She drops to the TLC album CrazySexyCool within the pre-chorus when she sings about embracing the extra uncommon issues about her persona, “A bit of loopy, little horny, little cool / Little tough across the edges however I preserve it easy / I’m all the time left of heart and that’s proper the place I belong / I’m the random minor word you hear in main songs.”
Elsewhere within the midtempo R&B anthem, Monáe addresses a particular incident by which any individual reacted negatively to one of many many alternative hairstyles she’s worn over the course of her profession, singing that whereas it harm, it didn’t influence her confidence: “Uh, I keep in mind once you laughed after I lower my perm off / And also you rated me a six / I used to be like, ‘Rattling’ / However even again then with the tears in my eyes / I all the time knew I used to be the shit.”
Take heed to “I Like That” above. Soiled Laptop is out four/27 through Atlantic. Pre-order it right here.
