Blood on the leaves è il terzo singolo di Kanye West tratto da Yeezus

Pochi giorni dopo aver fatto parecchio parlare di sé con la clip di Bound 2, ha annunciato, nel corso di un’intervista all’emittente radiofonica 92.3 NOW, il titolo del prossimo singolo tratto da Yeezus: la scelta è ricaduta su Blood on the leaves.

Questa canzone, che campiona Strange Fruit di Nina Simone, è indubbiamente uno dei più bei pezzi del disco (ne avevamo parlato qui) e racconta di un doloroso e squallido matrimonio di facciata.

In attesa della pubblicazione ufficiale del singolo e del relativo video, Kanye West non ha certo perso l’occasione di tirar fuori ancora una volta la sua vis polemica: nella stessa intervista il rapper di Detroit avrebbe infatti chiesto ai suoi fan di boicottare la marca Louis Vuitton, dopo non essere riuscito a ricevere un appuntamento da parte del management del brand.

Non so voi, ma personalmente non mi verrà difficile continuare a non comprare i loro prodotti!

Testo

I just wanna clear my mind now
It’s been racin’ since the summertime
And I’m holdin’ down the summer now
And all I want is what I can’t buy now
Cause I ain’t got the money on me right now
And I told you to wait
Yeah I told you to wait
So I’m a need a little more time now
Cause I ain’t got the money on me right now
And I thought you could wait
Yeah, I thought you could wait
These bitches surroundin’ me
All want somethin’ out me
Then they talk about me
Would be lost without me
We could’ve been somebody
Thought you’d be different ’bout it
Now I know you naughty
So let’s get on with it

You could’ve been somebody
‘Stead you had to tell somebody
Let’s take it back to the first party
When you tried your first molly
And came out of your body
And came out of your body
Running naked down the lobby
And you was screamin’ that you love me
Before the limelight tore ya
Before the limelight stole ya
Remember we were so young
When I would hold you
Before the glory
I know there ain’t wrong with me

Something strange is happening

You could’ve been somethin’
We could’ve, we could’ve been somebody
Or was it all our first party
When we tried our first molly
And came out of our body
And came out of our body

Before they call lawyers
Before you tried to destroy us
How you gon’ lie to the lawyers?
It’s like I don’t even know ya
I gotta bring it back to the ‘Nolia

Fuck them other niggas cause I’m down with my niggas
Fuck them other niggas cause I’m down with my niggas
Fuck them other niggas cause I’m down with my niggas
I ride with my niggas, I’ll die for my…

To all my second string bitches, trying to get a baby
Trying to get a baby, now you talkin’ crazy
I don’t give a damn if you used to talk to Jay-Z
He ain’t with you, he with Beyonce, you need to stop actin’ lazy
She Instagram herself like “Bad bitch alert”
He Instagram his watch like “Mad rich alert”
He only wanna see that ass in reverse
Two thousand dollar bag with no cash in your purse
Now you sittin’ courtside, wifey on the other side
Gotta keep ’em separated, I call that apartheid
Then she said she impregnated, that’s the night your heart died
Then you gotta go and tell your girl and report that
Main reason cause your pastor said you can’t abort that
Now your driver say that new Benz you can’t afford that
All that cocaine on the table you can’t snort that
That going to that owing money that the court got
On and on that alimony, uh, yeah-yeah, she got you homie
‘Til death but do your part, unholy matrimony
