you
Tell me, is that deja vu?
'Cause baby it ain't nothing new, no
Tell me, is that deja vu?
'Cause you want me and I want you
Tell me, is that deja vu?
'Cause baby this ain't nothing new, no

[Verse 2: Justin Bieber]
Oh you actin' reckless
I told you that I need affection
So let me point you in the right direction
It's so important that you get the message
Yeah, I gotta say, gotta say somethin' to you, you, you
I'm on a roll, I'm gonna roll out in that new, new, new
If you wanna do what I wanna do
Well uhm-uhm-uhm
Well I guess that is just deja vu

[Chorus: Justin Bieber + Post Malone]
Tell me, is that deja vu?
'Cause you want me and I want you
Tell me, is that deja vu?
'Cause baby it ain't nothing new, no
Tell me, is that deja vu?
'Cause you want me and I want you
Tell me, is that deja vu?
'Cause baby this ain't nothing new, no

[Bridge: Justin Bieber + Post Malone]
Tell me if you want it baby
'Cause I know I can drive you crazy
I just wanted you to know now
Oh-oh, oh-ohhh
Show up in that new Mercedes, you already know I'm faded
Girl I've been thinkin' about you lately
Oh-oh, oh-ohhh

[Chorus: Justin Bieber + Post Malone]
Tell me, is that deja vu?
'Cause you want me and I want you
Tell me, is that deja vu?
'Cause baby it ain't nothing new, no
Tell me, is that deja vu?
'Cause you want me and I want you
Tell me, is that deja vu?
'Cause baby it ain't nothing new, no

[Outro: Post Malone]
'Cause I can't take it no more
No you ain't like them bitches
Tell them hoes adios
And you can drop your panties
Leave them shits at the door
Dior falls on the floor
I swear we been here before

All of me de JOHN LEGEND

John Stephens, conegut com John Legend, va néixer a Springfield, Ohio, el 28 desembre de 1978. És un cantant, compositor, pianista i actor nord-americà. Ha guanyat deu premis Grammy, un Premi Globus d’Or i un Oscar.

M’ha semblat molt romàntica ja que la cançó va ser una balada a piano, inspirada per llavors la seva  promesa Chrissy Teigen. La parella és va conèixer el 2007 en el set quan realitzava la gravació d’un dels seus vídeos El 14 de setembre de 2013 va ser una data en què van contraure matrimoni.

What would I do
Without your smart mouth drawing me in
And you kicking me out
I got my head spinning
No kidding, I can’t pin you down
What’s going on in that beautiful mind
I’m on your magical mystery ride
And I’m so dizzy, don’t know what hit me
But I’ll be alright

My head’s underwater
But I’m breathing fine
You’re crazy and I’m out of my mind

Because all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
Because I give you all of me
And you give me all of you

How many times do I have to tell you
Even when you’re crying you’re beautiful too
The world is beating you down
I’m around through every mood
You’re my downfall, you’re my muse
My worst distraction, my Rhythm & Blues
I can’t stop singing
It’s ringing in my head for you

My head’s underwater
But I’m breathing fine
You’re crazy and I’m out of my mind

Because all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
Because I give you all of me
And you give me all of you
Give me all of you

Cards on the table
We’re both showing hearts
Risking it all though it’s hard

Because all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
Because I give you all of me
And you give me all of you
I give you all of me
And you give me all of you

I Will Always Love You de Whitney Houston

 Whitney Houston va ser una actriu i cantant nord-americana de R&B, soul, blues i gòspel.
 

If I should stay
I would only be in your way
So I’ll go but I know
If I should stay
I would only be in your way
So I’ll go but I know
I’ll think of you every step of the way

And I… will always love you, ooh
Will always love you
You
My darling, you…
Mmm-mm

Bittersweet memories –
That is all I’m taking with me.
So good-bye.
Please don’t cry:
We both know I’m not what you, you need

And I… will always love you
I… will always love you
You, ooh

[Instrumental / Sax solo]

I hope life treats you kind
And I hope you have all you’ve dreamed of
And I wish you joy and happiness
But above all this I wish you love

And I… will always love you
I will always love you
I will always love you
I will always love you

I will always love you
I, I will always love you.

You.
Darling, I love you.
I’ll always…
I’ll always love you.
Ooh
Ooh

I want your sex de George Michael

El recentment desaparegut cantant anglès d’ascendència grega George Michael  a I want your sex tracta l’atracció física que comporta l’amor. Quina relació podem establi amb els mites d’Hermafrodit i Salmacis que ens relata el poeta romà Ovidi o amb els amors d’Orió per Àrtemis.

Lletra de la cançó:

There’s things that you guess
And things that you know
There’s boys that you can trust
And girls that you don’t
There’s little things you hide
And little things that you show
Sometimes you think you’re gonna get it
But you don’t and that’s just the way it goes

I swear I won’t tease you
Won’t tell you no lies
I don’t need no bible
Just look in my eyes
I’ve waited so long baby
Now that we’re friends
Every man’s got his patience
And here’s where my ends

I want your sex
I want you
I want your sex

It’s playing on my mind
It’s dancing on my soul
It’s taken so much time
So why don’t you just let me go
I’d really like to try
Oh, I’d really love to know
When you tell me you’re gonna regret it
Then I tell you that I love you but you still say NO!

I swear I won’t tease you
Won’t tell you no lies
I don’t need no bible
Just look in my eyes
I’ve waited so long baby
Out in the cold
I can’t take much more girl
I’m losing control

I want your sex
I want your love
I want your sex

It’s natural
It’s chemical (let’s do it)
It’s logical
Habitual (can we do it?)
It’s sensual
But most of all
Sex is something that we should do
Sex is something for me and you

Sex is natural, sex is good
Not everybody does it
But everybody should
Sex is natural, sex is fun
Sex is best when it’s one on one
One on one

I’m not your father
I’m not your brother
Talk to your sister
I am a love

See, see, see, see, come on
What’s your definition of dirty baby
What do you consider pornography
Don’t you know I love it till it hurts me baby
Don’t you think it’s time you had sex with me

What’s your definition of dirty baby
What do you call pornography
Don’t you know I love it till it hurts me baby
Don’t you think it’s time you had sex with me

Sex with me
Sex with me
Have sex with me

See, see, see, see

“Castlewalls” de Christina Aguilera T.I.

Podem trobar algun paral·lisme mitològic a Castlewalls de Christina Aguilera & T.I. de l’àlbum No Mercy (2010)?

 

[Christina Aguilera]
Everyone thinks that I have it all
But it’s so empty living behind these castle walls
These castle walls
If I should tumble if I should fall
Would any one hear me screaming behind these castle walls
There’s no-one here at all, behind these castle walls

[T.I.]
Observing the estate through the gate from the outside looking in
Bet you would think I got it made, better look again
I got buttler, got a maid, and a mansion
The belief is that I’m living out a millionaires fantasy
Adictivoz.com With pantoms and ferrari’s in the driveway
But you see the pain and the change of the same man’s
Your vision jaded by the grammy’s on the mantelpiece
Just switch your camera lenses you would see the agony
Apparantly it’s damaging the man you see before you
On the canvas he may seem alright but all the disadvantage his family
Encounters overpowers his extravagance
Walk in my? I dare you
While it really seem like the kings life aint glamourous
As seen through the eyes of untrained amateurs
Because the camera’s don’t see beyond the walls of the smiles
Only counts until it falls in the pile.

[Christina Aguilera]
Everyone thinks that I have it all
But it’s so empty living behind these castle walls
These castle walls
If I should tumble if I should fall
Would any one hear me screaming behind these castle walls
There’s no-one here at all, behind these castle walls

[T.I.]
Honestly to me, I think I’d lose every benefit of all that I’ve accomplished
If my key is never with it, sh-t
Me knowing this, why should the verses I have laid
Be more important to me than the persons I have raised
I guess I’m saying that to say that ooportunity
But they just don’t equate to all the time they take away
From the kids all the sh-t I did right is a mistake
If Deyjah end up a stripper and Major slinging yay
How could I ever consider myself a great
If Messiah ain’t paid and nique nique ain’t straight
Would your favourite song about the whips, money and sh-t
Be relevant if you found out, the money wasn’t real, nope
So me being the goat shouldn’t mean more to me
Adictivoz.com Than see it to a king though
From a bad ass kid to man with some dough
Otherwise I may well have stayed poor
So while they stay focused on me beefin with flip,
Shawty Low, Gucci or Ludacris
Or if I’m f-cking with a hoe
Did I snitch when I got arrested or will I die over nonesense
Internally I’m dealing with this conflict
So excuse me if I don’t get the chance to kiss the hand
Or slap me in the face, ay I, m just the man
If they saying I ain’t the best at making hit records
It’s cause this my life these ain’t just rapping
Sh-t, you think of that deep, did ya dawg
See you can’t see the castle through the walls till it falls
Bitch ain’t thinking with the deep, did ya dog
Cause see you can’t see the castle through the walls till it falls

[Christina Aguilera]
Everyone thinks that I have it all
But it’s so empty living behind these castle walls
These castle walls
If I should tumble if I should fall
Would any one hear me screaming behind these castle walls
There’s no-one here at all, behind these castle walls

[Christina Aguilera]
Nobody knows I’m all alone
Living in this castle made of stone
They say that money is freedom but I feel trapped inside it all
And while I sit so high up on a throne
I wonder how I can feel this low
On top of the world it’s beautiful
But there’s no place to fall

[T.I.]
For the record ay, I give a damn if I never said sh-t again
My career was meant for me to come and tell it
Honest interpretation of how affected I’m faced with
Matters most rappers used to keep locked away in the basement
The day that I walk I ain’t saying that I’m amazing
Down playing the way I keep fellas from catching cases
Won’t take into consideration how much it mean what I’m saying
And when I say what I mean even when I’m sorrounded by the fakers
From one of the greatest centers, blessed with most of god’s graces
Who made his way amongst the greatest from the grimiest places
So next time you rating royalty, I’m always being given to recordings than the level
Of your loyalty, obvious you’ve been ignoring me Adictivoz.com
Who else ya seen make it through the storm, unharmed disjointed
While all the critics was looking for prince charming
Adictivoz.com Disregarded the king of the south raised doubt
Even though he made a castle out of used to be a house
He did sh-t that all your favourites rappers only rap about
But most of y’all don’t see the castle through the walls
And the smiles till it falls in piles so while…

[Christina Aguilera]
Everyone thinks that I have it all
But it’s so empty living behind these castle walls
These castle walls
If I should tumble if I should fall
Would any one hear me screaming behind these castle walls
There’s no-one here at all, behind these castle walls.

 

EL MITE

Acrísios, rei d’Argos, tenia una filla anomenada Dànae. Argos volia tenir un hereu, però no n’aconseguia cap; així que finalment va decidir consultar  l’oracle. L’oracle va dir que el fill de Dànae el mataria i li robaria el tron, així que va tancar la seva filla en una habitació de bronze on només hi havia una escletxa d’on sortia un raig de llum. Cada dia Dànae mirava aquest raig de llum fins que un dia Zeus es va convertir en llum i va entrar per l’escletxa. El cap de nou mesos va néixer Perseu en secret en aquella habitació fosca.

La relació que hi ha entre la cançó de Christina Aguilera i i el mite és que en la cançó la protagonista està tancada a dins d’un castell i no en pot sortir, només veu l’exterior a través de les finestres que té el castell. Al mite, Dànae està tancada dins d’una cambra i només pot veure la llum del sol través d’una finestra petita.

Més Penèlope a la música

Penèlope, la fidel muller d’Ulisses a l’Odissea, no deixa d’inspirar, ja teníem un apunt Ser Penèlope en la música en El Fil de les Clàssiques que ara es veu ampliat amb aquestes dues cançons:

“Penelope’s Song” dins Nights From The Alhambra (2007) de Loreena McKennitt

Now that the time has come
Soon gone is the day
There upon some distant shore
You’ll hear me say

Long as the day in the summer time
Deep as the wine dark sea
I’ll keep your heart with mine
Till you come to me

There like a bird I’d fly
High through the air
Reaching for the sun’s full rays
Only to find you there

And in the night when our dreams are still
Or when the wind calls free
I’ll keep your heart with mine
Till you come to me

Now that the time has come
Soon gone is the day
There upon some distant shore
You’ll hear me say

Long as the day in the summer time
Deep as the wine dark sea
I’ll keep your heart with mine
Till you come to me

Songs about Jane, una portada suggerent

Mirant entre els CDs de casa meva he trobat aquest de Maroon 5, un grup dels Estats Units. “Songs about Jane” va ser publicat al juny del 2002, amb el nom de l’ex-nòvia del cantant de la banda, Adam Levine.

Va obtenir els discs d’or, platí i triple platí en diferents països i no va ser fins a finals de 2004 en què el seu disc-debut va arribar al Top10 del Chart Billboard 200 (Estats Units).
Tot seguit us deixo la portada, no us fa recordar a res?…
