Two Music Titans Release their First Collabo and Its Now Our Record of the Week

maxresdefault

Riding the overwhelming success that his recent body of work ‘DAMN’ has so far garnered, Kendrick Lamar practically owned radio airwaves around the world with his track ‘HUMBLE’ and he’s looking to do the same with his collaborative effort ‘LOYALTY’.

This second release from the album is the first time these two music icons and chart topping artists have come together on a track, the long wait perhaps being due to the fact that Riri happens to be friends with Drake who has been on occasion perceived to be Kendrick’s music rival.

Their alleged rivalry aside, ‘LOYALTY’ took airwaves by storm and involves Rihanna singing (and at some point showing off her rap skills) while Kendrick what we all know him to do best which …you guessed it…. is to spit some serious bars.

Coming only one week after he ruled our airwaves as record for the week with ‘HUMBLE’, Kendrick is back to reclaim his throne as ‘Record of the Week’ with the Anthony ‘Top Dawg’ Tiffith, Terrace Martin, Son Wave and DJ Dahi produced jam ‘LOYALTY’. 

Here are the songs lyrics;

[Intro: Mr. Talkbox]

[Pre-Chorus: DJ Dahi]
I said I’m geeked and I’m fired up (fired, fire)
All I want tonight is just to get high up (high, high, high)
Girl, you look so good, it’s to die for (die for)
Ooh, that pussy good, it’s to die for (on fire)

[Chorus 1: Kendrick Lamar & Rihanna]
It’s a secret society
All we ask is trust
(All we ask is trust)
All we got is us
Loyalty, loyalty, loyalty
Loyalty, loyalty, loyalty

[Verse 1: Kendrick Lamar]
Kung Fu Kenny now
My resume is real enough for two millenniums
A better way to make a wave, stop defendin’ them
I meditate and moderate all of my wins again
I’m hangin’ on the fence again
I’m always on your mind
I put my lyric and my lifeline on the line
And ain’t no limit when I might shine, might grind
You rollin’ with it at the right time, right now
(Only for the dollar sign)

[Verse 2: Rihanna]
Bad gyal RiRi now
Swerve, swerve, swerve, swerve, deeper now
On your pulse like it’s EDM
Gas in the bitch like it’s premium
Haul ass on a bitch all in the fast lane
Been a bad bitch way before any cash came
I’m established
Hundred carats on my name
Run the atlas, I’m a natural, I’m alright

[Verse 3: Kendrick Lamar & Rihanna]
I’m a savage, I’m a asshole, I’m a king
Shimmy-yeah, shimmy-yeah, shimmy-yeah, rock (yeah)
You can tell your nigga he can meet me outside (yeah)
You can babysit him when I leave him outside
Ain’t no other love like the one I know
I done been down so long lost hope
I done came down so hard I slowed
I don’t sleep forever, all a real nigga want

[Pre-Chorus: DJ Dahi]
I said I’m geeked and I’m fired up (fired, fire)
All I want tonight is just to get high up (yeah)
(All I want is, all I want is)

[Chorus 2: Kendrick Lamar & Rihanna]
Loyalty, loyalty, loyalty
Loyalty, loyalty, loyalty
10-4, no switchin’ sides
Feel somethin’ wrong
You actin’ shifty, you don’t ride
With me no more, I need
Loyalty, loyalty, loyalty
Loyalty, loyalty, loyalty

[Verse 4: Kendrick Lamar]
Tell me who you loyal to
Is it money? Is it fame? Is it weed? Is it drink?
Is it comin’ down with the loud pipes and the rain?
Big chillin’, only for the power in your name
Tell me who you loyal to
Is it love for the streets when the lights get dark?
Is it unconditional when the ‘Rari don’t start?
Tell me when your loyalty is comin’ from the heart

[Verse 5: Rihanna & Kendrick Lamar]
Tell me who you loyal to
Do it start with your woman or your man? (Mmm)
Do it end with your family and friends? (Mmm)
Or you’re loyal to yourself in advance?
I said, tell me who you loyal to
Is it anybody that you would lie for?
Anybody you would slide for?
Anybody you would die for?
That’s what God for

[Pre-Chorus: DJ Dahi]
I said I’m geeked and I’m fired up (fired, fire)
All I want tonight is just to get high up
(All I want is, all I want is)

[Chorus 2: Kendrick Lamar & Rihanna]
Loyalty, loyalty, loyalty
Loyalty, loyalty, loyalty
10-4, no switchin’ sides
Feel somethin’ wrong
You actin’ shifty, you don’t ride
With me no more, I need
Loyalty, loyalty, loyalty
Loyalty, loyalty, loyalty

[Outro: Rihanna]
It’s so hard to be humble
It’s so hard to be
Lord knows I’m tryin’
Lord knows I’m dyin’, baby
