Heart on the stage

Number 1


Oh I/ I’m gonna be somebody’s number one/

So tell me if you that somebody/Throw me on the back burner I learn quick/ So just know when them tables turn that you’ve earned/ Nothing

I’m gonna be somebody’s number one/ So tell me if you that somebody/ Throw me on the back burner I learn quick/ So just know when them tables turn that you’ve earned


(Verse 1)

Thought I had the right one/ All about me I was all about him/ Unconditionally/ Happening, how could this happen to me? /How could it be I was second to none now I’m three?/ You always came first you’re my priority/ Every minute that I’m free is all yours/ But there’s a problem when it’s yours/ And you only standby when you want it?/ No, I’m closing all doors/And all the excuses they’re poor/ Tears continue to pour/ My resentment toward you festers inside me like a swollen pore/ My soul is sore but you mark my word I’ma soar/ I am woman hear me roar/ Cause an uproar when you see me leaving/ Conditioned my mind like you were a leave-in/ I don’t get even deleting my role/ That console and friends will console your soul right?/ They will kiss you goodnight?/ Kendrick said you’ll be alright

And so I’m taking that flight back to me/


Getting sick and tired cuz you lying through your teeth/ Say you can’t breath find it hard to believe/ I’m no longer naive

(Hook 1x)


(Verse 2)

Daddy told me never date a man who already has kids/ If you ain’t got your own it’s baby mama drama also difficult to fit in/ And I ain’t take his advice and now I’m wondering why/ Because for me you never have time/ And if I’m sounding selfish

It’s cuz I can’t help the way I feel about it inside/ I ain’t saying I should be number one/ Cuz I already know that I’m number two/ But I be feeling like a none and I know it ain’t right/ You should treat me like I treat you/ And I ain't end the first relay just to get into another neglect situation/ It doesn’t matter the reason cuz it is what it is/ Not up for deliberation/ And I ain’t got the patience time I’m not wasting/ Not so I could be forsaken/ Know I’m a catch that you once had to catch/ So no I don’t run when you need me to fetch/ Seems like I’m fighting for val/ All cuz you need to learn balance/ Caught in this negative valence/ I’m out of strength for the challenge

In Love With


Can you tell me without thinking?/

Before we jump into the deep end/

You say it’s me you want are you ready?/

I can’t be sure if we’re reaching/



Who, Who are you in love with? (Can you tell me without thinking?)/

Who, Who are you in love with? (Before we jump into the deep end)/

Who, Who are you in love with? (You say it’s me you want are you ready?)/

Who, Who are you in love with? (I can’t be sure if we’re reaching)/

Over time/You’ve seen both sides/

And so I/I wonder who?/

Who are you in love with?/

Who?/Who are you in love with/


(Verse 1)

Tell me what you love about me/

And tell me what you don’t/

Cuz I can tell if you really want what you think that you want off the dome/

I could be a handful/

And if you like an empty palm I can say I’m not the one for you/

Say it’s safe to run/

Writing’s on the wall I’ma drive you up a wall/

And when I do will we lose it all?/


I’ma be because I’m telling you up front/

You can leave now escape me problem solved/

Break free before you go invest another month/

Hehh hehh smokey is the mirror that is me/

Alluding to illusion Taija New not Taija Newton/You seeing the forbidden fruit and want to

sink your tooth in/

Love the alter she won’t stand beside you at the altar/Hope your mind doesn’t alter/

She’s a pro can you fault her?/

Teflon skin in a room full of men and I’m trying to blend in/And they brain on the sin/

And with you I ascend/

They say I got the whole package if you want it you can have it or you can remain a friend/


(Hook 1x)


(Verse 2)

Different you’re so different/

They say opposites attract but you're so different/

And you in love with how I act that’s when we’re the same though/And that’s when we see eye to eye that’s when we’re on the same note/

You in love with a persona/

And sometimes it makes me wonder/

Is it really me that you're fond of?/

Is it me you can’t get your mind off of?/

When you met me I was working/

And where we met is where we grew/

You aint know about them cons/

Only them pros was getting through/

To all my ladies in careers/

You’re professional as hell/

Just cuz you present your top shelf/

Doesn’t mean you're not being yourself/

And if he ain't with it then to hell with him/

Cuz who died and made him the judge?/

Just know you are the truth/

Keep being you/

It is what it is never what he thought it was/

Heart on the Stage

(Verse 1)

On my auditory nerve/

Yapping bout this never that/

N***** stay on my back/

Bragging bout their team and the game that they claim to be in/

Never been friends, n**** we ain't ever been friends/

Box you will never slide in/

B****** in the cut with they frocks in a bunch/

See me get it fair while they c***ks for they lunch/

Killing it brr brr murder it/

I’m the determined kid/

I got the purpose s*** I am the king/

bling on they fing while they clutching they’re ding/

From the looks of it looks like a fraud/

Stand and applaud your demolition oh so appalled how you lost to the chick with the bra/

Down down down watch em all fall/

Run this town? Really come on?/

Exclude all you want/

A fool for your thoughts some food for your thoughts the the care that you sought/

Realize how you fought, really b**** you thought/

Bleak on your pathway, mistakes of the past way you did it admit it you cater to drums that want/ none of the real they for fun and them pills is for bums I could say more but k b**** I’m done/



My territory/

When I’m all done they’ll be hella sorry/


Every time they make it rain a sob story/


All they talk bout is that foreign/

Meanwhile I’m up on that Lauryn/

Heart on the stage when I’m touring/

Cuz everybody tryna get paid/


Tell me what they do when the pen they really bout  the fame/

Who's gonna save us? (You do not want it with me)/

Tell me who's gonna save what they made?(You do not want it with me)/

Regardless of paper Newbian King leave her heart on the stage/


(Verse 2)

Anybody say I didn’t earn my keep is a ***damn lie/

They been doing this a long time/

Tell me how it look from the back of the line/

Talk about “Views” when that rap about shoes/

Seeing everything through a different hue/

Stable champion when you don’t have the option to lose/

I never miss a context clue/

I’m in command I’m a pilot you stewardess watch where you stand/

Aint on this flight let them out in the desert so signal the plane/

Manifest destiny know my success was all part of the plan/

Slay on the low but they know my M.O. when I silence them lambs/

I’m on they auditory nerve cuz I’m everywhere you cannot avoid me/

Stressing my constant anointing/

Stressing my presence I know I’m a joy thief/

Thought you were winning till I came along/

Couldn’t outdo me if I wrote the song/

Couldn’t outshine me in a sing-a-long/

Hope you kept that crown from your high school prom/

Blow 4 Blow

(Verse 1)

Rolled up to my house unannounced in an all-black car so I had it/

Brought the n**** out just to ask if he smashed or passed so let's have it/

Know he had to tell you more than once you're a dunce it'll never happen/

Newbian King in his dreams every night like a mattress/

I'm the screensaver on the phone when you call/

I'm the wallpaper on his laptop all/

Riddled on his page when you creeping that's me/

Valentine's Day on a cruise in the sea/

Wishing you were me/

N****s in the DM wishing they were he yet no one like you/

On my front lawn as he handing you the truth/

Do you know who I am?/

King Taija New/



Jackets for all these broads/

They know that they belong in an asylum/

What a faux pas/

I lay down the law it's time to abide them/

We must be killing them, killing them, killing them, killing them crazy/

This venom ain't for the lazy/

She let me yell and can't tame me/

Blow for blow/

Blow for blow/

Blow for blow/

Blow for blow/

We must be killing them, killing them, killing them, killing them crazy/

This venom ain't for the lazy/

She let me out and can't tame me/

(Verse 2)

Signal the plane/

This b**** deranged/

Calling and leaving them voicemails she toying she got me f***** up/

My man she's tempted to touch/

She see the bling on my fing now she testing her life/

Don't make me get out of character/

Way too simple to embarrass her/

Ain't you got 5 baby daddies?/

Ain't you trying to get a sixth?/

I ain't judging okay get it how you live/

I ain't got a fight with a fist/

Every my word will assist/

In your death by complete sentences/

I'm not going to stoop to your level/

I'm ahead of you/

Plus he go to bed with who?/

You jealous of the kid/I can tell you parched for a sip he won't give it to you/ Know he ain't a fool/

His momma raised him/

Oop girl she sure told her, get into it!/



(Hook 1x)



Who let the b****** out/

All they do is they run their mouth/

I am a king I'm a motherf***ing king/

And I got queens making sure the crown's clean/

T.Remm will tell them king I’ve been never fold on the flow b**** I'm always pristine/

Time and Patience

(Verse 1)

Time and patience/

Tired of waiting on you/

On you/

On you/

Stressed cuz I figure you’re already gone/


Get away can’t stay in your love, your way/

Away is where I’ll be/

Where I be here and forever always/



Hope you get it right/

Just sayin/

Your love comes with a price/

That I don’t plan on paying/

Turn it off, Turn it off, Turn it off/

That bill is too high/

Shut it down, shut it down, shut it down/

Cut off those lines cuz I’ve/

Been sleeping with the problem. How come/

I can’t seem to get out of debt with you? I want to be done/

No longer in need of your service/

For one and two/

You loan sharked my heart/

I want to get it back I swear I’m through/


(Verse 2)

Lies, fallacies, desires/

We gon see the truth, the truth/

Is this a fantasy?/

Don’t make a fool of me/

I know/

How it looks in public/

And everybody sees the spell that you got on me/

On me/

But I’m begging you please/


(Hook 1x)



You got me waiting/

Time you’ve been wasting/

It’s not ok and I wonder/

What could you need?/

If I’m the only one in love here/

I’d rather be in love with me/

I can’t go on thinking/

You’ll see that my word is bond/


So I’m writing songs to move on/

I hope you hear me/

(Verse 1)


They could never win/



They could never coast in the lane I’m in/

Pain to them/

Every single image I painted them/

Insane I am/

Beat to the 9’s forget the 10/

See the perpetration/

But the repetition dead/

I’ma put them all to bed/

You could never be me/

Even if you paid a fee to be the King

You’d never see me/

Ain’t got to tell them that I’m next/

Cuz they peeping all the stats

While they witnessing the facts/

Searching like a pap/

Like I died and made them nurse/

Looking like them paps/

Remember who did it first/



We some college graduates and we work down to the white meat/

Every time they ask what our worth is we pulling out certificates/ degrees/

Making all this cake is a crime we don’t leave no crumbs when we done/

We gon’ hip pose popping that gum/

140 and you still mad that I won? (I gave you that)!/

140 and you still mad that we won? (I gave you that)!/



We some Newbians we come out of nowhere/

Naysayer say you lying say you don’t care/

What come into one it go out the other ear/

Turn it into glitter and we throw it in the air/

No fear no we nuh feel no fear/

No fear no we nuh feel no fear/

No fear no we nuh feel no fear/

Turn it into glitter and we throw it in the air/


(Verse 2)

Pick your poison/

What is more annoying than my poise?/

Such a lady when I’m stunting on them big boys/

Decimate careers all while eating bok choi/

Taboo king making tabloids/


Applaud the implausible/

I was plotting you was spending on automobiles/

I was nothing even when you had time to kill/

I’ma show you how to pay a hundred dollar bill/

With a hundred dollar bill/

Tell you what it is while they tell you pop pills/

Always bout my biz even when he say it’s real/

Hit after hit General Mill/

Food for your thoughts general meal/

I Want It All


I want it all I want it all I want it/

Selfish I know I'm entitled I'm worth it/

You'll never find another like me I'm perfect/

I want it all I want it all I want it/

I want it all I want it all I want it/

I want it all I want it all I want it/

Selfish I know I'm entitled I'm perfect/

You'll never find another like me I'm worth it/


(Verse 1)

Everybody say they want a real one/

Got dudes in the dm by the 10s/

Many many men and I don't want none of em/

Standards in my book never bend/

I am a boss I don't settle for less/

If he worthless to me I don't ever depend/

Game strong everyday what the f*** I look like with a weak minded man to append/

If he ain't gotta ask for a thing/

I'ma desire the same gain/

Figure match my figure as the bills getting thicker/

And I figure if the relay gonna be a figure 8/

First date I lay out the landscape/

Couldn't score if his name was D Wade/

Bout my business always at the end of the day/

It's just me alone and Harriet's face/



You will never run into another that is worth the title/

Your relays crash and burn you always end up liable/

Ooo I'm too much/

You are not enough/

I want some accolades, I want some progress made, I want positive change/


(Hook 1x)


(Verse 2)

I don't ask for much but I want everything that I ask for/

They don't make them like me no more/

Newbian antique roadshow/

Hmm I'm so rare in my rear view mirror they disappear/

King and I'm on the top tier/

King I don't shed a tear/

It's lonely at the top , feel me/

Baggage quick to drop, If he trippin/

I call him a cab/

Insecure, disloyal, take out the trash/

Ain't no giving it away/

Ain't no giving it away/

I break boundaries by my g**d**n self/

Man up it's the only job left/

(Verse 1)

This if for my real boss women with the cute lace fronts/

Bad bad gyal so he tempted to touch/

We don't run the streets we run the business/

Pull up in the spot the windows tinted/ Make them timid they faces crimson/ Until he saw us he thought he was pimping/

These bars shake him right down to his tendons/

And we don't want your money yes we buy our own drinks/

And looking a** b****** mad they can't imitate/

I'm bout to bruk it down n**** give me some space/

Uh VIP and bottles for free with a check paid to the order of me/

Meh don't know bout fee/ Priceless tings for a Newbian King/

Open the purse it's like Emerald City/

We still smart and we so damn pretty/

B****** so tight speak my name out of spite/ They will spend their whole life trying to find how to end me/

I send a bottle to their table out of pity/ They told me he bought me the bar I said "Did he?"/

Oh so you trying to be sidity like Diddy/ How can he impress when I pave my own way?/

He said meh nuttin like dem otha gal/

Of course not what's a wild deuce to a spade?/



Headstrong with the body control oh (stick up, stick up dem not bad gyal give up, give up)/ Head strong with the body control oh (stick up, stick up dem not bad gyal give up, give up)/ Head strong with the body control oh (stick up, stick up dem not bad gyal give up, give up)/ Head strong with the body control oh (stick up, stick up dem not bad gyal give up, give up)/


(Verse 2)

And we so fiesty/

Still in a book/

Stealing every look with such ease/

How long it took?/

For them to maintain the basic/

Yo terminé/

B****** always making me sick/

We can't complain/

He loving the way we post up/

They creating single files we get so much love/

If she in denial tell her life's a tough b****/ We get everything that we want and then some/

While they slowing down we pick up momentum/

Ask him who she is him ah say meh friend dat/

Took him by the hand and she jumped in her bag/

So give us some space/

Ooo mash up the place/

Dare put his hand pon me waist/

Set floor ablaze/

Give his soul for deh taste/

Weh him ah made his mistake/

We don't entertain if he ain't our soulmate/

So exclusive how we lock the gold gates/ Check in my purse, checked my worth, checkmate/

Second to none, so they know collate/

Me catalyst she is such a substrate/

So independent he can't get enough/

He said meh nuttin like dem other gal/

It's the New Empire like my name King Tut/

The Chill



When the wind blows/

Do we all know/

If the chill cuts too close?/

And when the sun glows/

will we rise?/

Will the cold be our demise?/

(Verse 1)

Who are you?/

Leave the party oh so rude/

You know you the life of it/

That was corny you don't care about the price of it/

Take two/

What you mean it's over after take one?/

If he had to take one/

I would've volunteered but you beat me to it didn't you?/

Could've stayed a little longer like a minute or two/

Look at me I'm such a mess when I think of you/

I mean it's not your fault but it is/

You made me fall in love then you vanish what is this/

I felt my heart drop for the first time attack/

Riddling my brain like yo just relax/

You didn't send a call, not a text, nor a fax/

I sent you one though but you never write back/

(Hook 1x)

So you a follower?/

So you see her do it now you lay down too?/

I'm wondering when I said it was okay/

Cuz if I did I'll live to regret that day/


You see what you did?/

look at her so alone/

Embraces and faces can't help her/

So what now?/

This one is your fault/


It's funny how that goes/

Absence and all/

Silence at night/

When darkness falls/

Daily phone calls and you didn't wean her off/

Crying out your name at night when she tosses and turns/

Feeling deserted I feel for her/

Sometimes I cry for her crying for you/

I cry for you, I cry for her/

I cry till the tears stain and until my eyes burn/

(Hook 1x)



I miss you Auntie/

We miss you/

I miss you Nana/

We miss you/

Why you got an attitude/

So your homies told you, you a legend/
