Happy Hump Day Blogosphere!


So, a little while ago, and maybe it is more like a "Way back Wednesday" tune as fast as songs come and go these days, but i'm intrigued by the Rihanna featuring Kanye West and Paul McCartney song...yep, Four-Five Seconds.

This song has grown to be my jam!!

Now, I admit, when I first heard the song, I was like "wtf, has Kanye gone off the deep end while holding on to Rihanna and Sir Paul, taking them down with him?' But, then one day, I was riding in my car and the song came on. Concentrating on the traffic that I was making my way through, I noticed about a quarter of the way through the song playing, that it actually had some substance. So, when I got home I decided to pull it up and take a listen.

Peep the lyrics:


I think I've had enough

I might get a little drunk

I say what's on my mind
I might do a little time
'Cause all of my kindness
Is taken for weakness

[Hook - Rihanna:]
Now I'm Four Five Seconds from wildin'
And we got three more days 'til Friday
I'm just tryna make it back home by Monday mornin'
I swear I wish somebody would tell me
Ooh, that's all I want

[Verse 2 - Kanye West:]
Woke up an optimist
Sun was shinin', I'm positive
Then I heard you was talkin' trash
Hold me back, I'm 'bout to spaz

[Hook - Rihanna and Kanye West:]
Yeah I'm 'bout Four Five Seconds from wildin'
And we got three more days 'til Friday
I'm tryna make it back home by Monday mornin'
I swear I wish somebody would drive me
Ooh, that's all I want

[Bridge - Rihanna:]
And I know that you're up tonight
Thinkin', "How could I be so selfish?"
But you called 'bout a thousand times
Wondering where I've been
Now I know that you're up tonight
Thinkin', "How could I be so reckless?"
But I just can't apologize
I hope you can understand

[Verse 3 - Kanye West:]
If I go to jail tonight
Promise you'll pay my bail
See they want to buy my pride
But that just ain't up for sale
[Rihanna and Kanye West:]
See all of my kindness
Is taken for weakness

[Hook - Rihanna and Kanye West:]
Now I'm Four Five Seconds from wildin'
And we got three more days 'til Friday
I'm tryna make it back home by Monday mornin'
I swear I wish somebody would tell me
Ooh, that's all I want

Four Five Seconds from wildin'
And we got three more days 'til Friday
Just tryna make it back home by Monday mornin'
I swear I wish somebody would tell me
'Cause that's all I want 

Once I'd finished listening to the song lyrics the first time, I found myself playing the song on repeat. No, not because i'm "4-5 seconds from wildin'", but from feeling the melody and how clever the song was. It was almost like I was standing in an art gallery, looking at an abstract piece of art seeing something so ecclectic that it was intriguing. 

To me the mood of this song says, "I'm just trying to live and have a good day, and here (Insert random bs'er or other issue) comes trying to mess up my day...and I'm not here for that!" I think Kanye was awesome for this!
