Location (Remix) by Khalid ft. Lil Wayne and Kehlani

[Lil Wayne:]
Remix, baby, yeah

I meet you at the spot, send the location
I don’t do this a lot, special occasion
I know you ain’t a thottie, you ain’t no basic
I turn your dry spot to an oasis
I kiss the right spots, I know all the places
Oh I lick the right spots, that’s an ultimatum
The loud in rotation, cloud 9, floatation
Let the rose petals spread like rotation
I know your ex to blame for your cold nature
Tell him stay in his lane, stop the road ragin’
And now I got you in here makin’ those faces
Runnin’ ’round the bedroom like four bases, moolah!

[Khalid:]
Send me your location, let’s
Focus on communicating
‘Cause I just need the time and place to come through (place to come through)
Send me your location
Let’s ride the vibrations
I don’t need nothing else but you

At times I wonder why I fool with you
But this is new to me, this is new to you
Initially, I didn’t wanna fall for you
Gather my attention it was all for you, so don’t
Take advantage, don’t leave my heart damaged
To understand that things go a little bit better when you plan it… oh
So won’t you

Send me your location, let’s
Focus on communicating
‘Cause I just need the time and place to come through
Send me your location
Let’s ride the vibrations
I don’t need nothing else but you

[Kehlani:]
Drop me a pin, let’s fall
Way deeper into whatever we’re callin’ it
Whatever we’re fallin’ into
‘Cause I don’t really care about rules
I don’t really care about rules
I just really care about you
I’m enjoyin’ starin’ into
Your eyes when I’m all in it with you
They can choose to watch, but I’d rather they just listen
Could fill up an album with everything that they’re missin’
They so superficial, don’t understand how we’re chillin’
We don’t need a lot, we got us and that’s why we’re winnin’
To them it’s a park bench, us a magic carpet
Little trips to Target turn to avant garde shit
I promise, we got this, we got this
Baby just send me your

[Khalid {Kehlani}:]
Send me your location, let’s
Focus on communicating
‘Cause I just need the time and place to come through (place to come through)
{Time and place to come through}
Send me your location
Let’s ride the vibrations
I don’t need nothing else but you
{Nothing else, but you}

[Khalid {Kehlani}:]
Ride, ride, ride, come and vibe with me tonight
{Ride, ride}
I don’t need nothing else but you
(I don’t need nothing else but you)
Ride, ride, ride, come and vibe with me tonight
{Ride, ride… tonight}
I don’t need nothing else but you
{But you, but you}
Nothing else but you
{But you}
[Lil Wayne:] Remix, baby
[Khalid {Kehlani}:]
Do, do, do, do, do, do
{Do, do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do, do}
Oh, oh, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, mmm, mmm, mmm
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do
{Do, do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do, do}
I don’t need nothing else but you

Starting New

Recently God  broke some things up in my life. It was good though because I grew from the experiences. I closed some doors that should’ve been closed years ago. It was refreshing and empowering.

Did I tell you that I am afraid of love? Yes, I have been for most of my adulthood. I have been hurt a lot and decided it was safer not to trust my heart to a man. I am saddened by the number of men in this world who do not value women. The ones who are hurt and unloved use women as sex toys, bed warmers, friends with benefits etc. Whatever term you use to describe how they steal our virtue with no intentions of giving anything back to us. They use us, our bodies, and our benefits leaving us empty and depleted.

When I realized this pattern in my life, I took steps to take myself out of this cycle. I cannot fix the men but I can allow God to help me fix myself. First, I stopped giving away my virtue. I became celibate. I began to recognize the men who only wanted to use me and stayed away from them. I also paid attention to find out why some of them did it. (That’s another post, I promise)

 

I wrote a poem a few years ago about how men have wanted me but never cherished me just because they love me. I was presented with this love I have never known before. Guess what I almost ran away. Yeah, I know. Chicken. I finally meet a man who loves me the woman not just my body. He calls me beautiful each time I am in his presence. As he kisses me, his eyes show how much he feels for me.

This is refreshing but do you know what the most empowering experience was for me  recently? Looking at myself and falling in love with myself again. I love this woman! I love her more than he does.

I want to encourage all people not just women to understand the importance of loving yourself. You have to be able to embrace the good and bad things about yourself. As you allow God to show you the less than perfect you. Open your heart and also allow him to show you how to heal in that area so that you can be the best person you can.

Remember that perfection is not attainable but if we chase perfection we will catch excellence. You may never be perfect but you will excel as you travel the path to purpose and you will purposely give the best parts of yourself to others.

Continentally Divided

When you don’t matter anymore
Your color blends with the others
When the game has changed
Your hits don’t go anywhere

This is different
Not like before
It feels stale not alive
Fake unable to sustain
Any life at all

Peace has left the room
Her breath has ceased
Replaced with a substance
That’s sour and bitter

Huge and uncomfortable
It is not where I saw us
It is not where I want
But it’s the reality

That I failed to receive
That we are no more
At this moment
We are lost
Will we ever again be seen
To bask in the glory of us
