Liner Notes: 

I'm stoked to have the opportunity to work with @cola. I had a chance to catch a few of her tunes and was like: man, we gotta make some jelly. And so here we are. This is just a feel good song about being one's self, bucking the crowd and standing on your own two feet. And it's pretty nifty groove if you're just prancing around the house cleaning or whatever one does on the weekends in the house. Enjoy! Thanks so much for working with me, Chrissy!

Recorded and mixed using Acid Pro 6
Tweaked and mastered using Studio One Professional
Linn Drum sample programming

Cola drum sample: Cola
Lil Sweet samples
Various sound FX: sample library

Lyrics: 

INTRO
So many voices competing 4 your mind, y'know?
There's only one me and that's the way it's gonna be

I'm not like the cool kids
I never wear the same color socks
I dance 2 the music
Even after all the music's stopped

CHORUS
It's ever so, ever so beautiful
2 B the 1 that U behold - U're precious as gold
It's never, no never a benefit
2 B the shoe that always fits - u're precious as gold

I'm not like the old school
I question all the answers and the whys
I do what is true 2 me
The world is my canvas in the sky

I'm not like the wannabes
U love me or u hate me - it's all good
U can't make or break me
I'm me and I make it understood

CHORUS
It's ever so, ever so beautiful
2 B the 1 that U behold - U're precious as gold
It's never, no never a benefit
2 B the shoe that always fits - u're precious as gold

I'm not what U wanna see
I know I'm not the flavor of your tea
I'm just like I should be
The only true Cola - yeah, that's me

CHORUS
It's ever so, ever so beautiful
2 B the 1 that U behold - U're precious as gold
It's never, no never a benefit
2 B the shoe that always fits - u're precious as gold

VAMP
Futuristic
Optimistic
Groove-a-licious, sounds delicious
Sub-atomic, fem-bionic
Lit on tea, no gin and tonic
Wild, creative
Haters hate it
They just mad cuz they haven't made it
Peace & love; be about
1 united and I'm out...in2 the future
Yeah...the future

It's done, woohoo! Smile

I loved doing the vocals for this - it was a lot of fun to take on the quirky and confident persona described in the lyrics, and the rap section was definitely a fun challenge, too, haha. Thanks for letting me be a part of this, and I hope we get a chance to collaborate again in the future!

(...the future)

This is so fantastic!!! The layering and the sound effects and I absolutely love the lyrics. I teach public school and my students would love this so much. This is a marvelous collaboration! Good on you both!
