Lyrics:
[Verse 1]
Ain’t got no riches, ain’t got no money that runs long
But I got a heart that’s strong and a love that’s tall
Ain’t got no name, ain’t got no fancy education
But I can see right through, a powdered face on a painted fool
Let me slip through (Let me slip through)
Why you tryna hold me back? (I ain't)
I’m just tryna move up front
Lil more of this, lil less of that (Can you feel me?)
Let me come through (Let me come through)
I’m tired being in the back (Aight)
I’m just tryna move up front
A lil more of this, a lil less of that, yeah

[Chorus]
They tell me I was born to lose
But I made a good good thing out of bad bad news

[Verse 2]
I don’t worry, don’t worry, don’t worry about people in my face
I hit ‘em with the style and grace, and watch their ankles break
I know you wish, I know you wish I would fade away
But I got more to say, Lord they pray
Let me slip through (Let me slip through)
Why you tryna hold me back? (I ain't)
I’m just tryna move up front
Lil more of this, lil less of that (Can you feel me?)
Let me come through (Let me come through)
I’m tired being in the back (Aight)
I’m just trynna move up front
A lil more of this, a lil less of that, yeah

[Chorus]
They tell me I was born to lose
But I made a good good thing out of bad bad news

Alright alright, all day all night
Alright alright, all day all night
Alright alright, all day all night
Alright alright, all day all night
They tell me I was born to lose
But I made a good good thing out of bad bad news

Black folks seriously need to get behind this brother right here. He actually putting out real music that actually good unlike most of these other not talent having clowns today. And not to mention the rest of the "culture vultures" out right now. They better get him to preform at the BET Awards in June.

Woah! Literally all the emotions we as women feel whenever this happens... you get angry, cry, try to forget it happen with a good song and also feel the urge to chase him down and confront him. This is sooo good! At the end she rubbed her head against him, to me that means she exposed him the intellectual part of her body. *Slow clap* to the team, amazing!

Leon cares about the composition. He gives a damn about musicianship. Another excellent piece from him.

Paloma Elsesser excels in her role as performer here. Her StyleLikeU interview on YouTube is an equally good watch. Very enlightening.

Gosh. The ending doesn't entail her simply tracking down some cat-caller and "confronting him with her mind" or rubbing his chest with the "most powerful part of her" or even "marking him" like a cat in response to his cat-call. She has her own turmoil, and he's the representative of it. She approaches him with her hand on his neck which literally puts him on his heels. But she takes the time to look into his eyes and then lay her head on his chest, giving him enough time to even embrace her if he would, although that's obviously not what she's after from him (or it). She makes the head turn with full eye contact into his eyes, so he can see her from every angle. Fearless. She's not intimidated by whatever he represents for her. She even stares him down before walking away. It's simply ending the video with the protagonist in turmoil from something or someone, chasing it down, trying to understand it, dancing through it, smiling through it, crying through it, then confronting and finally walking away from it (him). She's done peeking around corners at what's been eating at her.

This man always seems like he has a ton of love for everyone. I want to hug him for all of us. It will likely turn in dancing though.
